Re: In need of a game for a family "tournament"
Have each person start out with a bank. For the sake of simplicity, you get 100 chips.
On each shot, a player can lay odds with the shooter. So if you are in the bunker, I could say "I'll give you 12/1 that you can't get it inside 8 feet". Then you do some quick negotiations on the line, and bam.
On the tee of a hole you can lay 5/1 that someone won't score a dbl bogey or better, etc.
Most chips at end win.
I find this is the best format to play with a wide spectrum of golfers.
