Games People Play - Pink Ball

Pink Ball - Team Style

Setup three or four teams of equal number of players.

Select one person from each team and group them to make a threesome or foursome. Having one person from each team in the foursome ensures fair and honest scoring.

Each foursome gets one pink ball to rotate between players. (Each foursome should have a few extra pink balls in case some get lost).

One the first hole, one player plays and scores the pink ball, the remaining players use their own balls. On subsequent holes, the pink ball rotates between each player in the foursome with each player recording their score with the pink ball (the pink ball score should be kept separate from the regular score. Note that regulation scoring should be used when scoring the pink ball - IE no moving the ball, all strokes count, add any OB penalties, and so forth.

Should a player lose a pink ball, drop a replacement pink ball and a 5 stroke penalty.

Play as many holes as possible so that each person in the foursome has an equal number of opportunities to play the pink ball (IE, on a nine hole course, the 9th hole will not use a pink ball).

After all foursomes, or threesomes, have completed, the teams (not the foursomes) will add up all their pink ball scores. The Team with the lowest cumulative score wins.

For example - A foursome having completed a 9 hole course, each player should have 2 holes played with the pink ball.
