Multiple-game game board with golf putting selecting means Patent #: 4053155
AbstractA golf putting game is played with regular golf balls and clubs on an elongated rectangular playing area. At the end of the playing area distal the putting lines is a shallow ramp. Several holes or depressions in the surface of the ramp, called "bunkers" in the game, act as ball traps. The playing area is conveniently made up in the form of a roll-up mat. The game itself has two phases. In phase one, the players attempt to putt balls into one of the bunkers to accumulate points. Phase two of the game has three embodiments, in all of which the players attempt to land their putts in one of the last three rectangles defined by the transverse lines to score. Bunker balls do not count in phase two. Score points are counted only at the end of a round of play in two of the embodiments, which encourages strategy and "bumping" of opponents' balls out of the score rectangles. The winning team is the first to reach a certain total score in two of the phase two embodiments, and is the team with the most points after eight rounds in the other.
