The Games We Play:

3 Blind Mice – Deduct your worst 3 Holes. The same 3 holes must be used for Gross and Net scores. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Beat The Pro – This is an individual game. It will be your net score versus the Pro’s gross score for 18 holes. If your net score ties the Pro’s gross score, it will count as a win for you.

Better 9 – Choose your best gross score on the front or back nine. Strokes fall where they may for net score. 

Cha Cha Cha – This is a foursome game.  Choose 1 best ball on hole #1; 2 best balls on Hole #2; 3 balls on Hole #3.  Repeat for remaining holes. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Eclectic – The best gross and net score is selected on each hole over 2 or more days of play. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Even Holes – Count the even holes (#2, #4, #6, #8, #10, #12, #14, #16, #18). Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Front 4 & Back 5 – Count the scores on the first 4 holes on the front 9 and the last 5 holes on the back 9. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Front 5 & Back 4 – Count the scores on the first 5 holes on the front 9 and the last 4 holes on the back 9. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Odd Holes – Count the even holes (#1, #3, #5, #7, #9, #11, #13, #15, #17). Strokes fall where they may for net score.

ONES – Count the scores on holes beginning with the letters O-N-E-S (#1, #6, #7, #8, #9, #11, #16, #17, #18). Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Par Points (Stableford) – For both gross and net scores, count 1 point for a bogey; 2 points for a par; 3 points for a birdie; and 4 points for an eagle. 0 points are given for double bogey or higher.

Pick 2 Par 5’s; 2 Par 3’s and 5 Par 4’s – Choose your best gross score on 2 Par 5’s; 2 Par 3’s and 5 Par 4’s. Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Scramble – This is a 2, 3 or 4 person team format. All players tee off. Choose the best drive, and all players hit from there. Continue to choose the best shot, with all playing from the same spot until the ball is holed out. A minimum number of drives from each player may be required.

Shamble – This is a 2, 3 or 4 person team format. All players tee off. Choose the best drive, and then all players play their own ball from there until holed out. A minimum number of drives from each player may be required.

Skins (Gross and Net) – This is an individual game. The pot is divided equally for Gross and Net Skins. The player who has the lowest score (gross and/or net) on a hole wins a skin. If two or more players tie (have the same score on the hole), a skin is not awarded. You may win both gross and net skins on the same hole.

T & F – Count the scores on holes beginning with the letters T and F (#2, #3, #4, #5, #10, #12, #13, #14, #15). Strokes fall where they may for net score.

Texas Scramble (Step Aside Scramble) – This is a modified Scramble format. On each hole, all 4 players tee off. The golfer whose ball is chosen must step aside (sit out the next shot). (Note: After tee shot, only 3 players will be playing each shot. No practice is allowed for those who step aside.)
