Playing Format 9-holes: Alternate Shot

  • Players A and B partner one another on an alternate shot team, or side. They decide among themselves who tees off first on the the first hole. Let’s say they decide on Player A to hit the opening tee ball. So on the first hole, A hits the tee shot. They walk to the ball, and Player B hits the second shot. The third stroke is played by Player A. Then Player B hits the fourth. They alternate hitting shots until the ball is in the hole.
  • They also alternate hitting tee shots, so since in our example Player A hit the drive on the first hole, on the second hole Player B tees off. And so on throughout the round.
Who tees off first on your starting hole?
  • That’s up to the partners. But it’s the biggest tactical decision partners in alternate shot have to make.
  • The golfer who tees off on No. 1 is also going to tee off on Nos. 3, 5, 7 and so on – all the odd-numbered holes.
  • And the golfer who tees off on No. 2 will also tee off on Nos. 4, 6 and so on – all the even-numbered holes.
  • So check the scorecard. Do the par-5s and tough driving holes fall disproportionately on the even-numbered holes?
  • Or the odd? Is one partner clearly a better driver of the golf ball than the other? You want that golfer best-matched to the longer, tougher driving holes.
  • Likewise, if one partner is clearly a better short- and mid-iron player than the other, take into account on which holes (odd or even) the par-3 holes mostly fall. Or simply make sure a poor driver doesn’t get stuck with most of the tougher driving holes.
Maximum score per hole: 10
If you and your partner have reached a score of 10 and have not holed-out please pick up your ball and mark a 10 for that holes score.
