Shamble Format:
A shamble is a type of golf tournament that combines elements of a scramble with elements of regular stroke play.  Like in a scramble, all members of a team tee off and the best ball of the four tee shots is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, the hole is played out at stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole.

The scheduled Japan 2017 Tour has been cancelled due to low numbers.  Any questions contact Knoxie at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
