Default FUNKY DUBS FORMATS?

I am hosting an XC-Tier dubs tourney this Fall. I host "specialty" events throughout the year such as Legacy Ace Run, Vibram Birdie Bash, Midrange Challenge, Millennium Challenge...a bunch of one-off weird stuff.

Therefore, I got this dubs tourney sanctioned as "XC" so we can do something funky with the format besides the normal Best Shot/Alternating/Best Score/Worst Shot that is always used.

So, I am wondering if anybody has great suggestions for 9/9 or 6/6/6 formats that are experimental or unique?

It will be two rounds. First round I will probably do typical 9/9 Best Shot-Best Score so everybody can get warmed up and have fun. But the second round, I wanna do something kinda wild that is not insanely confusing to follow...

Let's hear it!

Best Alternating Score: Both players drive and play from their partner's lie. They throw and then switch again unless someone is in the hole. Their team scores a deuce at that point and they're done. On longer holes, players keep switching until someone holes out. Whichever sequence to the basket is a better score is the team's score. Basically, it's Alternate Shot but each team has two chances to get a good score on a hole.

Houck's modification of that is players only switch for their second toss. Then the team decides which lie to play from and they play Best Shot from there until in the hole.

It's not doubles, but it's still fun. Recently I played triples with some friends and we decided to make it so that after all 3 people on each team had thrown, the team that threw got to toss out what they thought was the worse throw. From there, the opposing team picked which of the remaining two throws the team that just threw had to take. You had to pick the shot before leaving the throw location. In the case of an ace or putting, once the disc was in, it's good.

Alternate-Best Score...

Player A and B both tee off.
Player A upshot from Player B's Drive. Player B upshots form Player A's Drive
Player A putts from Player B's upshot. Player B putts from player A's upshot
Players continue alternating until they are considered Holed Out(made the putt).
Team takes the Best Score of the two.

Both Players always Tee off, even if one player putted out both shots on the previous hole.


Looks like I got beat to the punch while I was typing this up...

Tailgate doubles.

On your drive, you must throw before your partner's disc hits the ground. Makes it VERY important to not hit the first tree off the pad.

You better hope your partner doesn't like throwing rollers in this format.

Blind shot doubles one team mate has to throw blind folded for the duration of each hole(drive, approach, putt). Teams choose each hole who will be blindfolded with each team mate having to throw half the holes blindfolded. Players can have practice run ups without the blindfold. But when the disc leaves thier hand the blindfold must be on. Both team mates keep track of their scores with a notation for holes played blindfolded. This is otherwise operated like best shot doubles. You can pitch it as "can you throw better than a blind man?" Or something like that.
