What game can you play with three players?
I’ve always been stumped when trying to come up with a game to play with just three players. The other day one of my starters recommended we try “quota.” You can play it with any amount of players, but it’s one of the few games that work well for a threesome.
How to play: Everyone subtracts his or her handicap from 36. For example, my handicap is 6 (36-6 = 30) my quota is 30. Then points are awarded after each hole.
Eagle = 8pts
Birdie = 4pts
Par = 2pts
Bogey = 1pt
Double or higher can be decided based on the skill levels. The way my starter plays, double bogeys or higher are “0.” When I play with other single digit handicaps we go into negative points.
No handicaps are applied to the points awarded. The winner is the person who exceeds their quota by the greatest number of points. Play or quarters, dollars, or lunch afterwards, it makes for some fun competition.
