Which type of outing is right for your group?

Group Golf from 12-144 Golfers

Whether it is a corporate or charity outing, bachelor party, or just a group of friends getting out for the day – Candlewood has 3 tournament formats to make your outing a success!

  • Full Field Shotgun Outing (100+ Golfers): All foursomes begin at the same time on a different hole, and this format can accommodate up to 144 players.
  • Modified Shotgun Outing (40-90 Golfers):  For groups under the 100 golfer minimum who would like to start at the same time. All groups start and finish at the same time without using the entire course to start. Groups will usually start on the back nine, and Hole number 1.
  • Reserved Tee Time Outing (12+ Golfers): One foursome tees off every 9 minutes from Hole 1. These are best for smaller groups.


Our Golf Professional recommends the following 3 of the more popular scoring formats, and will help you choose which one is best for your group. (Based on experience, skill level, and group size)

  •  Scramble: The most popular and most widely used for any size group and skill set. This is a team event with only one score per hole. Each team member hits their drive off the tee, the best drive of the group plays their second shot off that location. This format continues until the ball is holed out.
  • Best Ball: Each player plays their ball for the entire hole. The best score of the foursome is recorded.
  • Shamble: This is a combination of a Scramble and Best Ball format. Each player hits their drive off the tee, and from this shot only the foursome picks the best drive and each player hits their own ball from this location for the rest of the hole.  This format works with a mixed group of high and low handicap golfers.

Please note that Callaway Tournaments are not permitted at Candlewood Valley Country Club.
