A fun 2 on 2 option that combines different scoring formats for odd and even numbered holes.
How To Play
Two player teams of equal skill are paired. Play out each hole as you normally would trying to shoot the lowest score possible.
How To Score
1 point is awarded on every hole.
On every odd hole (1, 3, 5, 7 etc) the team with the combined low score gets 1 point.
On every even hole (2, 4, 6, 8), the team with the lowest individual score gets the point..
How To Win
The team with the most cumulative points at the round wins!
Points can have a predetermined value (e.g. $1), or you could all wager something to throw into the “pot” in which the team with the most points just wins the “pot” (e.g. 3 nice golf balls).
