Groups of three players (3 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.
The person who hit the drive however is not eligible to attempt a shot from this spot.
The other 2 players then hits a second shot from the same spot.
From the 3rd shot forwards all 3 players get an attempt. As you move forward for each shot the best ball 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.
One score is thus recorded on each hole. This is the sum of the best shots used throughout the hole.
During the course of the round all player's drives must be used on 5 occasions and marked clearly on the scorecard.
- If your best ball is played from within a hazard then each of the player's balls must be played from within that hazard
- Your end score is adjusted for the handicap of the players in your team
- Team of 3 golfers the combined handicap of all players is calculated as 50% of average of all 3 players arrive at the team handicap. This is then subtracted from the Gross Score of the Team to arrive at the Net Score
