2021 Miller Lite Greatest Golfer Scramble Championship

Is your scramble team the best in the Valley? Then put it up against 23 other teams on Aug. 14 as part of the Miller Lite Greatest Golfer Scramble Championship.

To get into the Miller Lite Greatest Scramble Championship, your team must win a charity scramble elsewhere in the Valley this summer. We partner with 24 charity scrambles and Superior Beverage every summer to create a qualifier series of scrambles that all lead to crowning the Valley’s Greatest Scramble team.

The list below is our 2017 lineup of qualifier scrambles. Find an event that fits your schedule, then step up and qualify. Register for those events via the listed contact person. From there, you will get info on getting into the 2017 Miller Lite Greatest Scramble Championship.

Swing straight, long — and as few times as possible. For more information, email Todd Franko at tfranko@vindy.com.
