Compare golf and Dropgolf
In classic golf, you are supposed to avoid all hindrances and play the straightest (smartest) way from tee to green.
In Dropgolf, you also walk the whole course, but you
start playing between 100 and 10 meters from the green. You play Dropgolf like classic golf but has a different logic. You may well choose hindrances and challenging
lies as drop-and-start places. Read more on how to play Dropgolf.
Dropgolf is excellent for Business golf and there are several forms of competitions.
Compare Par 3 courses and Dropgolf
Dropgolf is for all courses
Variation is a fun challenge
Par 3 courses are mini versions of classic golf and as the image on the left shows, you always start at the same place.
In Dropgolf you can start playing the same hole at many different spots - the image shows a few examples - and that could prove to be quite a challenge, and fun.
When you play Dropgolf at 18 hole courses you get time to chat, get some exercise and enjoy nature.
And many say - you don't risk losing your face at the first tee :-)
