Hillbilly Golf, Ladder Toss, ladder Golf, Bolo Toss or what ever you want to call it is a fun game. The rules resembles the Cornhole game. You have two ladders made out of PVC pipe, and six Bolos (golf balls on rope). The idea is to wrap your bolos around one of the steps of the ladder. Hillbilly Golf can be played with 2 or 4 people.
How to play Hillbilly Golf
"Official rules call for 15 feet between ladders but Indiana rules call for 21 feet. It is up to you, maybe 15' for children is okay but adults can suck it up and play at 21.
If you are playing with 2 people the players will walk back and forth between rounds. If you have 4 players then everyone will stay in one spot. With 4 players there are two teams. One team member on each side by a golf ladder.
Like cornhole, Hillbilly Golf is played in innings, rounds or what ever you want to call them. One team member from each team take 3 Bolos each. After deciding who will go first that person will toss the Bolo at the opposing side ladder. While throwing your Bolo the payer can not move past the ladder on the throwing side. There are no rules to how the golf ball needs to be thrown, just common sense. There is not penalty for a golf ball hitting the ground before attaching to the ladder. The important part is where it ends up.
Hillbilly Golf Scoring
The point system is fairly simple.
- Top step= 3 point
- Middle step= 2 point
- Bottom step= 1 point
See I told ya! The confusing part comes now. This is a cancel out system, or at least Indiana Hillbilly Golf is. Onle one team scores per round. Let's say that team "Big Balls" has 2 bolos on the middle step and one on the bottom. Team 3 "Blue Balls" has 1 bolo on the top step, 1 on the middle and onethat landed in the grass after smacking the the drunk guy not paying attention. This is how it would break down for that round:
Team Big Balls has 5 points, team Blue Balls has 5 points. Now that would be a push so no points given.
Now lets say team Big Balls got 2 Bolos on top step and 1 in middle and Team Blue Balls got 1 Bolo on the top step and 2 on the bottom. This is how it would break down:
Team Big Balls would have 8 points and team Blue Balls would have 5 point. So at the end of that round team Big Balls would get 3 points.
Now anything goes, you are more than welcome to knock off your opponents Bolos with yours. You do not count points until all Bolos from the round are thrown. Anything not on a ladder step is worth a big fat O. You can mess with the thrower as much as you want as long as you don't touch them.
Here are a couple other options for Hillbilly Golf: If a player throws short and doesn't make it to the Hillbilly Golf ladder the other players are required to laugh at them, make them kill their beer or anything else that will work them over.
Warnings: People like to drink when playing Hillbilly Golf. If you do the above please expect to get a Bolo to the nuts. This has happened to me more than once. On a serious note you do have golf balls flying around. Make sure there are no kids running around close by while playing this game. If children are playing you should always have an adult with them at all times.
