""Play Dropgolf - how, when and why

  • Walk gently past the first tee and all other tees
  • Start playing between 100 and 10 meters from the green.
  • Drop your golf ball wherever you like, your playing partners drop theirs at the same spot. Finish the whole as you normally would.
  • You can use a special Dropgolf Scorecard.

Dropgolf® has been developed to increase the interest in more and better golf at ALL courses by focusing on the short game.

Drop zone Drop your golf ball alternately at different distances and places; on the fairway, in the rough, maybe even behind the green. Be a bit creative when that is suitable. Don't drop your golf ball closer than 10 meters/yards from the edge of the green unless you drop it in a bunker. It is OK to place the ball in a bunker when you play more than one person.

The 100 meters/yards distance is often marked by a red marker.
Why 100 meters - Read more at Yes, but item 4

Your co-players drop their golf balls at the same spot and then you all continue and finish the hole as you normally would have done. You take turns at starting independent of results at the previous hole.
