There are many formats and scoring systems to choose from, and our professional staff will help you decide which format ensures that everyone in your event has a great day on the golf course. Below are a couple examples of the most popular formats.
This format is the most popular tournament format because only the best shot is used from each group; the pace of the game is very fast and the format gives you the ability to pair all levels of golfers together. Each team consists of two or four players. On every hole, each team member drives and the best drive is selected by the team Captain. Each team member then plays a second shot from the spot where the selected drive lays, and the best second shot is selected. This process is repeated until the hole is completed.
This format may be played as two-, three- or four-player teams. Golfers play their own ball on each hole and the lowest gross score is recorded as the team score. This is a fun format with an average pace of play usually chosen for group of avid golfers.
Like in a scramble, all members of a team (usually four) tee off, and the best ball of the four tee shots is selected. All players move their balls to the spot of the best ball. From this point, the hole is played out as stroke play, with all members of the team playing their own ball into the hole.
