If you are looking for some extra golf competition, Match Play is perfect for you!

 

The Way It’s Played

Match play is a whole different game than stroke play. In stroke play, golfers accumulate strokes over the course of 18 holes. The golfer with the fewest strokes at the completion of the round wins. In match play, each hole is a separate competition. The player with the fewest strokes on an individual hole wins that hole; the player winning the most holes wins the match.

 

The stroke total for 18 holes simply doesn’t matter in match play. Stroke play is more a player vs. the course approach; match play is directly player vs. player, or side vs. side. There is one opponent you must beat, and that’s the opponent you’re facing in the match you’re playing right now.
