"The Good and the Bad" Game for 4 Players

This is a great golf game for 4 players as it keeps everyone involved in each hole plus offers more avenues for betting or scoring.

Divide your foursome into two teams of equal skill using golf handicaps or giving strokes if necessary.

Team A and Team B.
Each hole in the round is worth a total of 2 points, one point for the "Good" and one point for the "Bad". Each player plays their own golf ball and keeps their score for the hole. At the end of the hole, the best score from team A is put against the best score for team B. The same is done for the other players, the worse score from team A is paired against the worst score from team B. The winning team of the best scores gets a point and the winning team of the worse scores get a point. Ties are carried over. For example if the two best scores are tied, the points for the "Good" on the next hole are now worth two.

Examples of how points are given:
Team A: One player shoots a 4, other shoots a 6
Team B: One player shoots a 5, the other shoots a 7
In this case Team A wins the Good and the Bad -
the 4 beats the 5 and the 6 beats the 7.

Team A: One shoots a 4 the other shoots a 6
Team B: One shoots a 5 the other shoots a 5
Team A wins the Good - 4 beats a 5, Team B wins the Bad - 5 beats a 6

Team A: One shoots a 4 the other shoots a 5
Team B: One shoots a 4 the other shoots a 4
Since Team A and B each shot a 4 as the best score, the "Good" point is carried over to the next whole, team B wins the "Bad" 4 beats a 5.
