Have you guys ever played in a fun tournament where you might have to use a 7 iron for one hole, tee off from a chair on the next, and putt blindfolded on another?  I'm trying to come up with some ideas for a tournament and need some fun ideas.  Thanks guys.

One cool thing u can do if it is charity is sell the use of foot and hand wedges..  Like 5 dollars buys u 3 foot wedges and 2 hand wedges for the round..  So 3 times u can kick the ball and 2 time u can throw it without counting stokes that is always pretty funny..

I played in one where you had to sit in a chair and tee off on one hole.

That was something I could have easily done when I was a kid, probably would have hit it about 240 back then out of the chair.  But in the tournament, I hit almost a trick shot.  Cold topped it, it went about 6 feet in front of me and somehow spun back just behind where I had teed it up..........  I'll never live that one down. :rolleyes:

Played in a tournament last year that had a couple in-games to play.  One was a club toss.  They had an old 6 iron, and you could throw it as far as possible.  You had the option of teeing off from where it landed.  Most people couldn't find the fairway, so it was pretty amusing.  The other was a football toss, same concept.  I got lucky and threw it on the women's tee about 35 yards ahead, so we got real close on a Par 4.  This was all in a 4 man Scramble.

I have heard of taking the pin out on a Par 5 so the group doesn't know where the pin is until they are close. Also, I have seen the pin and cup put into a sandtrap. You can even make them tee off with the oldest persimmon clubs you can find for a hole.

I do an annual golf tourney each year with tricked up holes.  We have done seval different things:  
1) was hit an illegal driver off with the other hand, if right handed, hit left and so on.
2) make an 8" cup on a par three and call it a "Big As... Hole".  
3)  One hole play back tees and next hole play front tees.
4) The best reaction was to build goal posts from PVC and make it the straightest drive, get three strokes off if   
you make the drive like a field goal.  
5) did a putting contest with hockey sticks like Happy Gilmore.  
I got the idea from another site for a Halloween Golf Tourney named "Hell Day".
This year the tourney will have a theme of "Swamp People" because we have a crawfish boil after.  Try to tie it in with Louisiana.

I played in a tourney where we teed off with racquet balls on a short par 3. I think I hit 5 iron like 115 yards. Good fun.

Here is the email I got this year around halloween



NHGC TOUGHMAN
Andy and Kevin's Revenge

"Correct me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're going to lock me up and throw away the key..."


~  Carl Spackler, Caddyshack

2 Person Scramble
Date:11/10/2012
Time:10am Shotgun
Entry Fee:$50 public, $25 annual pass holders

Includes Cart, Green Fee, Lunch at turn, and Prizes


Format:


This will be a standard 2 man scramble with a few twists thrown in. Andy will set the course up as he chooses and all players will have to play the course as they find it. You don't have any idea what to expect from tractors on fairways, fences around greens, holes on slopes, tee boxes in unusual places, and whatever else we may think of.  This will be a handicapped event.  All participants must have a valid USGA handicap. Teams will receive 50% of their average handicap.  Partners may not be more than a 10 handicap difference.  


NO MULLIGANS
Those are for wimps!

NO WHINING
The pins will be tucked, really tucked!  And if we're lucky the wind will blow! Any whining will result in the amount of penalty Andy or Kevin deem appropriate

Cross Country!!!

I really want my home course to do this.

Basically tee off on one hole, but finish on a different green. You're forced to plot your way around in a really odd way... trees, corners, etc. Maybe 6 holes or something with pars 3, 4, 5 and 6 depending on your layout.

We have done some cross country tournaments at our course, but we have 36 holes to mess with so we had a bunch of holes that were over 1000, I think the avg. distance was like 700. It was fun.
We also have done drunk night golf the day before a invitational, that was really fun. I play better short game in the dark when I can't see. no more blow chips, and pitches.

I play in a charity event each year.

Holes include.

short par 4 tee off with pitching wedge.
5iron only
happy gilmore tee off.
worst drive hole (you have to play the worst drive)
impossible put (put the hole on a ridge)
tee off with a hockey stick
tee off on a tractor tire.
no flag
port hole (pay $5 for a shot of port then tee off using your plastic port glass on a short par 3 get ten back if your on the green)
gamble hole (pay $5 if you land on the hole you get $10 back, pick a hard par 3)

Funny thing about the $5 holes are they arent optional however if you dont participate its a $5 fine. its for charity right, and they guilt you when you win to donate it all back to charity.

im sure google will have some up there.

Played in a scramble one time and we walked up to the tee on a par 3 and there were two sets of clubs on the tee and if you were right handed you hit left handed and vise versa but was only the tee shot the rest of the hole was regular play.

Last summer I played in a 4-person best ball tournament that benefitted the local high school golf team.  It was played at a course that featured a 9 hole executive course, and a 9 hole par3 course. You could purchase mulligans for $1 each.
The 9 hole executive course play was pretty normal except for prizes for longest drive, shortest drive, closest to pin.  But when we got to the par 3 course is when it got interesting.
- tee off with a marshmallow
- roll a dice to see what club you hit with - i.e. 1=driver, 6=putter.
- hit with pawn shop (junk) club (limited selection)
- one hole we paid a high school team member to hit for us.
- another hole if we could hit closer to pin than a highschool member, we got a free mulligan to use elsewhere

Played one where instead of chair, it was a toilet on plywood.  I'll post my picture when I get a chance.  Teed of with a cut-off 5 iron, you have to decide if you get on your knees or kill your back!

I have played a course that has so much water that it's very difficult to play all 18 holes with one ball. The idea is issue 1 ball to each player on the first tee and when you lose it you're done. For those who want to play with a 7 iron all the way around it's still low score wins with most holes played.

Similar to post above. A game played at a local comp. everyone starts off number 1. It's essentially stroke however once you have used up all your shots you pick up the ball. First group takes a marker and once the last person is finished with their handicap strokes they place the marker in the middle of the fairway. Next person or group if they beat that person pick up the marker and put it where they finish. Most people are out at hole 15-16 and the winner is usually half way down the second hole essentially making 19.5 holes. It's embarrassing If your having a bad day and your out by hole 13. Long walk back to the clubhouse. Longest I've seen is tee of own hole 4. 31 handicapper had a good day.

Played in 4 man scramble where on one par 4 they had 4 cards and each one on your team pulled a card. The cards said iehter putter, iron, wedge or wood. Whatever the card said is what you had to play for the whole hole in. Was a blast to play.

Bah, my local 9 hole, that's any time the Yankees lose. If the Yanks lose tot he Red Sox?  :lol: Barely legal pin placement. :lol:

Played a scramble where everyone started off from the whites...

The score on the previous hole determined what you used to tee off from on the next hole.
Better than par = Tips
Par = Mid tees
Bogey+ = Forward tees

I like the idea of the pulling the card to pick a club or roll the dice. Never saw those before. Might suggest them.

Our family outing had a "screwball" green. Took a ball and put two drywall screws in from opposite poles, sticking out about half an inch. You could line it up so the screws wouldn't hit your putter face, if you caught it just right, it would roll pretty straight, but as soon as it gets a little off axis, it jumps all over the place.
