Iíve played in 16+ somes, but usually that is one club or alternate shot or something so itís quick. Sucks playing in a big group like that and getting held up by a 4 some.

We play a lot of 5s and 6s early and lat in the year when tee times get messed up with late sunrises and frost delays. Donít do anything different and still get around in under 4 hours. Not really a big deal, but the games may change a bit.

I have played in a shootout that starts with 10 teams of two, 20 guys total on the first hole. Of course teams get eliminated each hole so it doesn’t remain that large of a group for long.

Played in several like that. Always alternate shot format, however. First hole usually takes at least 40 minutes. Can't imagine what it would be like if played best-ball ...

At my club SLOW PLAY is not TOLERATED anymore. No more than a foursome is allowed to play together, no exceptions. If you fall behind the group in front of you, the Marshall will have you pick up your balls, and catch up with the group in front of you. If you fall behind again, you are booted off the course and not allowed to play again for 1 week.

Yeah it is a tough club. Younger members got sick and tired of 5 and 6 hour rounds. About two years ago, the two old fossils died off that occupied the club's President and Treasury positions. Once they were gone, the rules changed. We did loose about 2 dozen members in protest. more old fossils that cannot keep up. However we gained at least another 50 members now that rounds are no longer than 4 hours.

Our club and many clubs work like the goberment. Example 30 years ago you would have been laughed of the face of the planet suggesting to legalize marijuana. Well today after 30 years of programming youth in our schools telling them that smoking ganja is OK, all that was left was waiting for the Baby Boomers to die off and change the rules. God help us when the snowflake Millennials are in power.

Used to play a real big money game with anywhere from 4-12 players. First thing in the spring, and/or last thing in the fall. Everyone had their own cart, so there was not driving back and forth dropping off a player with his clubs, etc, and there were enough eyes to make sure funny business wasn't going on.

Had some great old gamblers, state open winners, junior and senior champs, and little old me. It was a cheap education.

fun times, long forgotten, and probably never again initiated.

Thanks for the mammaries

Just got back from Thailand and played in a 9-some.  Played with the owner of the course, so obviously no problems regarding slow play.  It did get to be a bit too much with balls flying everywhere and the group was split after 9 holes.  It was probably a good thing, as I don't know if we would have finished before dark it we didn't.

I've played in an 8 man scramble before, two 4 man teams to keep groups from cheating. It was awful. I also played as an 8-some for a 9 hole bachelor party outing. A ranger came by and told us it was an embarrassment to see that on the course, one of my buddies replied that it was embarrassing to see a course empty enough on a Saturday afternoon that it was no issue, heck we caught people.

But the most ever for me was this past weekend, 12 deep at The Preserve at Bandon Dunes. Such a cool little course, guys all over the place.

6 is the biggest for me, but that was combining 2 groups of 3 for the last 5 holes on an empty course. Saw a group of 7 get sent off the first tee at my old club middle of a Sunday. Couldn't believe it actually considering there were groups waiting to tee off behind them,

Heard that at one time about 50 players played sudden death at a lighted par 3 in Pensacola.  They would all throw into a hat and tee off. Last man standing would win it all.  One player mentioned that it was rub of the green when your ball was going right at the hole, only to hit another ball and bounce your ball and maybe the other off the green. They did not replace the ball at rest on the green either, since so many balls might be on the green you wouldn't know who's ball your ball hit. No stymies, and it took awhile to putt out the first hole. Also heard the field was reduced quickly. Maybe someone, and I believe a few are now on tour, on this board was there?  Chime in!

Today I played 9 holes. There were 6 of us walking, and no one else on the course, except a 3some a few holes ahead. It only took 2 hours.
