More Golf Games


With my correspondence with Helen Reeves of Australia we agreed to exchange golf games as I had sent her my book of games that I had devised and she sent me her list. I will publish half of them in this review and update the rest in a later review. Some of these we are familiar with but there may be some of you new to golf have never played these games. It seems many of the women golfers out there are looking for some games to liven up their regular golf events. It does make for interesting outing on the golf course.

BINGO – BANGO – BONGO
FORMAT: Individual
NO. OF PLAYERS: 4
This is a fun game that allows players to be competitive regardless of the difference in handicaps.
Points are earned as follows:
• First ball on the green (Bingo) : 1 point
• Closest to the pin once everyone is on the green (Bango) : 1 point
• First ball in the hole (Bongo) : 1 point
The player who is furtherest away must play first. This can be played one hole at a time to determine the winner of the hole. Thus the overall winner is the one who has won most holes. Or players can tally their points at the end of the game to determine the overall winner.

CHAIRMAN
FORMAT: Individual
NO. OF PLAYERS: 3 OR 4
The first player to win a hole (untied) becomes the Chairman. If the Chairman wins the next hole, then the Chairman wins a point from the other players. Should the hole result in a tie, there are no points earned and the Chairman keeps the chair. If one of the other players wins a hole then that player is the new Chairman with no points won or lost for that hole.
Players earn points as follows:
• Winning a hole while being the Chairman.

TRIFECTA
FORMAT: Individual
NO. OF PLAYERS: 4
Each hole has a total of 12 points.
Players earn points as follows:
• Best score: 6 points
• Second best score: 4 points
• 3rd. best score: 2 points
• Worst score: 0 points

In case of a tie, then the points are added and divided. e.g. If players 1 & 2 tie, then 6+4=10 divided by 2. Each player earns 5 points.


NASSAU
FORMAT: Individual or Team
NO. OF PLAYERS: 2, 3 OR 4
In a Nassau there are three matches. The front 9 holes make up the first match, the back 9 holes make up the second match, and the 18 holes making the third match.
This can be played as a stroke or stableford

NINES
FORMAT: Individual
NO. OF PLAYERS: 3
Each hole has a total of 9 points. Players earn points as follows:
• Best score - 5 points
• Second best score - 3 points
• Worst score: - 1 point
In case of 2 players tying for the best score, first and second points are split evenly between the tied players. E.g. 5+3=8. The two players would get 4 points each. Similarly for 2 & 3 or if there is a three way tie, the 9poits would be divided by 3 to give each player 3 points.

ROUND ROBIN (6, 6 AND 6)
FORMAT: Team
NO. OF PLAYERS: 4
This game is played in foursomes in which the two player teams change partners after each 6 holes. The round is divided in three 6-hole matches that allow each player to play with a different partner in each of the 3 matches.

JACKPOTS
FORMAT: Individual or pairs
NO. OF PLAYERS: 2, 3 OR 4
The first 3 holes are each worth $1000, the next 3 holes are each worth $2000 and the next 3 holes are worth $3000. This pattern is repeated on the next nine holes. The winner of the hole gets the relevant dollar amount. If a hole is tied, then the next hole jackpots and continues to do so until there is a win. The subsequent hole then reverts back to its individual amount. The winner is the player with the most dollars.

GREENIES
FORMAT: Individual
NO. OF PLAYERS: 2, 3 OR 4
Greenies is a game played on par 3’s. The player whose tee shot is on the green closest to the pin wins the greenie. The point value of each greenie is determined prior to the round. Greenies can be played with or without carryover.

LAS VEGAS
FORMAT: Team
NO. OF PLAYERS: 4
This game is played by one twosome against another. On each hole, the team players arrange their two scores to make the lowest possible two digit number. e.g. On team A, one member has a 4, and the other has a 5. The two member team score for that hole would be 45. The points per hole are determined by the difference between the 2 teams scores. If team A scores 45 and team B scores 55, then the difference is 10 points. 55-45=10. Thus team A would win 10 points for the hole.

PAR 3 EVENT
FORMAT: Individual or teams
NO. OF PLAYERS: 2, 3 or 4
Every hole will be deemed a par 3. The tees will be moved to enable this to be done. Some of the fun is finding the new position of the tees. Each player will score as usual.
FAIRWAYS AND GREENS
FORMAT: Individual or teams
NO. OF PLYERS: 2, 3 or 4
A point is allocated every time a player lands in the fairway on their drive. Points are also earned for hitting the green in regulation. The winner is the one with the most points earned.

Thanks Helen and if anyone has a golf game they enjoy playing please send it to me by email or in the forum and I will publish them to share with other women golfers. More women are taking up golf so let’s share some fun games they can play as they are learning this great game.
