Golf Tournament Format

Ambrose tournament: Ambrose is an extremely social format played by either two, three or four player teams (four player teams for this golf day). Each player in the team tees off, after which the designated captain selects the best drive and marks the best ball’s position using a tee. All players then pick up their balls and fire their next shots from there, placing their ball within a club-length of the marker if it’s on the fairway, or dropping to within a club-length if it’s in the rough. The captain again chooses the best shot and this process continues until the ball is holed. The best ball score is recorded for the hole and the lowest total net score wins.

Ambrose tournaments are less competitive, but faster: Their setup is more approachable to players of all skill levels.

about australian rotary health

Australian Rotary Health is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia.

Australian Rotary Health provides funding towards research grants, fellowships and PhD scholarships focussed on finding preventative and curative solutions for mental illness in young Australians. From 2022, our funding focus will narrow to the mental health of children aged 0-12.

We also provide funding into a broad range of general health areas, provide scholarships for rural medical and nursing students, as well as Indigenous health students. Australian Rotary Health provides funding into areas of health that do not readily attract funding, and promotes findings to the community.

Australian Rotary Health is a project of the Rotary Districts of Australia and is supported by Rotary Clubs.  We have a broad vision to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
