Featured Game for Threesome

If your fourth player decides work is more important, what kind of game can you play to take the other’s money? In a threesome, one popular game is called Nine Point. So how do you score nine point, and how do you calculate payouts?

Nine Point is a fairly simple game that requires the use of a small amount of math. For every hole, there are a total of nine points to be awarded to the three golfers. To start simply, if all three players tie the hole, each person gets three points. On hole two, Player 1 birdies and Players 2 and 3 par. Point would be awarded as such: Player one receives five points and the others will take two points for the hole. In the event that there are three different scores, the lowest takes four points, second takes three points and the highest score still receives two points.

At the end of the round, points for each player are added up and then compared to the others’. Each player pays those who have more points at the end of the round.

So what is so fun about the game? Nine Point appeals to every golfer since points can be worth twenty-five cents, or they could each be twenty-five dollars. The amount of money for each point depends on the mutual agreement between all players before teeing off on the first hole. Now go have fun and take your friend’s, or customer’s, money!
