Wolf

Wolf is a golf betting game where players take turns being the Wolf. After teeing off, the Wolf can choose to team up with one of the other three players, or the Wolf can decide to play the hole alone for the chance to win more points. Points are awarded based on which team wins the hole, and the player with the most points at the round's end is the winner.

Wolf is a betting game that is included in the 18Birdies app for Premium Members.

Match Play

Match Play is golf's most traditional scoring system. Match play scoring in golf is as simple as can be. Golfers compete hole-by-hole and holes can either be won by one of the players or tied (halved). Once a player is ahead by more holes than there are left to play, that player wins the match.

Match Play is a betting game that is included in the 18Birdies app for Premium Members.

Nassau

The most popular of all golf betting games, Nassau, can trace its origins all the way back to 1896 when a member of Nassau Country Club developed a more “gentlemanly way of playing.” Nassau breaks the round into three separate bets: one for the front nine, one for the back nine, and one for the entire round.

18Birdies Premium Members can play the Nassau betting game using the app.
