Definition: Greensomes is a competition format that is a variation of foursomes (2-person teams, each playing one ball). In Greensomes, both players on a team tee off, the best of the two tee balls is selected and that ball is then played alternate-shot until holed. 

In regular foursomes, the 2-person team would play alternate shot for the full hole, i.e., only one tee ball would be hit. 

Greensomes is essentially a 2-person scramble off the tee, then alternate-shot into the hole.
