You have to pick a par 3 and play closest to the pin
Also select a par 5, and have the longest drive on that hole wins.

Go on a trip to NY..    (Dollar/Junk Fees).  This is an infraction, if committed  that guys gives the other 3 guys in his foursome one dollar.  Walk to the wrong cart, go in a bunker(stay in a bunker), hit the cart path (dollar for each bounce max 5$), go in water hazard, If your ball comes to rest on the cart path(you get 5 dollars from other 3), birdie you're paid 2 dollars by other 3, eagle you're paid 5 dollars by other 3.  Just and idea.  Make sure you bring 50 or 100 singles.  Its actually pretty fun passing dollars back and forth, as the round progresses.

Love all these ideas. Definitely will have ongoing games and side bets throughout the round (closest to the hole, 5 bucks if you get up and down from that, etc.)

One game that we always like to play with mixed handicaps is a 2 man game called "Hi Lo".  You play your own ball and use your regular score. For each hole your carts best/lo score is compared to the other cart and your teams worst/hi score is compared.  So on each hole you can earn 0, 1 or 2 points.  Cart with most points win, tie breakers are point on hardest hole (then 2nd, 3rd, etc).

One of my favorite side games is "Insta-cash"   The premise is that whoever is closest to the pin on a par 3 (on the green, of course) becomes the player.  If he makes par, everyone pays him a dollar on the spot.  If he makes birdie, every one pays him $2 immediately.  If he 3 putts, he pays everyone $3 on the spot.  Of course, anytime we had to play, we'd generally wad the dollar(s) up and throw them at the winner.  😄

A couple games we have played. 

Wolf is a fun game (you can look it up).

My buddies and I tend to drink a fair bit on the course and do "every 2 beers you drink, you get a stroke knocked off". You can modify that however - you get a mulligan, etc. 

There are challenge holes - like closest to the pin or longest drive - and the winner gets to negate another's shot. For instance, if my buddy gets closest to the pin and on the next hole I drill a drive, he can say, "negate" making me rehit. If I hit it in the fairway (or make it on the green, make the putt, whatever) he adds a stroke. If I miss-hit, I simply play that shot. 

There is best save out of a bunker, plus every time someone goes bunker to bunker (or in the same bunker) they owe a round at the end.
