Golf is a fun game for two friends or a whole group of people, all you will need is a group of friends, a deck of cards, and some beer. Golf is easy all you need to do is deal 4 cards to each player. Make sure the cards are dealt face down, and no one can look at their cards. When the dealer has dealt 4 cards to each player then they will place the rest of the cards in the middle of the table and turn the top one over. Then each player may look at one of their face down cards, you may only look at this card one time, so memorize it.
The object of the Golf is to get the lowest hand (score) possible. The face cards are worth 10 points (strokes) and the Ace is 1 point. The dealer will start by either drawing off the top of the deck or off the discard pile. If you get a low card then you can trade it for one of your cards, but you don’t know what you have so you have to guess except for the one card you have looked at. You then discard the card you traded for, sometimes you will discard an Ace or King which sucks because you will help someone else lower their amount of strokes.
After you discard, what ever card you picked, the next person can either take his card or draw off the top of the deck and so on. When someone thinks they have the lowest (score) they knock on the table on their turn, they are not allowed to draw another card they must pass their turn. Everyone else gets one more turn and then the players have to flip all their cards over, and count their strokes.
The person who has the lowest amount of (Strokes) wins the game and everybody else has to drink their score. For example if you got a 14 the winner will start counting SLOW OR FAST until he reaches your number, then you can quit drinking. Whoever had the highest hand is the last one to stop drinking.
If the person who knocks doesn’t have the lowest hand then their hand doubles and they must drink that many drinks. In the event of a tie the two players would draw a card from the deck and the highest card would win the hand, and then you would revert back to your golf score for the drinks.
All players add up their cards and the one with lowest hand wins. Everybody else has to drink their score. For example if you got a 14 the winner will start counting SLOW OR FAST until he reaches your number, then you can quit drinking. Whoever had the highest hand is the last one to stop drinking.
Golf can be a fun drinking game at a party, and generally those who actually play golf as a recreation sport have more fun and are more competitive when they play Golf the card game. You also don’t have to play Golf as a drinking game, it just makes it more fun!
Some other variations I have found to Golf, players can look at two of their cards instead of one. Another rule is that the person who wins the first game can take one card from any player and trade one of their own cards, they get to see what this card is in addition to their one card they are allowed to see. The catch to this is that they cant look at the card they give the other player, so they may give away a King. This does however help the player because they get to start off knowing two of their cards instead of one.
Well now you know the rules to Golf and you can play at your next party. Come up with your own way to play and make keep it interesting there are no limits to what you can do with Golf.
