Both players on a team tee off. Each hits the other's ball for their second shot. The pair then chooses the best ball after the two shots. From that point on it is alternate shot.
2) Las Vegas
Each team of two adds their net scores together, so if they both had fours the score is 44. Which number goes first is subject to a player’s score relative to par. If one of you got a bogey or better you would take the lower score first. For example, a 6 and 7 on a par 5 scores 67 for your team. If you are both above bogey (one over par), say on a par three, then you take the higher score first giving 76. The lowest total over the nine holes wins.
3) 2 Person Greensome
This format is a combination of 2-person scramble and alternate shot. On the first tee, both players hit a tee shot. The best shot is chosen and the other player will hit the 2nd shot. The team will continue to hit alternate shots until holed out.
4) Ace In The Hole
At the end of the first hole, the team decides which member’s score counts on that hole. At the end of the second hole, the score from one of the three remaining members is used. At the end of the third hole, the score from one of the two remaining members is used and on the fourth hole, the last member is the “Ace In The Hole” and his score is used. Repeat, not necessarily using the players’ scores in the same sequence.
5) Combo Tees (Alternate Shot)
New for 2023, MVGC has combo tees. Play the red/white combo tees listed on the scorecard. This format is played as a 2-person alternate shot format. On every tee, the game restarts and both players can decide which drive is being used.
6) Texas Scramble
Played in groups of three or four. All drive and then select the best shot and mark it. Everyone then hits the next shot from this point. Repeat procedure with each shot until you hole out.
7) 3 Club Game
Same as 2-person scramble but each player allowed only 3 clubs. Played with a partner. Both hit tee shot then select the best shot and mark it. Both then hit the next shot from this point. Repeat procedure with each shot until you hole out.
8) 2-Person Scramble
Played with a partner. Both drive and then select the best shot and mark it. Both then hit the next shot from this point. Repeat procedure with each shot until you hole out.
9) Elimination Scramble
A team of 4 tee off on a hole. The team decides which drive to take. That person is now eliminated from the hole until the other 3 players have had a chance to shoot. Next shot, only 3 players would shoot, picking the best one, and eliminating that player. Then 2 players, until you only have 1 remaining. After every player has had a shot selected, the elimination process restarts. The game also restarts after every hole.
Each player is given a set number of strokes to play their round of golf. The number of strokes is your current handicap plus the course rating. So if you were a 15 handicap you would get 84 strokes to play your round of golf (15 Handicap + 69 Course Rating). Once you have used up all of your strokes your round is over and the player places a tombstone (cross) with their name on it where their final shot has come to rest. If you still have strokes left after playing 18 holes then you would go back to hole number 1 and start again until all of your strokes have been used up. The player that places their tombstone the furthest away from the starting hole wins the tournament.
*2023 Season: 9 Hole event, handicap will be cut in half. All players wishing to participate in the season finale, will be required to tee off between 4:00-6:00pm. Prizes & food afterwards.
