Golf Game For 3 Players

There are many games golfers play out on the course, but if your not playing in a golf tournament and your out there with 2 of your buddies, not many people know a game for 3 players.

Three Player Golf GameA fun game to play is most commonly called “Nines”

Its a very easy game to play, and can be fun even if the 3 of you all play at different handicaps.

Each player plays their own ball the entire time, if you want to give any high handicap players stokes that is OK too. At the end of each hole you figure out who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd and divide up the “9 Points” as follows…

    • 1st place gets 5 points
    • 2nd place gets 3 points
    • 3rd place gets 1 point

If any golfers tie…

  • 1st/2nd tie, they get 4 points each and the 3rd place gets 1 point.
  • 2nd/3rd tie, they get 2 points each and the 1st place gets 5 points.
  • If all 3 players tie, then each player get 3 points.

Simple and fun, give it a try next time you have 3 golfers together.
