How To Handicap Foursomes for Team Golf Tournament

I have found a formula to handicap foursomes that is being used by the West Palm Beach Ladies Golf Association. If they are using this formula then I am sure it will be a fair calculation for our group as well.

Here is how it works;

You take half of the lowest handicap member on your team, then you add the remaining 3 player's handicaps and divide them by 18 and total the two figures up to create your team handicap. So here is an example of how it would look:

John 8
Paul 16
George 22
Ringo 30

We take half of John's handicap which is 4. Then we add Paul, George and Ringo's handicaps which total 68 and divide by 18 which equals 3.7, so we round that up to 4. Add the two together and we have a team handicap of 8. Clear as mud? Don't worry if you find it hard to follow, I will be calculating the team handicaps for you anyway.
