The Shamble is a tuneup for the start of the Alberni Golf Course’s Men’s Club, which is scheduled for Sunday, March 30.

Head pro Bruce MacDonald calls it a Shamble— a cross between a scramble and regular golf.

The Shamble happens on Sunday, March 16 with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.

The format is as follows: there will be four-man teams.

All players will tee off then choose which drive to use.

You then play your own ball from that point into the hole.

You add the best net and best gross together.

You will be required to use two different team members’ score on each hole. Each player must contribute at least three drives.

You will be allowed six-inch improvement and traps will be rake and place.

Don’t forget it is essential that all putts be holed out.

Please register in the pro shop ASAP with your own foursome or as a single and Bruce will put you in a group.

You can phone the club at 250-723-5422.

The price is $20 per player.

You are responsible for your own lunch.
