I will be scoring for an upcoming Scramble tournament and looking for recommendations for the best handicapping system.
Most of the golfers do not have established indexes.
I am leaning toward the Standard Peoria Handicap system, but looking for feedback on the best/fairest system to use.
Your input is appreciated.

QUOTED  Most of the golfers do not have established indexes.

That poses a huge problem as many will say 'I usually shoot in the 90's so I should be a 20 handicap' ... then they go out and play much better. No matter what handicap method you use, make sure you think about 1) minimum tee shots for each team member (usually 2) and, 2) try to keep the 'prizes' at a minimum so as to spread the wealth. Maybe even give the last place team a prize.

Here's another idea from the Pope of Slope: http://www.popeofslope.com/scramble/handicapping.html

Good luck.

Have them send you jpg's of three recent rounds. Use those to calculate handicaps. You'll always have sandbaggers no matter what you do. I second sngernz- Minimum number of drives from each player. Lots of variations on how to do that. If it's a 'for fun' round I'll share some with you.
