Tournament Rules

  • Foursome Scramble.   All players tee off… Select best position to play from… Play in any order from within 1 club length of that position (no closer). Repeat the process until any (1) team ball is holed. When on the putting green, place all balls on the exact spot of selected ball.
  • On the HONOR SYSTEM…All players drives must be used at least 3 times during your round.
  • Winter rules are in effect. You may roll your ball no more than one club length, no closer to the pin in the rough and fairway. You cannot change the hitting surface (if ball lands in rough, it must be hit from the rough). You may not roll your ball in hazards, bunkers or on the green.
  • Scoring:  Lansdowne Resort is now using Golf Genius App.  One player from each team will need to download the app. Instructions will be available in the rules sheet provided by the Lansdowne Resort.
  • Men tee from the white tees. Women tee from the green tees.
  • Clubs have gone spikeless. The Clubs will retrofit your golf shoes with softspike cleats for a fee.
