SIDE GAME OF THE MONTHThe Plus | Minus Game
This is another fun game that helps focus on the basics for good scoring.  The game can be adapted for any number of players or groups with fairly similar handicaps.Prior to beginning the round the group agrees on a common dollar contribution for the winners pool.  Then each person plays their own ball  and keeps score of the following:Earn a point for:

  • Fairway hit on drive
  • Green in regulation
  • Sandy Par
  • Closest to the pin on Par 3s
  • 1 Putts
  • Birdies

Lose a point for:

  • Out of bounds
  • Shots in a hazard
  • 3 Putts or higher
  • Lost Ball
  • Double bogey or worse

At the conclusion of the round the person with the most points wins the pot.

JUST FOR LAUGHS

Life as a high handicapper

  • Don’t buy a putter if you haven’t had a chance to throw it.
  • It’s not a gimme if you’re still away.
  • Nonchalant putts count the same as chalant putts.
  • The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share suggestions for your golf swing.
