SET THE COURSE
Deal 8 cards to each player. Then arrange your cards into two rows of 4 cards. Each player flips two cards face up to start the game.
ADVANCING DOWN THE FAIRWAY
Play continues in order with all players drawing, then turning over or replacing a card as they shoot for the lowest score.
Players work to reduce their score by matching cards vertically. When cards match vertically, they cancel out to equal zero strokes.
SHAVING OFF STROKES
In this example, the golfer has two matches that cancel out. To find the stroke total, add -5 strokes and 7 strokes. The golfer has +2 strokes on the board.
WINNING THE HOLE
When a player replaces or turns over the last facedown card, showing eight face up cards, play ends for that player. All other players then take one last shot, drawing one last card. After all the players have taken their last shot, all remaining facedown cards are turned over and individual scores are counted and posted on the scorecard.
After nine holes, the player with the lowest amount of strokes wins the game.
