Event Format Details
Four Player Red, White and Blue Best Shot: Each hole has only one set of tees (Red, White or Blue). Each team member plays from the same tee (as there is only one!). The color of the tee box does not necessarily correspond to its typically position. This makes hole length and difficulty quite variable (and fun).
Two Player Best Shot: Just like a traditional four player best shot, 'cept dere's only two of you's (this sentence only makes sense if you pronounce it like you're from Chicago).
Four Player Step Back Best Shot: One the first hole of the front nine, each team member plays from the Red tee (which are in their traditional position - up front). If the team makes a par or worse they remain on the Red tee for the next hole; if the team makes a birdie or better, they Step Back to the next longest tee (Gold at Lacoma). Birdie number two and Step Back again (to the White tee). If your team strings together a bunch of birdies, you'll quickly find yourself on the Blue tees. If your team manages a four-player-best-shot-bogey (or, shudder, worse), you get to Step Forward to the next easiest tee. Repeat this process for the rest of the front nine. On number ten, all players, again, start on the Red tee and repeat the process from the front nine.
Four Player Best Shot: A regular best shot.
