  • Ghost is a three-player game in which two players form a team of two while the third player forms a team with an imaginary player, the “ghost”, who pars every hole.
  • Ghost is an option that can be used in any 4-player team game or tournament when the group has only three players.
  • In tournaments, it is very common not to have the exact number of players to form foursomes, and some groups only have three players. In such cases, a ghost is added to the threesomes. The ghost, or ghosts, in tournaments, are typically randomly selected from other players.
