What Is A 6 6 6 Golf Tournament?

The format of a 6 6 6 golf tournament changes every 6 holes, and can be changed between scramble, best ball, alternate shot, and many other formats.

A 6 6 6 tournament is a special type of event that is typically only played in casual games and tournaments held by golf clubs for members. It is special because the format of the event changes every six holes, making three changes per round. This means that teams playing in a 6 6 6 tournament will be playing three separate matches within their round. It is a very entertaining way to play because it encourages team play and the three matches create lots of competitiveness. This format is usually played with teams of two in order to fit the requirements for several of the formats used within the event.

Types of Formats

A 6 6 6 tournament utilizes many of the most popular formats of casual golf games. The three formats that are typically used in this type of format are alternate shot, best ball, and scramble. Each of these formats encourage team play and are good ways for golfers to play a less stressful round.

Alternate shot is played by team members switching off what shot they hit for the entire hole. For example, partner #1 hits the tee shot and wherever it lands, partner #2 hits the second shot, and they alternate until the match is over.

Best ball is when both partners play their own ball and the best score between the two is used on the scorecard, and a scramble is when both partners hit the same shot then play the better of the two next and continue this until the hole is over. These formats can be played in any order and teams could swap them out for other formats if they are playing a casual round instead of a real tournament.
