Definition: Greensomes is a golf tournament format, or a competition format that groups (Flight) of four golfers can play, using 2-person teams.



In Greensomes, both players on a team tee off, the best of the two tee-balls is selected and that ball is then played alternate shot until holed.



Example, So: Player A and Player B are a Greensomes team. They both hit drives from the teeing ground. They compare the results and decide that Player A's drive is best. So Player B picks up his ball (Tee-Shot), & plays the team's second shot using Player A's drive. Player A then plays the third shot, and so on, the players alternating until the ball is holed. (The player whose drive is not used hits the second shot.). The same procedure is adopted for every hole & the team with the lowest score wins, (Net score for ‘IGC Autumn Fall Team Golf Tournament – 2014’).





Remember, it’s always the alternate shot method or procedure. Example: Player A Tee-Shot is selected & Player B hits second shot in the hazard. Team decides to take a penalty drop & now hit fourth shot. Subsequently, Player A will hit the fourth shot since the last shot was played by Player B.
