At least in Tough shot - If you ace or "fairway ace" the hole is over!

This is also the standard around here---I haven't heard of an ace pot being split between partners. I guess it's considered a side-bet and, as such, an individual accomplishment. That, and the partner is still on a team with an improved chance at cashing, with that "1" on the scorecard.

Hitting an ace has nothing to do with your partner, splitting a 300$ pot seems outlandish to me when it was your shot, your ace. Your partner should be happy for you, not asking for money haha.

I don't think it's right or wrong, either way---just local tradition.

I like to throw second all the time. If my partner puts his shot (our first) within auto-putting range, I'm running the basket. He's freed me up to run for the ace, so absolutely I'm throwing some money at him if I hit it.

I disagree that it has nothing to do with a partner. You can be a lot more aggressive with a drive when you have a partner who has either already put a good drive out there or is waiting in the wings to throw a good/safe shot should you fail in some way. I've gotten more aces in doubles play than singles, and almost all of them were thrown with the confidence that if I missed and blew by the basket, we were still in position to get the deuce.

I gladly share any ace pots I win in doubles with my partner, whether he wants it or not. We're a team for every single shot we throw.

I'm part of the 5/1 club and with doubles aces I've ALWAYS done a 70/30 split (if partner is equal or better player) and 60/40 if not - mostly for the reasons stated here and in other posts....you can be more relaxed /aggressive (whatever the situation calls for) if your partner is already in position for a 2.

I also play 5/1. Got an ace in doubles this past weekend and my partner, also part of the 5/1 club, tried to pay me $5 along like the guys on the other team in the group. Told him to keep it and take $5 from one of the other guys instead.

He really liked my way better...especially when I nailed another one in the second round.
