We are fortunate to have a home course with 36 holes so we have been splitting the league up for several years; each team starts on one course one week and the other the following week and our AMAZING league managers (and the course folks) have done a very good job at rotating everyone and the opponents so the play is balanced between courses throughout the season.  We played twosomes the first two weeks after opening this year for handicap establishment and it was shaping up to be interesting having to play that way by either splitting up teams to play with your opponent or having to correlate cards between teams after the round for points.  I am sure the announcement that the course is going back to foursomes next week is a relief to our managers.  Like you say, there is a balance and you just have to hope that most people can agree on what that balance point is.


We are 36 holes as well, and do the weekly rotation also. 

I guess we are in the minority of most leagues.  Ours is individual stroke play with weekly individual layouts and a season long Fed Ex Cup  style standings.  We have a 32 person field match play payoffs at the end.  

So when split play between the nines, we have to have payouts for each side and award points for each side. 

It worked ok last year except the guys who tend to place 1st or 2nd each week complained about smaller payouts when we didn't have both courses filled.  

But overall everyone seems to like the individual play. Many of them play in a team league on another night at another local course.

The section at 29.53 Not round-non conforming golf balls was really interesting.  Wonder if the pro's who are provided balls are hand picked and measured to make sure they are round and conform?
