Golf Games for Threesomes



~ Sixes for Threesomes

Played for six “points” per hole.

The winner of the hole gets 4 “points”, second place gets 2 “points” and the loser gets zero.

  • - If two players tie for low score they get 3 “points” each and the loser gets zero – 3-3-0
  • - If all players tie then each gets 2 “points” – 2-2-2
  • - If one player wins and the other two players tie for 2nd, then points are awarded 4-1-1



~ Eighty Onegolf games for threesomes

81 is similar to the Six Point Game (above), except that each hole is worth nine “points” instead of six. This game produces higher scores and therefore higher payouts, so think of it as Sixes for high rollers.

The winner of the hole gets 5 “points”, second place gets 3 “points” and the loser gets 1 – (5-3-1).

  • - If two players tie for low score they get 4 “points” each and the loser gets one – 4-4-1
  • - If all players tie then each gets 3 “points” – 3-3-3
  • - If one player wins and the other two players tie for 2nd, then points are awarded 5-2-2



~ Diablogolf games for threesomes

* Note - The name comes from the number 666 as the bets are divided into three 6-hole matches.

This game is actually a variation on the more typical Nassau where instead of playing a bet for the front and back nines and an optional third bet for the over-all 18, three 6-hole matches are played under match play rules with each hole being worth 1 win (or 1 point).

Can also be played by groups of different sizes and also by teams of players as well.




~ Murder / Long Ballgolf games for threesomes

Each hole is played for points equal to the yardage of the hole. A 450 yard par 4 is worth 450 “points”, a 165 yard par 3 is worth 165 “points” – and so on for all 18 holes.

Holes not won outright are carried forward, or for the less aggressive “gamblers” those holes can just die and only points for holes won outright can be accumulated.




~ The Goose & The Gander

Played for one bet per each nine holes – It’s called The Goose on the Front 9 and The Gander for the Back 9.

A player gets The Goose or The Gander by winning a hole and keeping it for the remainder of the nine. Once a player has The Goose or The Gander, any other player must beat his score on any subsequent hole to knock it loose, and it can then be picked up by any player that wins outright any hole left in that nine. The Goose and The Gander are only won if a single player has a hold of it at the end of each nine holes.




~ Rabbitsgolf games for threesomes

To win the Rabbit, one player must win the lowest score on four holes (rabbit legs) before any other player beats him on any hole. Holes do not need to be won consecutively, but four holes must be won by a single player before he loses a hole.

If a player does win four “legs” of the rabbit, then he has won the rabbit and a new rabbit bet can begin. If a player has one, two, or three legs of the rabbit and is beaten by both players then the rabbit is knocked loose and nobody has any legs. However, if only one player beats you, then he has a rabbit leg and the other players have none.

This game is typically played in threesome groups making it more likely that any one player could actually with the rabbit, but it can also be played in groups of any size, where just one timely hole win can claim the rabbit. Under this format the front nine rabbit is sometimes not even won until the 10th or 11th hole or later, and the back nine rabbit might not even get claimed.
