This is the viral new golf game for the beach, backyard, tailgate, office, and clubhouse – a patented, mind-blowing mash-up of golf and traditional backyard games! It has combined the old fashioned, beer-slugging, tailgate-dominating, sunshine-basking goodness of games like cornhole with the gentlemanly, giddiness-inducing, side-betting beauty of golf. It is the only backyard game where you can work over your buddies while working on your short game – revolutionary! If people have the itch to golf but can’t get out, it is a fun way to practice at home. The set includes two target boards, two heavy-duty chipping mats, and six high-density foam balls by almostGolf.
HOW TO PLAY
Like all great and beautiful things, playing golf is pretty simple:
Step One:Set up the boards as depicted below.
Step Two: Find three friends (or highly skilled pets) and start chipping!
Gameplay is reminiscent of cornhole, washers or horseshoes, but with some cool new twists. Flip a coin to start, winner goes first. Here’s how scoring works for 1.) Match Play; 2.) Cornhole-style and 3.) “Six Ball” scoring:
1 point: Just hit the board on a fly. Boardie.
3 points:Drain your shot in the larger center hole. 3-Hole.
5 points: Send the ball to its home in either top corner hole. 5-Hole.
2x points: If you’re a surgeon with a sixty degree wedge, bounce your shot off the chipping mat for double (2, 6 or 10) points. Bounce Shot.
Note: If your shot hits the Chippo board on a fly and the ball then bounces or rolls into the 3-Hole or the 5-Hole, you do get the 3 or 5 points for getting that shot in the hole. Like golf, the ball just needs to end up in the hole. Go to your home ball.
If the ball hits the board and then bounces or rolls into a hole, do I get the 3 or 5 points for that hole? Or just the 1 point for hitting the board?
You get 3 points if the ball hits the board on a fly and bounces or rolls into the center 3-Hole; and you get 5 points if the ball hits the board on a fly and bounces or rolls into the top corner 5-Holes. Like golf, the ball just needs to end up in the hole.
If the ball pops out of the hole, do I get the 3 or 5 points for that hole?
Technically, the ball needs to stay in the 3-Hole/5-Hole for the 3/5 points to count. If you are a stickler to this rule, a ball that “crosses the plane” but pops out would count as just 1 point. There will likely be a direct correlation between adherence to this rule and the amount of money on the game at hand…and we are completely cool with that.
If the ball hits the white frame and not the inner, turf-covered area of the board on a fly, does it still count as 1 point?
Yes. Any shot that hits any part of the board on a fly, and does not end up in one of the holes, counts as 1 point.
What is the maximum number of adult beverages that I can consume while playing one round of the game?
We left this one up to you guys and gals to test out.
