Competitors will play the yardages as follows:
MALE competitors will play from the BLUE club tees. All FEMALE competitors will play from the RED club tees.
Rules of Golf - The Golf Canada Rules of Golf will govern all competition, except for those specialized Scramble Rules in place for the RBC PGA Scramble. COVID-19 protocols are subject to change based on provincial government and health authority requirements.
RBC PGA Scramble Format – This event will be operated under the standard Scramble Format. All team members may play from the teeing ground of each hole. The team then chooses the shot that gives them the best chance for the next shot and all players play the next stroke from that spot. This process continues until the ball is on the green.
Physical Distance – Every competitor must observe physical distancing requirements (2m or more) at all times and must not touch or use anything that belongs to another competitor (this includes golf balls and items used to mark a ball’s location). Players should try to walk if possible and may only share motorized transportation if they are from the same household.
Flagsticks – The flagstick is to remain in the hole at all times and must not be touched. Devices are to be used to allow the ball to be retrieved from the hole without contact. The ball must come to rest within the hole to be considered holed.
Three Tee Shots – A minimum of three (3) tee shots per team member must be used per eighteen (18) hole round. With electronic scoring it will not be required to note the drives on the scorecard, however, this rule must still be followed and team captains may be asked to verify whose tee shots were used on each hole.
Selected Shot - If the selected shot is in the general area (anywhere on the course, except any penalty area, bunker, teeing area or putting green of the hole being played) the ball must be placed within one (1) club length of the selected shot, no nearer the hole, and must remain in the general area. If the selected ball is in a penalty area the next shot must be played from the penalty area, or from outside the penalty area per the applicable Rule under penalty of one-stroke (unless additional penalties apply). If the selected ball is in a bunker the next shot must be played from the bunker, or from outside the bunker per the applicable Rule under penalty of one-stroke (unless additional penalties apply). A ball that is not on the putting green of the hole being played, may not be placed on the putting green, even if it is within one club-length of the marked ball.
In a bunker, the sand may be smoothed (with a foot or club) prior to any ball being placed, as rakes will not be available on the course.
On the putting green, each ball must be placed within one putter head of the marked position and played from there.
Scorecard – Scoring will be done electronically in 2021. Each team captain will be required to download the Golf Genius App and will be provided with the GGID to log in prior to the start of the competition. Before the competition, each team must verify that their Handicap Indexes are correct as of the entry closing date. During the round, the team captain should post scores upon completion of each hole. The team captain will have five minutes from the time of submission to correct a wrong score with the host club. As per the World Handicap System, the team’s Playing Handicap will consist of 25% of the lowest player’s Course Handicap, 20% of the second-lowest, 15% of the third-lowest and 10% of the highest player’s Course Handicap. This Playing Handicap will be subtracted from the gross score for the net score. Signing for an lower score than actually made or incorrect handicap will lead to automatic disqualification from the event under Rule 3.3.
