Mini Golf Bet-aganza!

31 May

I will cover a brief description of the rules and typical bets for ‘Mini Golf Bet-aganza!’

Any bet types / trades / transactions / props, that do not involve collusion, may be offered.

First hole starting order will be determined by Rock-Paper-Scissors tournament (most wins will pick putting position, and ties will have rematch, all RPS matches are best of 3).

First putt must be from hole on putting mat at each hole. If no putting mat is offered a decision will be made at said hole.

Any type of putt with the club end of putter is allowed. One may cross any ‘boundary’ necessary to make the hole.

If ball land out-of-bounds (OOB) one may choose to take a stroke and replace ball one club width from where the ball left the course or play on without taking any penalties.

Balls submersed in water (not on the edge of a puddle) do not have the option to play on.

One mulligan is allowed on the 18 first putts of a hole. Decision to take mulligan must be announced by saying “Mulligan” prior to the next playing putting their first shot.

Farthest from hole will play their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th shots first. No balls may be marked. You may strike opponents balls’ on purpose (see diagrams below).


Black circle is hole, blue is taking 2nd shot


One club width will be given before your shot if your ball is next to the wall or other immovable objects. (see diagram below)


Betting (may be changed):

$1 per hole per person.

If everyone ties, pot continues to next hole (3 straight tied holes, from all players, would result in $20 pot on fourth hole).

Less than everyone ties, those that tied will decide if they would like to split (boo!), or continue side-pot between them in next hole, or double down on next hole (yeah buddy!). Double-down would be if two peeps tie in hole #1, then hole #2 is would be the $5 pot from hole #1 plus the amount doubled-down for $1 (5+1+1=7). If hole #2 is tied and double option is taken again hole #3 is (5+1+1+2+2). Other methods are permitted. If the double option is not agreed by all tied players there will be a split payout of the pot. There are no restrictions, beside collusion, in ‘Bet-aganza!’

Low score for the course wins $20 ($5 from each player).

Hole in one = Bonus $1 from every player (normally would be $4 profit, increases to $8; $1 + 1 = $2 from each player).

If two players get hole in one on same hole, they will each win $1 from each player, and decide what to do with the halved hole.

Odds offered on course score for non-players are:

Alex +300

Steve +300

Matt +400

Jeff +400

Craig +400
