Instead of handicap strokes , each player is allocated one foot of string for every shot of his/her handicap. Each player can move the ball by measuring the distance moved and cutting that amount from the ball. You can use the string to remove your ball from hazards, get it out of a difficult lie or to hole out. If you like you can offer the option to gain one foot of string for each birdie scored. Remember to take your scissors!
Also known as Bingo, Bango, Bongo. A great format when the company is of mixed ability because final scores don't count. Instead points are awarded for firsts: first player to reach the green, player closest to the hole, first player to putt out - and any others you'd like to include. Great fun and a brilliant way of including everyone in the day.
Each hole is worth one 'skin' and whoever wins the hole gets the skin. If no-one wins the hole outright then the 'skin' is carried over so the next hole is worth 7 skins, and so on until someone sinks that pressure putt. Play off scratch or handicap as per singles matchplay.
When playing from off the green, a player shouts 'Flap' between hitting the ball and its first bounce. The player then has to hole out with the next shot to gain a unit. Failure to do so loses a unit. If a player calls a flap, opponents may shot 'double' before the ball makes its first bounce to double the win or loss.
Players have the opportunity to earn points based on three separate criteria on each hole. The first player to land a ball on the green earns a point (bingo), the player whose ball is closest to the pin after all balls are on the green wins a point (bango) and the first player to hole out wins a point (bongo). The winner is the player with the most points at the end of the round. To ensure competitive balance, players should rotate teeing off first on each hole.
As per Texas scramble but the worst shot is selected. Beware, as everyone has to hole out for a hole to be completed! Best played over nine holes or you'll never finish in daylight.

A combination of Betterball and Aggregate (funnily enough). On each hole a point is awarded for the betterball and one awarded for the combined. Good game for mixed handicap groupings and should be played off full difference.
