We have the last off the tee carrying the trash bag (or so called 'briefcase'). That way any practice shots or mulligans have a price. We give the scorekeeper exemption as well as having a 'three carry' rule with a similar exemption.
I found that the nets that the turkeys come in are the best bags to have - light weight and retains a minimum of spitoonage of the trash getting packed out.
