Par-Golf (1965)

Board Game Rank: Not Ranked


"A game which simulates with uncanny accuracy a round of golf over a full 18-hole golf course.

"Par-Golf is a first class family entertainment as well as a challenging diversion for the keen golfer, whether "rabbit" or scratchman."

Those taking part decide whether they wish to play as professional golfers for the par score of 73, or ordinary club amateurs taking between 80 and 100 strokes for a round.

Depending on their situation and the course of play, players draw from either the 52 card pack of Fairway cards, or the 40 card pack of Hazard cards.

Types of games to play include Match Play, Playing to beat "par", Stroke Play, and The Stableford Game.

I collect golf board games, and this game is very good. Wonderful graphics and good card play. I prefer the total card play version rather than the spinner version.

Everything's there, one token is broken but there, box shows its age. Brought with me from Scotland as a kid.

Pretty good card based golf game inherited from parents. You choose which club you want to play your shot, then pick a card and move your ball the corresponding number. Gives realistic scores for a round, whether you play as a professional (normally around par score) or amateur (normally up to 10 over). Can also play solo against the dummy player (called Angus MacDummy).
