- 2 by 4 is played with handicaps.
- On holes 1, 9, 10, and 18, the four-player team counts the scores of all four net balls. On all other holes, the team counts only the two lowest net balls.
- A scorekeeper keeps track of each player’s actual score on each hole and uses the bottom line to record the team’s 2-ball and 4-ball net scores.
