In addition to the individually played classic game formats (introduced in part one of this series) GameBook also offers a variety of game formats for teams. While golf is an individual sport – without a question – golf is also very social. And every once in a while it’s good to have somebody else to blame than yourself and the equipment. So get your friends together and team up to face your opponents!
Team formats on GameBook
Scramble is an all-time favorite for team golf outings. Each player in a group tees off on a hole. After each shot, the best shot is selected and all players play the next shot from that spot, until the ball is holed. One team score is recorded. With GameBook, you can play scramble with groups of two, three or four players. If you’re going to play with a four-some, try a two-person scramble match.
Better Ball is defitenetely one of the most popular team games in golf. It is a two-person Best Ball (also known as Four Ball), where each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole the better score serves as the team score. If you’re going to play with a four-some, try a Better Ball match!
In Best Ball, each player plays his or her own ball throughout the round, and on each hole 1 or 2 best scores serve as the team score. With GameBook, you can play Best Ball with groups of three or four players.
Ready to rumble? GameBook has a four-person Irish Rumble available. It is a Best Ball format played with Stableford points where the best single score is recorded for the first six holes (1-6); the best two scores are recorded for the next six holes (7-12); the best three scores are recorded on the next five holes (13-17); and on the last hole (18), all four scores are recorded for the team. GameBook calculates scoring for you automatically so you can try it out without being a math genius!
