The Captains Choice format is a form of team competition in golf. All members of the team (teams are set at 4 players) tee off. Then one of these drives is chosen to be used for the next shot and all members of the team place their balls where the chosen drive ended up, and all the team play a second shot from this spot. From these second shots, one is chosen and all play a third shot for there – and so on until the ball is holed. Each team returns one score for each hole and the team with the lowest score for the round wins. There is no handicap applied to scores. Teams of less than 4 players will be assigned additional players to ensure all teams are 4 players. Male players shall play from the white tees, except that any male players 65 or older may play from the Gold tees. Female players shall play from the forward tees.
