Split Sixes: A three-player game in which every hole is worth six points, which are split between the players in accordance to their score on the hole.
For a three-way tie, each player receives three points. The total points gained by each player are tallied up at the end of the round to decide the winner of the pre-determined payout. This three-player game is also known as nines or the 5-3-1 method as well. 9. The Dot Game (aka Garbage, Junk or Trash)
Surprised the 9 point game wasn’t mentioned. Played when you have 3 players. Play for dime, quarter, half-dollar or whatever makes you nervous. Each hole has 9 points.

You can play threesomes. One of you plays as a single, the other two play alternate shots with one ball, as in foursomes. You could play a Medal, Stableford or match play competition. For Medal and Stableford, the single player should receive his full handicap while the pair receives half their combined handicap.
This can get pretty hilarious if all three players “Shazam” Mary when it’s her turn. Another twist: Shazam yourself if you’re on the green and more than a flagstick-length from the cup. You win if you make the putt, break even if you two-putt, but if you three-putt here, you lose double. Really fun game for learning to putt with pressure.
