Are you looking for a fun way to practice your putting skills and enjoy a game with friends and family?

Look no further than Golf Skittles, a hybrid game that combines the rules of skittles with the sport of golf. The best part? You don't need a lot of equipment – you can even use household objects to play.

What You'll Need:

1 x Golfway Play® putter 
1 x Golfway Play® ball 
12 x Golfway Play® cones
6 x 'Pins' (bottles or cans)


To get started, create an "alley" by marking out a section of the floor or ground that's roughly 20 feet by 5 feet. Position your "skittles" in the formation shown, which consists of three rows of three skittles each. Each turn starts with all the skittles standing, and you get three putts down the alley. The ball must be rolled by putting the length of the alley, not chipped.

If you knock down any skittles, you get to leave them on the ground and continue playing. If you get a "sticker" – where no skittles are left standing – all of them are reset to their original position. The maximum score in one turn is twenty-seven.


What's great about Golf Skittles is that you can combine the game with traditional golf balls and clubs, but keep in mind that the lighter or heavier the ball, the more you'll have to adjust the weight of your skittles.

This game is a fantastic way to improve your putting skills while also having fun with your friends and family. It's perfect for all ages and skill levels, and you can even set up your own "course" by creating different alley configurations. Plus, with minimal equipment required, it's an affordable way to enjoy a round of golf without having to visit a course.

In conclusion, Golf Skittles is a simple and enjoyable game that can help improve your putting skills. By combining the rules of skittles with golf, you can have a fun and competitive game that anyone can play. So grab some golf balls, find some household objects for your skittles, and get ready for some golf skittles fun!
