1. Choose the club you like most and use it for the entire course. A lot of people prefer a pitching wedge, but people use everything from sand wedges for the beach, to 7 irons in deep grass – and every club in between.
2. A T box is the place where you begin playing the hole. Decide on T box locations among your group from hole to hole. Choose closer T’s boxes for young or less experienced players. More serious players can choose to shoot from further away for more challenging hazards.
3. Try to design the course so you end up where you began. Circular course designs get you right back to the cooler! It also allows spectators to pick prime spots to watch the exciting finish of the game.
Remember: Short, Challenging, Hazard-Filled course layouts work best!
4. Keep the hole distances as short as possible, using obstacles to create shot making possibilities. This game is not about distance, but working on your short game with a shot-making ball.
5. If you don’t have a club, you can always get some cheap ones at Play It Again Sports, Craigslist, or a local thrift shop. There are also clubs available to purchase in the Accessories section of the website.
6. If you are playing in public parks, etc., remember to be courteous – the balls are designed for safety and playability but stray shots happen.
7. When playing on well manicured lawns, parking lots, public parks, or other places where you need some divot control – use the shag rug to prevent harming the grass or club. These can also be used as soda can cozies
8. The 10″ thin glow sticks are for inserting into the holes of the ball for night golf. Use the included poker to push the tail of the stick completely into the ball.
9. The participants can also wear the glow-sticks as safety necklaces for visibility. We usually put some on kids and dogs to wear for obvious safety reasons. You can get replacement glow sticks at your local Dollar store or on Amazon.
10. The Golf Everywhere ball has been specifically designed for improving your short game by creating a large sweet spot to emphasize shot-making rather than distance. Safety is one of the benefits of a strong plastic ball, and the wiffle shots you can make using our ball are fantastic. Personalize your game ball with a sharpie for identification purposes.
11. Redesign your course by moving the Flag Sticks and T boxes around. You can also use everyday objects to create unlimited hazards; Hula hoops and leaf piles can become sand bunkers, or outline a water hazard with a garden hose. Use super cans or lawn chairs as obstacles; the possibilities are endless.
12. HAVE FUN. It’s good to have a course scorekeeper, but don’t take yourself too seriously, the real object of the game is laughter. Make time for a competitive round or two at the end of the event.
