  • Ransom is played in teams of two players.
  • The 18-hole round is divided into three 6-hole rounds.
  • In the first round, the combined score of the two players for a hole determines the team score for that hole.
  • In the second round, the teams play best ball, and the best score determines the winner for that round.
  • In the final round, the teams play alternate shots and play to win each hole.
  • The team scores are counted, and at the end of the game, the losing team owes the winning team a pre-determined amount of money.
