depending upon the difference on the front 9 the team doing better will allow the other team a few extra throws, ie two shanked drives and they get a new one. so its very similar to a mulligan but you can pick which member rethrows.

I sometimes get together with a group on Sunday mornings that I don't normally play with, and here's what they do to figure out doubles partners.....Hole 1 everyone throws their best driver,as if they were trying to park it. The closest to the pin, and the furthest from the pin are partners, then it goes back from there. It's interesting sometimes because it is a pride thing as to can get closest to the pin, and just a slight miscue <or a tree> can put you wayyyy back from the pin, and a normally really good player could be back, and paired with a guy who just has the hot hand for that day. You could try something like that with your friends, and maybe add in a mulligan here or there to keep it close.

Play WOLF. It will negate the differences in skill levels.

I agree that the best player and worst player should be paired together and the two middle players should be paired up. Maybe you could use a "best throw" system where the pair could decide whose throw to take but both partners have to take a "scored throw" on each hole (unless there is an ace).

I know that when my buddies and I play with 5 or 6 we include the best and worst score for each team on each hole. It is a good way to keep all the players interested because on any given hole their score could matter. It pits those of similar skill levels on each team against each other.

Best disc is where you play like singles and then just take the better of the two scores as the team score. No shared lies.
