One player becomes the Kangaroo picked by lot on the first tee, and Kangaroo then changes on successive holes through to number 16. To determine who will be the Kangaroo on Holes 17 and 18, lots are drawn again. Every player gets to be the Kangaroo 4 times (in a foursome). The Kangaroo may pick a partner after the other players have driven off the tee, but prior to the Kangaroo hitting. One point is allocated per hole and is allocated to each player of the winning pair. In the event of a drawn hole, then the next hole jackpots to 2 points and so on. The Kangaroo may choose to go alone. This then means that the points are doubled for the Kangaroo if she wins or for each of the others if they win. Points are tabulated for all players after each hole. Full handicap is also used.
(This game is a variation of Wolf)
