Format for 6 player Golf Holiday...?

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys. Long time lurker, so firstly, thank you for all the great threads on here.

Wanted to ask some advice. Last year me and 7 other lads went on a golf holiday. We split ourselves into two teams of 4 and played three rounds across three days. The first and second day we mixed up pairings and played fourball. This allowed us to adjust handicaps as we all kept individual strokeplay scores as well, albeit the main focus was on the matchplay score with the winning pair scoring a point for their teams. This had us at 2-2 after two days. On the final day we played matchplay singles, with one team winning all four matches!

It was a great format, with 8 very competitive lads the team format meant there was lots of banter and allowed us to keep things fair, and fun, for those who didn't play much.

This year we are going again and all can't wait. However, due to various reasons we are two men down and now have 6. This has got us all a bit miffed as to how best we setup the competition element of the trip. We again have 3 days to play golf, but want to play 36 on a couple of the days (and potentially all 3 if need be).

Thus, how would you setup a 6 player competition over the 5/6 rounds? Teams of 3? Teams of 2? Individual comp?

Any thoughts and recommendations would be HUGELY appreciated as I am bit stumped at the moment. Again, bare in mind we are a competitive bunch and also have a couple of lads who don't play much so getting a gross score early to assess a suitable handicap mark is useful!

Thanks in advance guys. Look forward to hearing some thoughts.

Cheers

Jake

Ugh....  6 is tough.

I'd probably play 2 games.  One individual, and one a 3 man best ball.  With the individual game included, that will tend to keep everyone honest in each 3-some because they're competing for the individual honors which will be worth more than the team.

Stableford would probably work best and is easy to adjust on the fly....  You can always add skins too.

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks David. That's a good shout, and like you say, the individual comp will keep the 3 ball honest!! Appreciate your suggestion mate. All the best.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
