Putting the Fun in Your Home Green: Creative Games and Competitions

Your home putting green isn't just a training ground for perfecting your putting skills; it's also a fantastic space to have fun and challenge your friends and family to some friendly competition. In this blog post, we'll explore creative ways to use your putting green for exciting games and competitions that will elevate your golfing experience right at home.

1.      Horse: The Putting Edition

Inspired by the classic basketball game, "Horse," this putting version is both fun and competitive. Here's how to play:

  • One player sets up a challenging putt.
  • They take their shot.
  • If they make it, the other players must attempt the same putt.
  • If a player misses, they receive a letter (starting with 'H' and progressing to 'O,' 'R,' 'S,' and 'E').
  • The first player to spell "HORSE" loses.

This game not only sharpens your putting skills but also offers an element of strategy as you choose the toughest shots to challenge your opponents.

2.      Around the World

Around the World is a simple but entertaining putting competition for multiple players. Here's how to play:

  • Set up a series of putting stations around your green, each at different distances and angles.
  • Each player takes turns putting from each station.
  • To advance to the next station, a player must successfully sink their putt.
  • The first player to complete the circuit wins.

This game tests your accuracy and adaptability as you tackle various types of putts.

3.      Putting Poker

Combine your love for golf with a bit of card playing in Putting Poker:

  • Assign each card in a standard deck to a specific putting challenge (e.g., Ace for a long putt, King for a tricky break, etc.).
  • Players draw cards randomly to determine their putting challenge.
  • The player must then attempt to complete the challenge.
  • If successful, they earn poker chips. If they miss, they lose chips.
  • The player with the most chips at the end of the game wins.

Putting Poker adds an element of chance and strategy to your putting sessions.

4.      Putting Challenges

Create a list of putting challenges that range in difficulty and assign point values to each:

  • For example, a simple straight putt might be worth 1 point, while a challenging uphill putt with a sharp break could be worth 5 points.
  • Each player takes turns attempting the challenges, aiming to accumulate as many points as possible within a set time frame.
  • The player with the most points at the end wins.

This game encourages players to practice different types of putts while competing for the highest score.

5.      Mini Golf at Home

Turn your home putting green into a mini-golf course by adding obstacles like cones, tunnels, and ramps. Create a series of holes with distinct challenges and pars. Invite friends or family to compete in a mini-golf tournament, complete with scorecards and prizes for the winners.

Putting Fun

Your home putting green can be more than just a practice area; it can be a source of endless fun and friendly competition. Whether you're playing Putting Horse, challenging your accuracy with Around the World, or adding a poker twist to your putting, these games and competitions can enhance your golfing experience and create lasting memories with loved ones. So, get creative, invite some friends over, and start putting the fun back into your home green.
