Pub golf: A drinking game for the thirsty and competitive

Gatsby's pub storefront

The Screengolfers team recently discovered a game using the rules of Golf and applying them directly to the Pub culture. We all know that Golf and Pubs are closely related. It’s not a secret that Golf was created by the Scottish, and we can all guess the first discussion about it happened in a pub ūüėČ

With that in mind, some geniuses (or not) have combined the best of both worlds into a simple game called Pub Golf (also called bar golf)! So what is it?


What is pub golf and how do you play the game?

Imagine a game where you can drink your way through your favorite pubs and still win. That’s pub golf!

The rules are simple:

  1. Visit a series of pubs.
  2. Drink a designated drink at each pub.
  3. Finish each drink in as few sips/gulps as possible.

Each pub is assigned a par, the number of sips/gulps it should take to finish the drink. You’re under par if you complete a drink in fewer sips/gulps than the par. You’re over par if you chug a glass in more sips/gulps than the par.

The player with the lowest score at the end of the game wins.

A social experience

But pub golf is more than just a drinking game. It’s a social experience, a chance to explore local pubs and try new drinks with your friends. It’s also a challenge, testing your drinking skills and ability to hold your liquor.

So, if you’re looking for a fun way to drink, pub golf is the game for you. Here are a few tips to help you win:

  • Choose your drinks wisely. Some drinks, like pints of beer, are easier to drink quickly than others, like cocktails.
  • Practice your chugging skills. The faster you can drink, the better your score will be.
  • Don’t be afraid to take risks. Go for it if you can finish a drink in fewer sips/gulps than the par!
  • And most importantly, have fun! Pub golf is a game, so don’t take it too seriously.

Variations of Pub Golf

Here are a few entertaining variations on the basic pub golf rules:

  • Shot golf:¬†Players drink shots at each pub instead of pints. This makes the game much faster-paced and more challenging.
  • Beer pong golf:¬†Players play beer pong at each pub. If they make a cup, they finish their drink. If they miss a cup, they take a penalty sip/gulp.
  • Pub crawl golf:¬†Players visit several pubs in a row without stopping. This makes the game more challenging and adds to the excitement.

So whether you’re looking for a casual night out with friends or a competitive drinking challenge, pub golf is the game for you. Just remember to pace yourself and have fun!

Dont't drive drunk. Drink responsibly.
