What is Greensomes?

Greensomes is a variation of Foursomes; both partners play from the teeing area and one of the two tee shots is selected. The partner whose tee shot was not selected then plays the next stroke and each subsequent stroke is made in alternating order until the ball is holed.


Handicap allowances?


The handicap allowances for Greensomes are 60% of the lowest Course Handicap, plus 40%of the highest Course Handicap.

For example, if you are a team made up of a 10 handicapper and 20 handicapper, your Greensomes handicap would be 14: (10 x0.6) + (20 x 0.4) = 6 + 8 = 14.
