Groups of four players (4 person ambrose) work as a team. Each player hits off the tee, the best shot is selected and all other players pick up their ball and place it, within one handspan, alongside the best ball. Each person then hits a second shot from the same spot. The best shot is again selected. This continues until the ball is in the hole. On the putting green the best ball is marked and the other balls are played from this position. Each player must have 3 drives each selected.
One score is thus recorded on each hole. This is the sum of the best shots used throughout the hole.
Handicaps are 50% of average of all 4 players.
