  • Odds and Evens can be played in two ways, depending on the number of players.


            1. In a two-player team, both players alternate hitting one ball. The scores of the player with the lower handicap is counted on the odd-numbered holes, while the scores of the player with the higher handicap are counted on the even-numbered holes.
            2. In a four-player team, the players tee off and alternate shots. In this version, the one best score is recorded as the team score on odd holes, while the two best scores are combined to determine the team score on even holes.
