Let’s Play Golf! - Instructions

  • The objective of this game, like golf, is for the teams to score the lowest possible score that they can

  • The teams will be presented with 9 multi-choice questions and answers (one at a time)

  • Having seen the questions and possible answers the team must decide how certain they are that they know the answer. They only have 30 seconds to decide this!

  • If the team think they know the answer for certain they should just ring the corresponding letter on their ‘answer slips’ for each hole and present this slip to the tutor.

  • If a team is not certain and think that the answer could be one of two possible answers then the team can ring both answers.

  • If the team is very uncertain, they can ring 3 possible answers. (They can not ring all four)

Scoring per hole:

  • Team rings only one answer and gets that answer correct – ( -2, Eagle)

  • Team rings two answers and one of them is correct – (-1, Birdie)

  • Team rings 3 answers and one of them is correct (0, par)

  • Team rings 3 answers and none of them is correct (+1, Bogey)

  • Team rings two answers and none them is correct – (+2, Double Bogey)

  • Team rings only one answer and that answer is incorrect – ( +3, Triple Bogey)
