Fun Game No.1 - 'Brolly Golf'

Fun Game No.1 - ‘Brolly Golf’

What is it?

‘Brolly Golf’ is a fun game that can be played with friends and family almost anywhere. All it requires is a Golphin golf club (preferably a 7-iron), some balls, an umbrella and an open and safe grassy area. Playing it will help develop balance, rhythm, timing and hand eye co-ordination and distance control. It’s a really fantastic way for you to learn how to chip a ball into a target area.

How to play

Use jumpers to mark your starting position and safety standing position, then put your brolly open and upside down on the ground. Place it approximately three yards from your starting position and take it in turns to try to chip your ball into the brolly using your Golphin clubs and Flipper golf balls. The player or team with most balls in the brolly are the winners.

The outcomes

This game is great for family and friend engagement, not to mention building confidence. It’s good to praise effort over performance and will instil the values of continuing to try and not giving up. Move the brolly closer or further away to make it easier / harder as desired or make it a timed game, with the most balls in the brolly or ‘first to five’ etc to make it fun and varied.
