The 3 Best-Dang Golf-Themed Yard Games on the Market

Dirt-Nation! Summer is here. And it’s time to get yourself to a body of water, a slab of sand, or some nice lush green grass and get after it!

If you’re like us, you’ve got golf on the mind ALL the time. With these golf-themed yard games you can have some fun with the whole family while still working on your game! (They won’t even know you’re practicing).

1. Sawgrass Remastered

The crowd is going wild as you walk to the 17th tee on the final round of the Players. It’s a true cinderella story unfolding before your eyes. Rickie just finished 16 with a 3. Your three-shot lead is cut to one with the roars heard just a few hundred steps behind you. You’ve got two of the most intimidating holes in golf left. On 17, one swing or one gust of wind can be the difference between carrying home the trophy to golf’s fifth major and nobody even knowing your name. If you ain’t first, you’re last.

Now imagine dunking that sucker into the water because you haven’t practiced on the Blue Wave Aqua Golf Backyard Golf Game like Rickie does. (How do YOU think he birdied it 3x in 2015?) The Blue Wave is on sale for under $50 bucks at HayNeedle, so if you dream big you’d better grab it while the grabbing is good.

2. The PuttSkee

It’s your favorite childhood arcade game combined with your favorite adulthood weekend getaway. How does it get any better than that!? Throw a party with this bad boy on the deck, in the yard, or by the pool, and you’re gonna have people talking about you for months on end. Use the Navigator Training Aid with it, and that 100 hole will be quivering! You can get yourself a PuttSkee HERE!


3. Golf Pong

WARNING: Don’t play this game with Jimmy Skulls-A-Lot. Especially if good golfers get with bad golfers and you collectively decide it’s more realistic to use real golf balls. For the better player who has control of his or her low-point, it can be a real fun way to work on your pitching and distance control skills. For Mr. Watch-Out-Windows, it can be a real fun way to work on your liver tolerance.

Easiest way to play? Set a table on each side with solo cups full of your favorite beverage. When the opposing team makes it in the big buckets, drink the corresponding cup on the table. Play until all the cups are empty.


To you, your family, your summer, your friends, your friends’ friends, and to all of your golf games!
