Definition: Disaster, a k a Trouble, is a points game in which the winner at the end of the round is the player (or team) that has collected the fewest number of points. That’s because points are “awarded” for bad shots. Hit a ball out of bounds, that’s a point. Points in Disaster can be given any value, and what earns a point can vary from group to group – it’s up to you. But a common point system is as follows:
- Water ball – 1 point
- Out of bounds – 1 point
- In a bunker – 1 point
- Failing to get ball out of bunker – 1 point
- 3-putt – 1 point
- 4-putt – 3 points
- Hitting from one bunker into another – 2 points
- Whiff – 4 points
- Double bogey or worse: minus-3 points
- Bogey: minus-1 point
- Par: 0 points
- Birdie: 2 points
- Eagle: 5 points
- Double eagle: 8 points
Quota format involves individuals or teams starting with a certain number of points, based on handicap, then adding points for achievements on the course. Each golfer begins the match with points equivalent to their handicap, so a 3-handicap golfer starts with 3 points and a 10 handicap golfer starts with 10 points. The goal is to reach 36 points, which can vary in some tournaments to 39. Points are awarded to golfers based on performance on the course, and are awarded as follows:
- Bogeys – 1 point
- Pars – 2 points
- Birdies – 4 points
- Eagles – 8 points
Definition: On every course, there are a few holes that give every golfer trouble. The ones where, no matter how many times you play the course, you can never quite tame those holes. Don’t you just hate those holes? In Hate ‘Em, you get choose two of those holes and, before the round starts, write down a par on each. A stipulation is that the two holes must be comprised of one par 4 and one par 5. Hate ‘Em is usually played with full handicaps. At the end of the round, add up the strokes (including the two pars on your Hate ‘Em holes), deduct your handicap strokes, and the low player (or group) wins.
Each team member plays their own ball throughout the round. After each hole, the lower net score of the two teammates is the score that’s counted for that hole. The team with the lowest net best ball team score at the end of 9 holes wins.
Is the name of a golf betting game for two teams of two golfers each in which a side’s scores are put together (or paired) to form a double-digit number, rather than added together. Don’t worry, it’s quite simple once you see an example. Winnings and losings can add up quickly in Las Vegas, which is often played for $1 per point, so it’s a game preferred by better (or at least wealthier) golfers.
How Teams Scores Work in the Las Vegas Format
The team’s two scores are not added together, they are put together or paired. What does that mean? Let’s say Golfer A and Golfer B form one Las Vegas team. On the first hole, A scores 5 and B scores 6. Add them up and that’s 11. But we don’t add up scores in Las Vegas, we pair them to form a new number. Put “5” and “6” together and you get 56. Fifty-six is the score for Team A/B on Hole 1. In Las Vegas, the smaller of the two scores goes first when forming the bigger number. In our example above, if A had gotten the 6 and B had scored the 5, the team score on that hole would still be 56, because the smaller number (5) goes first.
A couple more examples:
- On Hole 2, both golfers make 4s. That becomes 44.
- One Hole 3, Golfer A makes 8 and Golfer B makes a 3. That’s 38.
Here’s one of the exceptions we mentioned to putting the smaller number first. If one of the golfers makes a 10 or higher, the higher number goes first. This is good thing! If A scores 5 and B makes a 10, the team score is 105 rather than 510. This is a safeguard against the numbers getting out of hand.
Only strokes taken with a putter on the putting surface are counted. No handicaps are used to net down the number of putts made. The winners will be the player making the fewest (gross) putts.
Combined Net Stroke Play (Played in all 4 Majors)
Definition: Stroke play is a round of golf in which the score is kept by adding the cumulative total of strokes taken throughout the round. Your league handicap is subtracted from the total strokes to give a net score.
Definition: Odd Fellows is a variant of a Hate ‘Em where you choose three holes and subtract them from your total.
The difference is: you get to choose your two holes AFTER you golf instead of before. The two holes must be a par 4 and a par 5.
Criers and Whiners / Mulligans Replace Handicap
Definition: Criers and Whiners is a game of do-overs, or mulligans that can be used from any point on the course. In Criers and Whiners, handicaps are converted into free shots that are used during a round. Say a player has a handicap of 14. Rather than applying the handicap in the proper manner, the player is instead given 14 free shots to use at any point on the course, at any time. Hit a bad shot off the second tee? Hit it again. Now you’ve got 13 left. The game can be played with full handicaps (as in the example above) but it most common to use only three-fourths or two-thirds of handicaps. That forces the player to be judicious in using his replay strokes. Two other conditions usually apply: The first tee shot of the day may not be replayed, and no shot can be replayed twice.
Last Team Standing / Flags Competition
Flags – also commonly known as Last Man Standing or Tombstone – is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes, then play the golf course until their strokes run out. The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. The golfer who stakes his flag the farthest around the course is the winner. Example: Your allotment is 42 strokes. You play the course until you hit your 42nd shot, which, let’s say, comes on the 8th fairway. That’s where you plant your flag. If no other player’s flag is planted beyond yours – say, on the 8th green or 9th tee box – you are the winner. Flags will be played using your league handicaps to determine the stroke allotment. A player with a handicap of 6, for example, receives 42 strokes on a par-36 (nine-hole) course. Using handicaps often means that several golfers will reach the end of the 9th hole with strokes left; those players with strokes remaining can stop after 9 holes and the golfer with the most strokes remaining is the winner.
