Rules: Mixed Greensome – in greensomes both players tee off and then choose which ball to play from there. The player whose drive or tee shot is not chosen plays the second shot, and they then play alternate shots from there until the ball is holed out. On the next hole, both players again tee off and the process is repeated. There is nothing to stop the same player’s drive being selected all the way round.

60% of lower handicap and 40% of higher handicap









The Rose Bowl was presented in 1982 by Bobby and Lorna Neilson when for the first time in history of the club that husband and wife had been captain of their different section.  Bobby and Lorna have enjoyed mixed foursomes competitions over many yearsand itwas thought a greensome competition  would encourage more people to play.  The Rose Bowl was given to reflect the family’s love of Carradale.
