Bar Golf Shenanigans

One of the events I planned for Brian's 30th birthday bash included an afternoon of bar golf.

While I knew the gist of bar golf, it took me a while to research the rules and details needed to prepare for the event.

Here's what you'll need to do:

1. Map out a course that includes nine bars of close proximity (or 18 bars if you're playing a full course).

2. Decide on how you will score the game.

Here's an example of the scorecard that I used:

  Player 1 Final Score:  ____      Player 2 Final Score: ____   Total Team Score:_____

                                                                                                                                                                                                                   TOTAL:


Scoring:              Rules                                          Penalties   


Bogey= +1       30 minutes/hole       *Water hazard* If golfer uses restroom on this hole, add two strokes.

Par = 0               No  Cheating               If player gets physically violent with anyone during game, add 5 strokes to final score.

Birdie= -1                                                   If player gets kicked out of a bar or denied service, they are disqualified.

 

I decided to make guy/girl teams, so that each person also had to rely on a partner to drink their fair share of alcohol. Official team names are listed below (and they obviously had to include naughty humor).

Team Names:

Fore Play

Balls of Fire

Tiger's Wood

The Wedgies

Reckless Drivers

I like Big Putts

As expected, the night was a riot! We had a wonderful time with friends, and I'm happy to say that we actually made it ito all nine bars! Well, most of us anyway.

We did, however, have an issue determining the official winner. Most people lost track of their score around hole number three.

And, um, about the blurry pictures....

Blame it on the al-al-al-al-al-alcohol.






Remember to Drink Responsibly. :-)
