Doubles Formats

18 Holes in the AM

Best Score (18 holes in the trees)

Quote:
In Best Score (also known as Best Disc), each player plays the hole as they would while playing singles; there are no shared lies. The team score is the best score on the hole by one of its players.
· The player who is away will always throw first, with this exception: If both players are lying the same number of throws, the team may choose which player throws first.
· A player must pick up once it is impossible for him to better the team's score. The team incurs a warning for the first violation, and a penalty throw for subsequent violations.
· In case of injury or disqualification, one partner may play alone.

27 Holes in the PM

Best Disc (Front 9 [holes 1-9])

Quote:
Best Shot is by far the most popular doubles format. Both players throw from each lie (starting with the tee shot), and then the team chooses which of the resulting lies to continue play from, until the hole is completed.
· A team may take a reasonable amount of time to pick which lie they want before the 30-second play clock starts.
· A lie that is picked up without being marked is gone forever; the team must throw from the other lie. If the second lie is picked up, it must be replaced in accordance with PDGA rules. All lies must be marked with a Mini.
· If the first player throws from the wrong lie, the second player may still throw from the correct lie.
· In case of injury or disqualification, one partner may play alone, throwing one shot at each lie (essentially playing singles).
Combined Score (Back 9 [holes 10-18])

Quote:
Each player throws their own disc, and the players’ scores are added together to make their team score. (Example: Player one has a 3, and Player two has a 4; Combined Score is 7)
· Using this format, both players have to play steady and consistent to post a great score. If both have birdies, you might have gained a stroke on another team, but if both players have bogies or worse, then your team might have fallen from 1st place to 5th place really fast.
· The player who is away will always throw first, with this exception: If both players are lying the same number of throws, the team may choose which player throws first.
· In case of injury or disqualification, one partner may play alone. The lone player has to throw two discs, from the tee-box, and must keep each disc’s following throws and scores separate.
Alternate Shot (Open 9 [holes 19-27])

Quote:
In Alternate Shot, only one sequence of throws is made on each hole. The team selects a player to throw the tee shot at the beginning of the round. The other player then throws from the subsequent lie, and play alternates in that fashion until the round is completed. Alternate Shot is closer to a singles format, where one partner can't bail the other out. If you miss a short putt, chances are good that you'll be driving the next hole.
· If the wrong player on a team throws, another team must call it immediately, like a foot fault. The team receives a warning, and the correct player throws. Subsequent violations incur a one-throw penalty.
· For any violation that requires a re-throw (stance violation, provisional throw), the same player throws.
