Played it many, many times including the Morgan Cup in ‘18 with my pal @PatsFan . Also play this annually at my my home club’s annual Ryder Cup event the first week of October plus T a few other team Ryder Cup events. Really like this format....lots of fun.
Our Club has a Ryder Cup over two days every year and its a lot of fun. We have had alternate shot at other events as well. Alternate shot is a challenge because you want to do well for your partner. Great feeling when you put your partner in a good position. Scrambles and shambles are without a doubt less stressful.
I play it a few times a year one of the club matchplay competitions is foursomes, its always fun and depending how the game goes you might not hit a putt for several holes. You have to expect that you won't be in your normal rhythm and afterwards I always want to play more golf as you have only hit half your normal shots.
I've played it many times. It's usually part of member/member tournaments I used to play. It was for 6 holes out of 18 or 9 holes out of 36. Alternate shot and aggregate are tough formats. I shanked my shot from a hanging lie in the fairway to under a pine tree playing alternate shot once. My partner was not a happy camper
I get to play this format every year. It's alot of fun but definitely takes alot of concertation since you can't really get into a groove. You really have to feed and amp up your team to get momentum going since you aren't hitting as many shots. I really enjoy it though from time to time.
I play it every year in our local Ryder Cup. I've played it in at least two THP events. Alt shot is honestly my favorite format. The key is to just have fun. Your partner is going to leave you in a tough spot. You are going to leave your partner in a tough spot. If you just roll with it, have fun, and enjoy the 'wild' nature of alt shot, it really turns out to be a lot of fun with quite a few laughs.
