Most of us are at home at the moment and there’s been a lot of talk about how to practise golf with the confines of our current space.
Gila Golfers checked out the Chippo and we must say it was a whole lotta fun. Big thanks to our buddies at Buggy Mates for hooking us up with a set.
Chippo is the viral new golf game for beach, backyard, tailgate, office and clubhouse – a patented, mind-blowing mash-up of golf and traditional backyard games! It has combined the old fashioned, beer-slugging, tailgate-dominating, sunshine-basking goodness of games like cornhole with the gentlemanly, giddiness-inducing, side-betting beauty of golf.
How to play Chippo with your buddies!
Step One:Set up the boards as depicted in the video above.
Step Two: Find three friends (or highly skilled pets) and start chipping!
Gameplay is reminiscent of cornhole, washers or horseshoes, but with some cool new twists. Flip a coin to start, winner goes first. Here’s how scoring works for 1.) Match Play; 2.) Cornhole-style and 3.) “Six Ball” scoring:
1 point: Just hit the board on a fly. Boardie.
3 points:Drain your shot in the larger center hole. 3-Hole.
5 points: Send the ball to its home in either top corner hole. 5-Hole.
2x points: If you’re a surgeon with a sixty degree wedge, bounce your shot off the chipping mat for double (2, 6 or 10) points. Bounce Shot.
Note: If your shot hits the Chippo board on a fly and the ball then bounces or rolls into the 3-Hole or the 5-Hole, you do get the 3 or 5 points for getting that shot in the hole. Like golf, the ball just needs to end up in the hole. Go to your home ball.
