Fun for the Whole Family

Join us during the afternoon at the 19th hole for a game of mini-golf at Badlands and Boulders ($16 per person), book a luncheon or a top swing suite and have some 'virtual' fun.  Free jumping castles will keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a coffee and watch the golf.

How Does Ambrose Golf Work?

Ambrose is an extremely social format played by groups of two or four players working as a team. Each player hits off the tee, the best shot is selected and all other players pick up their ball and place it, within one handspan, alongside the best ball. Each person then hits a second shot from the same spot. The best shot is again selected. This continues until the ball is in the hole. On the putting green the best ball is marked and the other balls are played from this position.

One score is thus recorded on each hole. This is the sum of the best shots used throughout the hole.

There is often one additional requirement: During the course of the round, all player's drives must be used on a set number of occasions. Generally, this is three. So if you have a beginner golfer in your group it may be prudent to use their drives early in the round so as to not put pressure on them as the rounds conclude.

Why Is It Called 'Ambrose'?

Ambrose is the last name of a Michigan couple who introduced a type of golf scramble to locals while living in Australia where it became popularised as the 'Ambrose golf' format. The Ambrose scramble format is fairly straightforward. Everyone on the team - usually two, three or four players - tees off.
