Metropolitan Golf Links
2-Player 9/9 Scramble/Best Ball

 
In the tradition of the great links courses, Metropolitan Golf Links is wide open. There's even some heather and clusters of native grasses to add to the ambiance. But the fairways are mostly open and the greens are large and receptive so that even the high-handicapper can get around expeditiously. Golfers who play Metropolitan Golf Links frequently know to find the correct part of the green for their approach shots and learn to putt the undulating green surfaces. The maintenance team strives, especially in the summer, to keep the course fast and firm—just the way a links course should be.

Metropolitan Golf Links is not overly bunkered and there are only a few water hazards that come into play. Yet with winds coming in off the San Francisco Bay, Metropolitan Golf Links has plenty to challenge the better golfer. Miller and Bliss have designed the course so that the low-handicapper will have to think his or her way around the course to score well. With six sets of tees to chose from, Metropolitan Golf Links offers a fun and challenging course for golfers of all skill levels!

Format: 2-Player 9/9 Scramble/Best Ball
A team will consist of 2 players - select a "Pairing Request" at sign up or leave it blank and the TD will match up unassigned players. The first 9 holes will be played as a scramble: each player hits a tee shot, the team selects the best shot and both players hit another shot from there; continue until the ball is holed out. The second nine will be played as a best ball: each player plays their own ball until holed out; the best net score of the two counts as the team score for each hole.

Please Note: Any special pairing requests and/or tee time requests are at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director and are not guaranteed.
