The team then selects one of the tee shots and marks the spot from which to play. The player whose shot is selected WILL NOT play the next shot (Step Aside). On each stroke (except for the tee shot, which all four golfers play) one team member is always stepping aside. This procedure is repeated until the ball is holed.

A team’s course handicap is based on the total of all four players’ indexes and a team course handicap is assigned based on the USGA recommended Scramble Team Handicap.
