New Year, New Tournament Ideas

Thursday, January 3, 2019

Deciding to have a golf tournament is just the first step. But coming up with the appropriate format for your outing is the next step in assuring the success of your event. With it being a new year, why not try nontraditional ways to play golf? Your players have the natural desire to try something different. There are too many different ways of playing for you to hold the same golf tournament year after year. Find a format that appeals to both your experts as well as amateurs with some of our formats below:


The scramble format is great in tournaments to speed up play. In a scramble the foursome plays together and records one score for each hole. All four golfers tee off then they take the best drive and all hit their second shot from there, the pattern continues for the second shot and so on until the ball goes into the hole. This results in more birdies and pars and a quicker round of play.

Better Ball

The better ball format is very common in golf tournaments. Every golfer plays the hole with their own ball. After each player has finished the hole the lowest score by any golfer in the group is recorded.. This gives the group the opportunity to throw out the poor scores so at the end of the round they end up with one overall lowest score possible. It puts groups of golfers against each other instead of every golfer for themselves.


The shamble is very similar to scramble where all the golfers tee off and pick the best drive. From here all the golfers hit their second shot, unlike the scramble the golfers then play their own ball from the second shot on, like normal stroke play.
