Captain's Choice


Definition: "Captain's Choice" is usually just another name for a scramble format. See the scramble definition for details.

As the name implies, in Captain's Choice one member of the scramble team is designated as captain and has the final say on all choices during play.

The Captain's Choice format is typically played with four golfers per team, but might also be called a 3-Man Captain's Choice or 2-Man Captain's Choice if only three or two golfers are grouped per team. There is also an individual version called One Person Captain's Choice in which one golfer plays two balls.

Also Known As: Scramble, Super Ball, Captain's Choice Scramble
"The scramble is a captain's choice, so the first thing we need to do is agree on our team captain."
