So, a friend and I were trying to come up with something fun to play so we combined a couple different games and added some rules.
Basically, we played flick/roller/putter. You have to throw one of these shots from every tee pad. To make it more difficult we broke the course into 3 hole segments and you had to use them all, every 3 holes. You also could not throw back to back shots of the same type, for example, you can not drive with a putter on hole 3 and 4, even though 4 starts a new segment.
To add to this, we included the game Driver. Whoever had the best drive on each hole gets a point, if you make the putt (both put from the Driver's lie) you get a point, and if you bogey the hole you lose a point.
It was a ton of fun and we broke the course into two 9 hole rounds, or 3 segments of the game for each half of the course. Mandating that you use all 3 every 3 holes really brings some strategy into play. For a more relaxed version we would play the same game, but you only have to use each 3 shots twice every 9 holes, this allows you to score a little better, but if you have a decent level of comfort with all 3 types of shots you don't actually force yourself to do anything difficult that often. Breaking it into the 3 hole sections really can put you in a tough spot and make you work on your shots!
Good times, give it a try!
