Nassau (bet)

Does anyone have a ruling on this??? A bet is made for each match. Bets may be calculated with full handicap, no handicap, a percentage of handicap, or off of the lowest handicapper playing. Navigation menu

The Basics:


A Nassau is made up of three matches. The front nine holes make up the first match, the back nine the second, and the 18 hole total makes up the third. Match Play format is most commonly used. A bet is made for each match. Players may 'Press' the match to start another bet. If the Players accept the press, then a new bet begins at the said amount.

If automatic presses are pre-agreed upon, a new bet begins automatically at a defined point in the match. For instance, "2-down Autos" means when a player is two holes down, than another bet begins automatically on the next hole. In a scramble, each player tees off and the best drive is selected. The other team members will move their balls to the spot of the chosen drive and all players hit their second shot from this location.

The best second shot is selected and the procedure is repeated until the ball is holed out. Some Scramble formats require a minimum number of tee shots for each team member to be used. Wolf begins by establishing an order of play. Players will rotate that same order throughout the round: The player teeing off first on each hole is the Wolf.

The players take turns playing the Wolf based on the rotation of the established tee off order. After teeing off, the Wolf has the following options: For example, the Wolf tees off first.

Then, the second player in the rotation tees off. Based on the results of the second players drive, the Wolf has the option to select the second player as a partner or pass. Once the third player hits their tee shot, the second player is no longer eligible as a partner for the Wolf. Likewise, once the fourth player hits their drive, the third player is no longer eligible as a partner for the Wolf.

After the fourth player tees off, before the group leaves the tee box, the Wolf must select the fourth player as a partner for the hole, or play the hole alone against the other three players.

ChipChamp won one hole that occured after the press, which means he has 1 point for each bet.

However, this is not enough and NicheGolf is the winner of both bets on the front nine. Having just lost both bets, ChipChamp, TeeKing, and ClutchPutts make sure to drink a couple beers to calm their nerves. Not paying attention to the scores, NicheGolf goes up two holes on 10 and 11 and another auto press takes effect. With everyone realizing how easily this can get away from them, they decide to step their game up and start playing. TeeKing makes a long putt on 18 to win the hole.
