I'm taking a golf trip soon with some friends. We have a foursome each day. No one except me has an actual handicap and if they did, the range of handicap from low to high is probably from 10 - 25. Looking for suggestions on fun games we can play (aside from just stroke or match with handicaps) that don't overly favor the better handicaps. Example...Wolf is fun, but sometimes the hacker won't even get picked when he pipes one down the middle, and therefore takes the fun out of the game. Looking for some different ideas and suggestions.

    My regular Sunday foursome's handicaps are approx. 7, 10, 15, 18. We play 2 left vs 2 right balls off the tee quite a bit. Each hole is a new bet/match with no carryovers & if someone is struggling on a given day, you don't get saddled with a partner that's in his pocket for most of the round.

    3 different bets .. 20 a man per bet or 5 per bet . .so $15 to $60



    Game one, net stableford points, don't use negatives for doubles or more .. go with 0, 1, 2 for par, 3, 4, 5

    2. blind draw 2 man net better ball, draw the names after the round .. full caps

    3. half shot skins



    No matter your level you're competing in one of the games

    A game we play is Bingo-Bango-Bongo



    This awards up to 3 points per hole for:

    -First on the green (theoretically a disadvantage to longer hitters)

    -Closest to the pin

    -First in the hole

    Other variations include: longest putt or lowest score.



    You can play individually or with teams.

    We play this quite a bit and it seems like everybody usually wins something.

    We also switch partners every 6 holes for a small bet. That way everybody gets a chance to partner up and it turns out pretty fair.

    Have any of you guys played "Honest John"? That can be a fun game too for a foursome. The only problem is if you shoot much better or much worse than your average it ends up costing you a few bucks.
