Is played in 2 teams of 2 players. All players play
their own ball for the entire hole (therefore 4
balls). The lowest of the 2 scores per team will
count as the team score. This format is also known
as 2-person Best Ball or Better Ball.
In a team of 2, players will hit alternate shots until
the hole is finished. Player 1 hits the tee shot, player
2 hits the next shot, player 1 the next and so on. On
the next hole, player 2 hits the tee shot, player 1 the
next, etc. In effect, one player will tee off on the even
holes and one player will tee off on the odd
numbered holes, which is why this format is also
known as Odds & Evens.

the Seniors' Championship. A hard copy, signed by

This is a stroke play competition played in teams of
three players, the handicap allowance, taken from the
team’s gross score at the end of the round, is 10% of
the team’s combined playing handicaps. E.g. total
gross score = 84 minus 10% of (12+18+22 = 52 10%
= 5.2) = 78.8. Record this as the net score.
All players tee off on all holes, a minimum of 5 tee
shots, drives, per player must be used as explained
below. The team then selects the drive to be used and
marks the position with a tee peg six inches from the
ball not nearer the hole. The other players then
retrieve their balls. All players then play with 300
mm (12 inches) of the tee peg, not nearer the hole, in
any order the ball being placed on the fairway, but
must be dropped from any other area, including
hazards. The above method of play is followed until
the green is reached.
On the green the same method applies. The ball
chosen is marked and all players putt from that spot
in any order. Each player marks his ball after putting.
Play continues from each position until the ball is
holed. If a player putts and misses and then
inadvertently knocks the ball into the hole, that score
The teams gross score for each hole should be
marked on the score card in the right hand side
“Points” column. The player who’s drive was used is
marked in the A, B and C players column as (1) to
(5) indicating how many of his drives have been
used. Click here to see a typical completed score

cards can qualify for entry. However unlike past
years there is no restriction on the number of cards
which can be taken into account (previously
maximum 10). Accordingly once the entry fee has

included in the competition and there is no need to
either note the card or signify the intention to submit
a competition card before teeing off as in the past.

stroke play competition and a score must eventually
