Golf has a relaxed pace and perfect blend of luck and strategy. This makes it a wonderful game for grandparents, grandkids, and everyone in between. Golf plays well with up to five players and also makes a great two- player game.
Begin by dealing 9 cards to each golfer, face down (no peeking). You and your fellow golfers then arrange your cards in a 3 by 3 grid and turn over any two cards you choose. The remainder of the deck is placed in the middle of the table as the draw pile. One card is flipped over and placed beside the deck to start the discard pile.
The object of the game is to be the golfer with the lowest score. You can lower the score of your grid two different ways: 1. you can collect negative value red cards, such as a birdie or hole in one. These cards are scored at face value. Red cards are valued from -1 to -4. OR 2. you can make sets of three matching positive value black cards by strategically placing them in a row or column. When a golfer completes a set of three cards they are awarded a negative score for that set of three. The score for the row equals the number on the cards.
There are a few more rules and some Mulligan and Hazard cards that can "throw things off course", but this is the basic idea of this family friendly game. The cards are well themed and fun.
