About the competition
Following two weeks of coaching and practice, teams will play in a competition over 4 weeks, which will culminate in a Grand Final gala day.
All team members will play alongside each other each week, working together to earn points for their team so they can climb the competition ladder.
Each week teams will play four holes together using the Ambrose format of play. In Ambrose golf, all team members tee off, with the team choosing the position of the ‘best tee shot’ for everyone to take their next shot. This process is repeated until the team gets the ball in the hole.
If you hit the best shot of your team, your ball position is used by everyone for their next shot. If you hit a bad shot, it doesn’t matter because everyone will take their next shot from where your team’s best positioned ball is.
Teams will accrue points based on how many shots it takes the team to get the ball into the hole.
Each week the team that finishes with the most points (first place) will get the most ladder points and vice versa.
Grand Final Gala Day
The final round of play will see teams compete for the Teen Golf Premiership over six holes.
At the conclusion of the Grand Final an end of season presentation will be held, with team and individual awards handed out.
