Here's a fun game to play on the course by all skill levels
We call the golf game badges as each "bad" thing that happens on a golf course is assigned a badge. Each badge is assigned a point value and at the end the person with the least amount of points wins.
For example, let's say there are four badges and each badge is worth 1 point. If at the end of the round, a single golfer has all four badges, he has all four points and loses, and the other three players in the foursome wins. If every golfer ends up with one badge each, no one wins as everyone is tied with one point.
If Golfer 1 has two badges, Golfer 2 has one badge, Golfer 3 has one badge, and Golfer 4 has no badges. Golfer 1 has two points, Golfer 2 and Golfer 3 has 1 point each, and Golfer 4 has no points. Golfer 4 wins.
To make it more interesting you can assign different point amounts to golf course each badge.
How do you get a badge? You get a badge by being the last golfer to perform a "bad" shot on the golf course. Here are some of our favorite badges...
The Snake Badge - Given to the last golfer to 3-putt a hole.
The Squirrel Badge - Given to the last golfer to hit a tree
The Fish Badge - Given to the last golfer to hit a ball in the water
The ebay golf accessories OB Badge - Given to the last golfer to hit a ball out of bounds
The Crab Badge - Given to the last golfer to hit a ball in a sandtrap
The Angel Badge - Given to the last golfer to swear
This game turns around in the blink of an eye. I played this game and had the Fish, OB, Crab, and Snake badges going into the 18th hole. When the hole was finished, I had none.
