Tournament Tee Time Formats
Tournaments in 18Birdies offer a choice of two different tee time formats: sequential and shotgun.
Sequential Tee Times Format
- Tournament format that sends players off in traditional tee times.
- Most often used for smaller tournament or league groups, usually 50 players or less.
- There will be a considerable gap between the first group and the last group as the round is finished.
- Ideal for smaller tournaments and weekly/monthly league play.

- Ideal for larger tournament groups (72 or more).
