2021 VGA 4 ball foursome competition. Played March 3rd, 2021

At the Aguila Golf course on March 3rd, 2021, we played a 4 man team game with the 1st place team pictured below. The teams were paired by choosing an A, B, C, D player based on their current golf handicap index. The top 3 scores for each hole were used to determine the team’s handicapped score for that hole. Scores were totaled for 18 holes to determine the team’s total score. Used this format to replace the usual 4-ball contest. Great fun for all involved.
