Check out this game we play at my course called the "The Full Dot Package"

7 posts in this topic

I play with a lot of sick golfaholic gamblers, but it's a lot of fun. We play this game called the full dot package where prett much almost every part of the hole your playing has potential "$$" to be mad or lost.

We usually play $10.00 nassua (front, back and total) and $2.00 a dot and then the back nine everything thing gets doubled if the teams agree. It's 2 man teams. Let me know what you think? Below are the dots and explanantion.

THE FULL DOT PACKAGE


Hogan: Fairway Hit, green in regulation, par of better - 2 dots

Signature: Closest to the hole, par or better - 1 dot

Greenie: Closest to the hole on par threes - 1 dot

Birdie: 2 dots, if two are made by the same team on the same hole, total 6 dots

Eagle: 4 dots, if two are made by the same team on the same hole, 12 dots
Eagle birdie combination on the same hole: 2 dots for the bird, 4 dots for the eagle, 3 dots extra for a total of 9 dots.


Hole in one: 100 dots (NEEDS TO BE AGREED TO BY BOTH TEAMS BEFORE TEEING OFF OF 2- VERY IMPORTANT)

Grand Greenie: all 4 greenies - 4 dots

Gorilla: Closest to on par fives - 1 dot

Grand Gorilla: all 4 gorillas - 4 dots

Grand Shabaz: all greenies and gorrillas, additional 8 dots

Grand Hogan: All 7 hogans on one side, 7 additional dots. If all 14 are achieved, 7 dots for the back plus an additional 14 dots

Stein: Called up and down - 1 dot - odds can be given or requested.

Auto Stein: If you use a putter off the green like on the fringe instead of using a different club

Three putt: 1 dot for the other team, reverses hogan if applicable (except on par 5's hit in two), reverses signature (except on par 5's hit in two), reverses greenie, reverses gorilla (unless green is hit in two)

Sandy: Up and down for par or better - 2 dots, not up and down for par or better - 1 dot

Seve: par or better from a hazard or out of bounds - 1 dot

Hackey: Triple bogey or more, 1 dot for the other team.

Hack Trick: Three hackeys by the same team in the same round, 1 additional dot for the 3rd hackey, 2 additional dots for the 4th hack, 4 additional dots for the 5th hack, 8 dots, 16 dots....

Cart path on 5: 2 dots if par or better, cannot be reversed by three putts

Appearance: 1 dot, team that wins the prior hole needs to achieve par or better on the next hole. If so they earn a dot, if not it is a reverse appearance and the other team earns the dot. You can lose a hole and earn the appearance (say the other team birdies or pars with a stroke). You can win a hole and lose an appearance (say you win a hole with a bogey). The appearance cannot be won with a net par.

Optional Dots: Birdie Bonus: Sometimes we play an additional 5 dots for birdies on 8 and 16 (or other holes). Can be dangerous, because the original 2 dots for birdies are still alive, and 2 birdies pays three on these bonuses.

That's too much thinking and work for me. I have enough trouble making sure to write down my fairways and GIRs on each hole.

I thought so too, but when you start playing it really isnt....you adjust one guy on each team to keep track of the dots.

Yeah, I don't quite buy it either, and I'd never want to be the guy in charge of the dots.

But hey, the most complex game I play is a nassau, so what would I know? Played Bingo Bango Bongo a time or two. Never really did care for a lot of the junk kinds of bets out there, particularly when they're this complex.

Why not just play 20/hole low ball carry over, and 20/hole combined score carry over?.. It's a lot easier.

Sounds like that if everyone is not keeping track then it would easy to get "pencil whipped".

We play 10-10-10 nassau and 5 junk.But we also have reverse junk such as if you get the greenie on par 3 you must make par or you reverse.Also 4 putt is reverse as is double par or worse.

      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.

      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
