  • This game consists of three cones which are placed at different distances throughout the course for each hole. Usually, one is placed 150 yards from the green, the other 50 yards from the green, and one is placed on the green, at about a 10-foot putt distance.
  • Two volunteers are placed at the tee box who sell yardage to the players. The prices are usually set by the organizers or the group playing. For example, a 150-yard cone may be worth $5, a 50-yard cone worth $15, and the cone straight to putting worth $30
  • This feature gives the players a competitive advantage on the holes and is a good way to generate money as well.
  • At the end of the game, the money collected may be donated to charity, given to the winner, or a 50/50 split between the winner and a charity of their choice.
