Not so big on ambrose golf? Maybe Gentsomes is more your cup of tea.
Here is a golf format that is a little obscure because it’s not played as often as the more popular Ambrose format.
Similar to Ambrose, a Gentsomes team is made up of four players and all players play their own golf ball from the tee. The best ball is chosen and all players play from that spot; if it’s on the fairway, within one club-length, if it’s in the rough or a hazard, then the ball must be dropped in the same position.
But from this position, all players play out the hole with their own ball and record their Stableford score.
The best two of the four scores are recorded and totalled for the team score. the team with the highest number of points at the end of the round is the winner.
You can introduce variations requiring each player to contribute three (or more, or less) tee shots per round or maybe just choose one, or perhaps three best scores from the team.
