The players continue until they either have all the balls on one of the dryers or one of them touches the machine. The last person to touch the dryer wins. The key to playing this golf party game is pace and ball speed. Any slow player cannot get a dryer all the way on a pair of dryers. An experienced player has to hit the ball with the right speed to get them both dry.
Drop Golf Ball Golf
This is a game that is both fun and challenging. Players get paired up randomly, then each team hits five shots into the woods.

Slam Dunk Golf is a lot of fun for groups of three or more players. One player starts the game, and as the other players are teeing off, the player at the teeing ground with the ball must attempt to throw it as far as possible. The player who throws the farthest wins the round. It’s a lot of fun for everyone involved. Just make sure to make the teeing ground as small as possible.
Pin The Ball
Pin the Ball is a fun new twist on a classic pin-the-green game. It involves getting your ball as close to the hole as possible, then taking turns passing the ball under the hole until it comes out. The winner is the person who ends up with the closest ball to the hole at the end of the round.
Two teams play this game. A player on each team hits their first shot into the hazard, then takes a stroke for each ball they hit until they either get all three balls in the hazard or take one of their opponent’s shots into the hazard. The team that takes the most shots into the hazard wins the match.
