Golf Cornhole Game – Golf Meets Cornhole

If you’re not familiar with the Golf Cornhole Game, it can be described as a spinoff of the traditional cornhole bean bag toss game. The difference is instead of using bean bags, you’ll be putting/chipping a golf ball with the hopes of getting it into a scoring hole on a board 15 feet away. In Golf Cornhole Game – Golf Meets Cornhole, you’ll explore the equipment you need, how to play, and how points are scored in golf cornhole, or as you might see it spelled corn hole.

A simple game that can give hours of fun for most ages, golfers and non-golfers alike. It’s simple enough that even children can play with a little coaching.

How To Play Golf Cornhole

Setting Up

  • There will be two teams of two players, one team per board. You can also play 1 person per team or even play alone. 
  • Set the boards up 15 feet apart.  You can always have them closer or further away depending on the skill level of the players.

Play

There are various ways to play Golf Cornhole – here is one way.

  • Decide which team will go first. 
  • The first player on the team takes 3 turns.  Add the points for all 3 turns (see scoring below). 
  • The second person on the same team then takes 3 turns and add the points as the previous player did.  
  • Whichever player on the team scored the highest points are the points for that team.
  • After both players have gone it is the other team’s turn.  Played exactly like the previous team each player takes 3 turns and again the highest points are used.
  • The scoring points go to one team; the one that had the highest points.  But not all the points are given.  The score for the lowest team is subtracted from the higher team and that is how many points are scored for that round.

How Are Points Made

1 point – Hitting the board

1 point – Getting the ball into a hole but it bounces out

3 points – Getting the ball goes into the big hole

5 points – Getting the ball into the small hole
