Dart Board Rules for Golf Darts.
The game can be played with any number of players that you want. The game is very fast, with a limit of just 3 shots for each hole, making the rules for Darts Golf one of the simplest darts games available. You can play either 9 or 18 hole games. A two player, 9 hole game takes 5 or less minutes to play.
The Object of the game: Just like the real game of golf, the object here is to finish each hole with the lowest number of shots possible. At the end of either 19 or 8 holes, whichever player has the lowest score is the winner.
The Scoring of the game: Even though the darts games rules are very simple for this game there are still one or two rules that you have to follow. The names of the players are written in order across the board on the top. Usually the order is determined by each player throwing a dart, with the closest one to the bullseye going first. Playing order for this game doesn't make any difference. To finish the game, every player gets the same amount of throws.
The number of holes that have been agreed upon is written in order on the left hand side of the board (either 1 through 18 or 1 through 9). For every hole that is played a running total is made and written down next to the hole number for that player's column.
In the image it shows exactly where on the dartboard you get your points.
The outer double ring (A) is the hole in one and the inner triple ring (B) is 2 strokes. The thin wedge (C) that is in between the triples ring and bullseye is 3 strokes, while the thick wedge (D) that is between the triples and double ring is 4 strokes. If you entirely miss the number (E) it counts as 5 strokes, which is the worst possible score you can get on a hole.
The Play: The first hole is started by the first player by throwing for ones. The player can elect to throw three, two or one dart at the hole. No matter how many darts get thrown, the dart that counts is the last one thrown. As an example, a player throws his first dart. It lands into the thin 1 wedge (C), which scores 3 points. The player is dissatisfied with the score, so throws his last two darts. One hits the tripe (B) while the other entirely misses (E). Now his score for the hole is 5. He can't count his first dart thrown because he continued to throw. If the first dart throw would have satisfied him, he could have kept his 3 score and not thrown his last two darts.
The other players remaining play in order on the first hole. Then the second hole gets played when they get around to the first player again. The number 2 is their target number, they continue in this manner throwing each round at the next number i.e 3, 4, 5, 6 etc until all 9 or 18 holes have been played.
Strategy: This game doesn't have a lot of strategy. However, you need to be satisfied with your scores, unless you happen to be quite good. If you don't, you could end up just like my above example.
