Play by yourself or against others. Stroke play is golf at its most traditional. Play 9 or 18 holes(shots), add up the score, and then play again and do better!
This is for two players. Total score doesn’t matter here. Each hole(shot) matters. You want to win the hole. You want to beat the other person. Player with the most holes won is the winner. Shoot for the Eagles(2)… heck, shoot for the Hole-in-one(1).
You need a teammate for this game. Or, if you want to make it more fun, two teams of two. You and your teammate each get to take a shot each hole, and the best shot between each of you is the score for the team.
