Member and his selected guest are partners. Each player will hit his/her drive and the team will select the best drive for that 2 person team to use for the next shots. Each team member will hit the second shot from that point and the team will again select the ball location to be used for the next shots. This will continue until the ball is holed out. All putts must be holed out. All balls to be played from the selected ball location may be placed within one club length (6" on the putting green) no closer to the hole than that original location. If the selected ball location is to be played in a penalty area, both balls must be played from the penalty area. Each team will be required to use a minimum of 4 tee shots from each player during the round, including the Par 3s.

On Seminole #2, for a ball that is in the LEFT penalty area, the player may proceed under Rule 17, or as an additional option, drop a ball in the DZ under penalty of one stroke.
