What are the formats and how do they work?
Playing as a pair, both players will play normal golf on each hole, using their own ball
They will choose the lowest NET score as their Team score.
Playing as a pair, players take alternate shots using the same golf ball.
One player tees off on the even numbered holes and the other tees off on the odd numbered holes.
Foursomes is the most difficult of the formats played by pairs. It requires a bit more use of your brain as you also have to think about how to help your partner play well, on top of playing well yourself.
Playing as a pair, both players will tee off using a ball each.
They will then choose the ball that is lying in the best position for the next shot.*
once selected this ball is then played until the hole is completed with players, again as in foursomes, taking alternate shots using the same golf ball.
*Hint: This is not always a case of just choosing the longest drive
In Texas Scramble both players tee off, then one of these drives is chosen to be used for the next shot and both players play a shot from where the chosen drive ended up.
From these second shots, one is chosen and both players play a third shot from there, and so on until the ball is holed.
Each Pair returns one score for each hole
