If one scores 3 and the other 5, the team score is 35 and so on, the lower of the two scores always being placed first. This scoring system clearly allows for some big margins to open up. It would only need the players from the first team to miss short putts and both take 5, and the margin would become As a minor concession to the more cautious gambler, if one member of a team hits double figures the normal placement of the scores is reversed, so that for example if the players shoot 4 and 10, their score is , not At a dollar a point, you can see how losses can mount alarmingly as the game progresses, but of course, you can agree to play for quarters, dimes, nickels or anything else a point as you wish.
This is a game for four individuals who take turns to be the Wolf for a hole. This order of play is determined on the first tee box and remains throughout the round, but the Wolf is always the last to hit their tee ball. The incentive to do this is that by winning the hole a Lone Wolf 1 vs. If the Wolf and his partner lose the hole, the other team gets 3 points each. If any other player beats a Lone Wolf, each player receives a point except the Lone Wolf.
The object of the game is to score the most points during the round, gambling on the outcome as desired. And the best way to do this, of course, is to win holes as a Lone Wolf when you have the opportunity. It takes confidence and a cool nerve to do this, but fans of the game cite the opportunity to develop these qualities as a great reason for playing it.
This only works with four players but it is a lot of fun as it keeps you invested in every hole, especially those middle six where some golfers can tune out. Bets can be placed on the outcome of each match and on the aggregate of the three. Each player Is aiming to be on the winning side in at least two of the three matches.
If you lose all three matches, it can usually get expensive! This is an imaginative game that is great for allowing weaker players and even beginners an opportunity to take points and dollars from more experienced competitors. With so many point-scoring opportunities, the game can generate considerable enthusiasm. But more introverted players should be reassured that it is not necessary, or at more exclusive clubs even permissible, to shout out the words themselves.
The great thing about this game is that the total score on a hole is irrelevant to the winning of points. This helps players with a weaker tee to the green game can still compete. If their final shot to the green is just a short chip shot, they may still have a good chance of being closest to the pin and scoring Bango.
Likewise, any player may from time to time see a longish putt drop in and score Bongo. For this reason, the game is a popular choice for association and society days, but it can also be played alongside more conventional stroke and match play formats if desired. The rules for this game are simple which is nice because some of the most popular ones require a lot of math and post-round calculations.
As you can tell, most of these betting methods are geared toward two or four players. This is not so much a game in its own right, but a way of describing a number of minor or side bets which can be added to any conventional golfing contest or to all the other games.
The dot game is a way to keep track of all the action Iike a bookie in Vegas. These may be simple and obvious, such as points or dollars won for birdie, eagle, longest drive, sand saves, or closest to the pin on par 3 holes. Points can also be lost for bogey, double bogey, out of bounds, etc. But many more bets have been devised, and perhaps made more appealing by the creative and intriguing names by which they are known.
Another fun way to keep your betting interesting is the quota system. This system features a set amount of money you can win before heading to the first box. I love this game because it rewards consistent play with pars and really rewards if you make birdies or even an eagle. Plus, the rules are simple! Are you looking for a betting game that emphasizes putting more than the total score? To make it interesting, you can also create a progression system so three putts later in the round cost more money.
If you keep doubling, this can add up! Also, make sure the pot amounts and rules are clear before teeing off so everyone is on the same page. If you have a regular foursome, it can make gambling and golfing even more fun. An almost infinite variety of forfeits have also been devised to penalize other errors such as hitting out of bounds, hitting houses and even air shots.
As with every game mentioned, make sure the rules and payouts are clear for any newcomers as well. This betting system is ideal for hardcore gamblers who are ready to win big or lose big. Overall, this is a great game for golfers who have a lot of ups and downs and also those who just love gambling on the links.
When you break it down, it gets pretty fun too. Think about it like this; if you make back-to-back birdies without banking, you will have earned the equivalent of making 18 bogeys earned at 5 points each.

But in case you get the impression that all golfers are inveterate gamblers, addicted to risking large sums on essentially random events, remember that many of these games are in reality no more than imaginative scoring systems. The best of them allows weaker players to enjoy an element of competition and level the playing field in ways which the conventional handicapping system does not always achieve.
And of course, there is no need for any of these games to be played for high stakes. You can bet a sleeve of balls, drinks, mildly embarrassing forfeits or there may be no bets at all if the players prefer. All that really matters is that all participants are comfortable with both the game and the stakes they are playing for.

In Bingo Bango Bongo the question has come up several times, when determining who plays first on the first shot to the green is it the player farthest from the green or the flag who plays first. My groups always go with farthest from the flag.
I think everyone should play bingo Bango bongo and also play ready golf put an extra 54 to each green fee for the prize and watch those 18 hole rounds finish up in 3 hours Cheers The breeze. We play a golf game in Thailand which can be played with 4 or 5 players. For example, two players tie for the best score on a hole. Want to win more money on the course?
You have to hit more consistent shots. Try our video lesson series How to Play Consistent Golf. If the front, back and 18 are equal in the amount wagered, that means a golfer or team could conceivably win the first 10 holes, and halve all but two of the remaining and win only a third of the amount wagered.
Hardly fair. With a closeout, the hole match is worth a set amount and once it's decided, a second match on the remaining holes begins for half the original amount. It reduces the odds of a lackluster payout for really solid play. But the real beauty of this game is that it's simple to keep track of the match.
Typical scoring for a mid-handicap group would be 1 point for a bogey, 2 points for a par, 4 for a birdie and 8 for an eagle points can be adjusted in any way. The player with the most points above their quota wins a predetermined pot. If no one finishes above their quota, you can roll the pot into the next round or decide it by some kind of tiebreaker. I've always liked this game because pars and birdies are worth so much more to average golfers than just being one shot better than a bogey.
This is a great game for mid-to-high handicappers because it keeps everyone involved much deeper into the round, especially if a player or two had a couple of "blow-up" holes along the way. You have to putt them out. And any time a player three-putts or worse the ball has to be on the green for the first putt , a specific amount is added to a pot.
That money keeps accruing during the round and the last person to three-putt has to pay the other players the amount in the pot. There are many variations of this game including a progressive version where the pot amount starts at a dime and doubles each time someone three-putts. Another version makes the person with the most three-putts pay. It's recommended to play this game when the course isn't crowded because it can slow things down. However, it's a great game to learn how to make short putts and not take other putts for granted.
Essentially, any time a player follows up a double bogey or worse with a par or better on the next hole, they win a point dollar value determined in advance by your group. Any time a player makes back-to-back double bogeys or worse, they lose a point.
A typical point distribution would be 5 for a bogey, 15 for a par, 30 for a birdie and 60 for an eagle better groups can start with par as the first point-eligible score. After earning points on a hole, the player has the option of banking the amount or "letting it ride," meaning the point total can still grow on subsequent holes.
The point totals double for every hole that they aren't banked. So a bogey on a second consecutive hole would now be worth 10 and a par would be worth 30 and so on. However, if a player elects to let his or her points ride and a double bogey or worse is made, the player's total points not banked goes back to zero. Banked points can't be taken away and are credited at the end of the round.
The players with the highest point totals are paid a predetermined amount for every point they have earned in relation to the other players. This is a great game for golfers who are streaky and also for golfers who love to gamble. Think about it: If you make back-to-back birdies without banking, you'll have earned the equivalent of making 18 bogeys earned at 5 points each.
When a golfer or team wins a hole, they "remove" a club from the opponent or opponents' bags.
But the Wolf can win or lose more money by going it alone. There's a game similar to Wolf called Defender that works well for groups of three. Las Vegas is a game for teams of two players each. Each golfer on a side plays his own ball, and the two scores are combined on each hole. Not added together, but strung together. For example, the scores of one side are 4 and 5, so the team score is Set a money value for each point.
But be careful—winnings and losings can add up very quickly in this game. Aces and Deuces, sometimes called Acey Ducey, is a betting game best for groups of four golfers. On each hole, the low score the "ace" wins an agreed upon amount from the other three players, and the high score the "deuce" loses an agreed upon amount to the other three players. The ace bet is usually worth twice the duece bet, but groups can agree on any amount.
Ties for either the ace or the duece mean that no money is paid for that bet on that hole; carryovers are optional at the discretion of the group members decide before the round starts. Gruesomes is betting game that pits two-person teams against each other. Both team members tee off, then the other team gets to choose which of the drives your side has to play. Obviously, they'll choose the worst—or most gruesome—of the two drives.
But you get to do the same to them! Following selection of the tee balls, the teams play out the hole in standard alternate shot fashion, except that the player who hit the "gruesome" tee ball also plays the second shot for his or her side. Criers and Whiners also called No Alibis, Wipe Out, Replay and Play It Again Sam is a game of do-overs, or mulligans , that can be used from any point on the golf course: Handicaps are converted into free shots that are used during the round.
Say a player has a course handicap of Rather than applying the handicap in the proper manner, the player is instead given 14 free shots to use at any point on the course, at any time during the round. Hit a bad shot off the second tee? Hit it again. Now you have 13 left. The game can be played with full handicaps as in the example above but it is most common to use only three-fourths or two-thirds of handicaps. This game is good for a group in which there are differing skill levels, especially for one player.
This is a game for at least 3 people, and to start you must set a minimum and maximum amount on each hole. The banker tees off last for each hole, and each player determines how much they want to play the banker for that hole. Lowest score on the hole is the banker for the next hole, and ties are broken by the longest putt. You can also press in this game, but only off the tee and before the banker hits.
The banker can press back after hitting off the tee, but he must press everyone — not just whoever pressed him initially. This game rotates banker and creates drama off the tee. Further, this game is good for players who have differing bankrolls. One player can keep his bets at just a couple bucks, whereas the high rollers in the group can play for more money if they wish. The wolf always goes last on every hole, and the designation means you get to choose how you play the hole.
You can elect to play 1-on-3 or pick a partner and go 2-on The caveat is that the wolf must make his or her decision right after each drive. Player 1 must decide before Player 3 hits if he wants to partner up with Player 2. If not, Player 3 hits and he has the same decision. After Player 4, he can partner with him or play 1-on But if Player 1 elects to go 1-on-3, the bet doubles.
The most popular version is five-point scotch, in which there are five separate bets going at a time:. If two players make a birdie, it would cancel the bet for all players. Likewise, if both teams score a 4, there are no points awarded for lowest score on the hole.
Set a fixed amount for each point and divvy up money at the end of the round. Presses are encouraged, as explained above. This game can be hard to track considering there are multiple ways to earn points, but it does make it exciting and allows players to feature certain parts of their game. You can add points like longest drive or longest putt as well. He typically plays each hole as having eight possible points:. Teams can win anywhere from 0 to 8 points on the hole and up to 16 if they blitz all categories.
That refers to one player or team winning all points on a hole, which would then double. Plus, you can integrate wolf rules into the game, where one player is competing against the others and can choose to go 1-on-3, 2-on-2, or lone wolf. Scores are multiplied on the low total category. Like scotch, it can be hard to track the points, but it makes for crazy decisions and a ton of fun on every shot on the course.

Miami: Like a traditional scramble, but the golfer whose tee shot is selected is unable contribute again until the team has reached the green. Chicago: Similar to a traditional Stableford, but adjusted to better include higher handicap players.
In Chicago, each golfer begins the round with a score associated to their handicap — low handicappers begin with scores heavily in the negatives, while high handicappers begin with scores around zero. From here, everyone plays by the same scoring format, and the winner is the player who ends the round with the highest score. Las Vegas: Two vs. After each hole, the team with the higher score subtracts from the team with the lower score. The difference in score equals the debt one team owes the other.
There are a series of twists and catches that accompany Las Vegas that I dive into with the full rules, which you can read by clicking the link HERE. Each point is worth an associated dollar value, and strict etiquette is a must. Split Sixes: A three-player game in which every hole is worth six points, which are split between the players in accordance to their score on the hole.
Defender: Another three-player game in which two players compete on a team against one player, called the defender. Wolf: Similar to defender, but featuring four players. Then, the group plays a best ball format, with the winning side taking home the payday. James Roll: Our lucky 13th favorite golf gambling game? The St. James Roll.
Beat only two of them? Beat one of them? The goal, as you can probably guess, is to earn the most points during the round. There are 54 points up for grabs so just be mindful when setting the betting stake. No, it's not a dance. It's a twist on a traditional fourball format with only the best ball counting on the 1st hole, two on the 2nd and then three on the 3rd.
The process repeats so that you count the best score on the 4th and so on. The player with the lowest net score on each hole becomes the Chairman on the next hole. If two players tie, then the current Chairman continues for the next hole. The big difference maker is that a hole can only be won by the current Chairman. The player who wins the most holes takes the bragging rights — and the money. This fourball variation might not win you any friends, but it's a great way to stitch a playing partner up.
Thereafter, both players must decide which of the two balls to play with for the remainder of the hole. The other ball is then picked up and the players must alternate strokes before holing out. If you're still talking once you've finished, consider it a job well done.
If you've ever played double or quits, you'll like this one. When playing a shot from off the green in matchplay, the player can shout "flap" between striking the ball and its first bounce. The player then has to hole out with the next shot to win the hole — great if you've got a makeable chip or bunker shot.
If they don't, they lose the hole. Once a player calls "flap" on a shot, the opponent s can shout "double" before the ball bounces to double the win or loss. A game of fourball better-ball matchplay with three real players and one imaginary player. One player is allocated to play with the "ghost", who makes par on every hole. The ghost plays off scratch and gives shots to every other player in the group. We'd recommend pairing the higher handicapper with the ghost.
Follow in the footsteps of the European Tour by playing in a greensomes pairs knockout tournament, spread over two days. The only catch is that you need a group of 16 to make it work, hence it's perfect for a society weekend. Teams are split into groups of four — similar to the UEFA Champions League — and face off in a round-robin format on the rst day. Each match is played over six holes, with three points being awarded for a win and one point for a draw. The top two teams from each group then progress to the knockout stages, all of which take place on day two.
In the event of a tie, matches are decided by a sudden-death play-off. A variant of traditional pairs matchplay, where both players tee off, and the opposing team then decides which ball is played next. Alternate shots are then played for the rest of hole, as in foursomes.
A popular scramble format during charity days, where your partners can only bail you out on so many occasions. For example, player A uses it on hole one, player B on the second and so on. The score of the designated "lone ranger" is then combined with the lowest score of the other team members to make up the team score. This takes "pick and place" to a new level. The idea is that you can ditch your less-than- desirable shot for someone else's in your group on any hole.
Just move your ball to where the other shot nished and play your next shot from there. This is permitted on any type of shot, from a drive to a putt. To keep the peace, make sure you decide on the amount of Metoos allowed before you begin your round. This is effectively a stableford format, but the scoring is different.

Skins games are quite simple at base, but the value of holes can increase if those competing halve a series of holes because the value carries over, causing the pot to build. Round Robin, also known as Hollywood or Sixes, is a betting game for groups of four that involves two members of the group teaming up against the other two.
The catch is that partners rotate every six holes. It's actually a compilation of lots of little bets—things such as birdies , long drive on a hole, closest to the pin on a hole are worth positive points; things such as double bogeys and hitting into water subtract points. Each point is worth a set amount. Add up the points at the end of the round and pay up. Some groups wind up with literally dozens of things—barkies, sandies , Arnies, etc.
Bingo Bango Bongo awards points throughout the round for three different accomplishments: hitting the green first, being closest to the pin once all balls are on the green , and being first to ho le out. At the end of the round, points are totaled and the differences are paid out. It's also a common tournament format for association playdays.

The ace bet is usually worth twice the duece bet, but groups can agree on any amount. In this example, say, a dollar.
If you or your side wins the hole, you have the option of banking that money or letting it ride. If you or your side win again before the other side or another golfer in the group wins, the amount for the skins doubles. That number is the quota of points needed to be made using a modified Stableford system.
