How To Play

Two player teams of equal skill are paired.  Players play out each hole as they normally would, trying to shoot the lowest score possible.

How To Score

The combined team low score per hole is rewarded the points for that hole.  The points on each hole equals the yardage of that specific hole.

If Team A beats Team B on a hole that is 405 yards long, Team A is awarded 405 points.

How To Win

A “Nassua” scoring format is reccomended which would mean there are three ways to win:

(1) team with the most points on the front nine

(2) team with the most points on the back nine

(3) team with the most points on all 18 holes.

You could put a $2 Nassau bet on the round which means that each six hole match is worth $2 per player.
