A Henry Cotton designed parkland golf course

Ely City Golf Course is a 72 par 6279 yds (6537 yrds off the white tees) Henry Cotton designed parkland course located on the outskirts of the city. Opened in 1962, and extended to 18 holes in 1973, the course provides a true test for golfers of all abilities.

At the Golf Pairs Tour, although we started with only offering pairs competitions, we have increased our offerings to singles events in 2022 and in 2023 we are going to introduce a big favorite at Golf Clubs around the country - the Scramble.

Played in groups of 4 golfers and open only to those with formal WHS handicaps - the Scramble  is a fun sociable golf format where groups play as a team, pick the best shot from the group of 4, and all play from that spot until someone holes out. Texas Variant - Team score - All players play each shot - select the best - all players play from that spot until the ball is holed.
  • Florida Variant - Team score - All players drive - select the best - all but the player who played the previous shot play from that spot until someone holes out.
  • Typically everyone needs a certain number of drives to ensure everyone is participating fully, and handicaps are complicated but calculated as follows.
  • Scramble (4 players) 25% / 20% / 15% / 10% from the lowest to highest handicap
  • Scramble (3 players) 30% / 20% / 10% from the lowest to highest handicap
  • Scramble (2 players) 35% Low / 15% High
For example a team of 4 with 5, 10, 15 and 20 playing handicaps, your team Texas Scramble handicap would be a total of 7.5 (Rounded to 8) which would be deducted from the team’s gross score. (Player 1: 1.25 (5 x 25%), Player 2: 2 (10 x 20%), Player 3: 2.25 (15 x 15%), Player 4: 2 (20 x 10%))
Don’t worry - Golf Genius will sort it all for you - as usual all you have to do is enter your gross score on the hole!
Prizes Due to the nature of the Scramble where groups of golfers essentially follow the rules themselves without any cross checking or verification, the prizes at these events are token.
However green fees are low - so everyone can have a fun day out and win something at the same time!
