The 2016 Asbury Athletics Golf Scramble is quickly approaching. The Scamble this year is held at Connemara Golf Course, home to the Asbury Men’s and Women’s golf teams on Monday, April 18 at 9 a.m.
A golf scramble is played with teams of four. Each player from the team tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shot is then selected, and all players play their second shots from that spot. The better of the second shots is determined, and then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.
This will be the second year Asbury has hosted this event. Last year, the scramble was held at Champion Trace Country Club. The event is held to honor and support all the Asbury sports team. The funds raised will go to support Asbury University Athletics in ways that go “above and beyond” the annual budget. Atheltic Director Mark Perdue leads the event along with the help of Paul Niswander the Director of Giving for Athletics. The mens and women’s golf team will also be out on the course on the day of the event. Besides helping in the overall set up, they’ll also be available to lend a hand (or club) on a couple of holes throughout the course.
“We are so pleased to be involved in the Asbury Golf Classic,” said Nic Robinson, Head Pro at Connemara and Head Coach of the Women’s Golf Team. “It’s exciting to have everyone out. This will be a chance for people to see where the golf teams at Asbury practice every day.”
