  • In this golf game, just like the real card game, lower scores are considered better than high scores.
  • The ranking of the hands from high to low is as follows:
  • Royal flush: Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10, all of the same suit
  • Straight flush: Five cards in sequence
  • Four of a kind
  • Full house: Three of a kind and with a pair
  • Flush: Five cards of the same suit, not necessarily in sequence
  • Straight: Five cards in sequence but of different suits
  • Three of a kind
  • Two pair
  • Pair
  • High card
  • All players ante a pre-determined amount of money (e.g., $1) for the round. One playing card is awarded for the ante.
  • An additional card is given to a player every time they one-putt.
  • Two cards are given to a player for a no-putt. This can be achieved in any way such as a hole-in-one, chip-in, hole-out from the fairway, etc.).
  • Players who three-putt add in the pre-decided amount into the pot.
  • Every time a player takes more than three-putts, they are required to add $1 to the pot and one card is also removed from their hand.
  • At the end of the round, all cards are dealt and the player with the best poker hand wins the pot.
