foozle golf gameMy golf pals and I play all sorts of betting games on the course. We play a rabbit on each nine, which is where if you get a skin you get a leg. Four legs at a time, or having any legs after each nine wins you two bucks. We play “barkies” which is where the last guy to hit a tree pays (or if you hit a tree and make par you get paid), “sandies” where the last guy to get in the sand pays or say a “snake” which is were the last guy to three-putt buys everyone a beer at the 19th hole.

Foozle Golf Game

Foozle is a fun golf game along the same lines as those games I mentioned. The game has six coins representing positive and negative things that can happen on the course. If you end up with a coin at the end of the round, you pay out for negatives and get paid for positivies.

Foozle was created by Dave Kapan. He’s a single father with a sever year old son with autism. He’s hoping to sell games to help offset the costs of his medical expenses.

The Positive Coins

Birdie – Whoever ends up with the birdie coin at the end of the round gets paid.
One-Putt – Whoever ends up with the one-putt coin at the end of the round gets paid.

The Negative Coins

Snowman – You don’t want the snowman coin because you’ll have to pay.
Three-Putt – Whoever ends up with this coin pays.
Hazard – If you go in a water hazard, lateral hazard or trap you get this coin.
OB/Lost Ball – Lose a ball and get this coin.

On The Course

Foozle is fun to play on the course. You really hate getting a negative coin but you are glad when one of your opponents messes up and you can give him grief when you hand over the coin to him.

In my golf group all the players are five handicappers or less. So the we have yet to even take the snowman coin out of the bag. We decided to change that to the double bogey coin, but still haven’t used it in two rounds. The one-putt coin however, sees action on nearly every hole. Someone is bound to one-putt in my group on every hole. So we altered the one-putt rules a bit. In our group, to get the one-putt coin the putt has to be for par or better.

Conclusion

Foozle adds a fun dimension to playing golf and betting.

You may need to alter the rules a bit to suit the players in your group, but Foozle is a fun game to play with your pals. I love it when I’ve been carrying around that damn hazard coin and I get to toss it to my opponent when he gags on the 18th and knocks his shot in the sand.

    Fozzle sounds great might have to get one.

    With they guys I play with we play the same thing but its all negative.

    DOG/ you go OB anytime during the round you shout a round in the bar
    CAMEL/ last person in a bunker, buys a round
    DUCK/ last in the water, buys a round
    1st SNAKE/ 1st 3 putt gets to buy a round
    Last SNAKE/ last 3 putt gets to buy a round.
    TWOTTIES/ Not past the ladys tee’s. Gets to buy a round and wear a pink tutu in the bar
    AIRSHOTS/ thats a round
    MOOSE/ anything score in double figures on hole, thats a round

    Keep in mind I play with guys from scratch to 30+ handicaps so its not unusual for there to 20 odd 12oz beers on the table after the round, it can get quite ezpensive and turn into a late night

  4. Kiwi, sounds like you guys need to buy a cab to get home from the 19th hole…

    May all your holes be birdies!
