Golf is a game that may be played with as many players as desired. It
is also a very quick game, limited to only 3 "shots" per "hole". Games
may be played with 9 or 18 holes. A 9 hole game with 2 players can be
played in 5 minutes or less.
Like real golf, the object is to complete each hole in as few shots as
possible. The player with the lowest score at the end of 9 or 18 holes
Players names are written across the top of the board in order. Order
is usually determined by throwing one dart each for the bullseye with
the closest playing first. This is a game that playing order makes no
difference, all players have an equal number of throws to complete the
The agreed upon number of holes to play is written in order down the
left side of the board (1 through 9 or 1 through 18). A running total
is kept for each hole played and written next to the number of the hole
in the column for that player.
The thin outer "doubles" ring counts as a hole in one. The thin inner
"triples" ring counts as 2 strokes. The thin wedge between the bullseye
and the triples ring counts as 3 strokes. The thick wedge between the
doubles and triples ring counts as 4 strokes. Missing the number
entirely counts a 5 strokes. 5 is the worst score you can score on any
The first player begins the first hole by throwing for 1's. The player
may choose to throw one, two or all three darts for the hole. However
many darts are thrown. The LAST dart thrown is the one that counts.
For example, the player throws the first dart into the thin wedge of the
1 for a score of 3. Un-satisfied with this score, he throws the
remaining two darts at the triple and misses the ones entirely.
His score for is now 5 for the hole, he may not choose to count the first
dart because he continued throwing. If he had been satisfied with the
first dart, he may have kept the score of three and not thrown the
remaining two darts.
The remaining players play through the first hole in order. When play
returns to the first player, the second hole is played and 2 is the
target number. The game continues as such until all 9 or 18 holes
have been played.
There isn't much strategy to this game, however unless your very good,
be satisfied with what you have, you might end up like my example above.
