Can’t Putt This – This takes some of you back to the MC Hammer days! To start: The Can’t Putt This chip will be given to player furthest from the first hole when everyone is on the green and no one has putted.
After the first hole:
The player with the chip may challenge another player to a putt challenge! (both players must be a minimum of 2 flagsticks away from the hole). Closest to the hole in one putt wins.
Winner of the putt challenge can gain 1 good chip off his or her opponent or give 1 bad chip to his or her opponent.
Player with Can’t Putt This chip can challenge any opponent on any hole.
Must be decided before teeing off or this rule does not apply.
Must be used on last hole and all players 2 flag sticks away must participate. The loser keeps the Can’t Putt This chip!

Lady Chip – It can be used if one does not drive past the ladies tee and/or can be used if one misses a put from less than 2 feet away! Note: Ladies don’t be offended, We know you are better than most men! Men…if you are playing with ladies and a lady outdrives you, you must pay 2x the wager of the chip on the spot to the lady that outdrove you. She must ask for it after her drive. It is too late if she asks for it after her second shot. There is no exchange of the chip…just a given rule for the ladies.
BEER! MOST POPULAR CHIP! Every Par 3…the furthest from the pin on the opening drive gets the BEER CHIP. If it is in your pocket when the Beer Cart comes you must buy a round ! The only way you get rid of it is having a better shot on the next Par 3. What happens if the Beer Cart comes by again before the next Par 3? Answer: Then you are still buying.
