How to play golf pong

The Setup

Now your ChipChugUK boards have arrived its time to have some fun! Place the boards around 9 feet (shorter or longer depending on difficulty) apart but offset from each other shown below, if you are playing with a lefty simply make the offset between hitting mat and board larger. If playing on grass the chipping mats are optional. Picking teams: usually Golf Pong is played with 2 teams of 2 but you can have as many people on a team as you’d like. Just take turns chipping! Fill all 10 cups on each board to the second line (about quarter of the way up). This should take just under 2 pints per team.

The Rules

  • Deciding who goes first is easy, the oldest, therefore wisest player choses an end and takes the first chip.

  • The team that is going first will have the three golf pong balls (can be up played with up to 5 balls). One person on the team will take their turn trying to chip all balls into the opponent’s solo cups.

  • After their turn, when a ball is sunk, that team must remove the cup/s from the pyramid, drink the beer, and set the cup/s aside. The ball is allowed to bounce, or it can go directly into the cup, no swatting, blowing or fingering allowed (These are not made up, google it).

  • If a player sinks all three of their balls the opposing team proceed to drink the contents and place the cups aside but the shooter gets another 3 shots.

  • After sinking a few cups there will be empty holes on the ChipChugUK board, here you can utilize your two rerack opportunities. This can help speed up play and bring the cups closer together. Below are a few of the most common rerack formations.

  • The game goes on until one team has no cups left or you can set a time limit (30min) and the team with the most chips in wins. The team that wins the game can celebrate while the losing team has to finish all the winners remaining cups.
