Shotgun Start Tee Times with “Scramble Format”
In a Scramble, each player will tee off and the best ball is selected. Each player will then hit from that spot, moving their golf ball no more than one club length. The best second shot is selected and everyone will then hit from that spot. This is continued until the ball is holed.

Golf handicaps will be needed for each participating golfer. The maximum handicap is 30 for men and 35 for women. Ten percent of combined team handicaps will be used.

golf-iconAbout the Tournament

The McLaran Classic is one of the best ways to connect with the mid-Willamette Valley’s top business decision-makers. With more than 200 community leaders taking to the course in one day, this is one of the largest golf tournaments in the region for business professionals. Golfers of all skill levels are welcome in the featured 4-person scramble format. Sponsors are set up throughout the course to greet participants and treat golfers to food, drinks, and giveaways.

 The Salem Area Chamber of Commerce began its annual golf tournament in 1989. The tournament was renamed in 2013 in honor of Mike McLaran, who passed away suddenly in March of 2013. Mike served as CEO of the Salem Chamber for 16 years, and was a leader, a colleague, a mentor and a friend to many in our community. His life was an example to all of us.

Each year, we have chosen to feature one of the “McLaranisms” — some of Mike’s memorable wisdom about leadership, life, and success. Read more McLaranisms here.

“Discipline: You can’t lead others if you don’t first manage yourself.”
