If your family enjoys the game of golf, here is the perfect game for a rainy day when you cannot be on the actual course. Play Nine is the card game of golf for ages eight through adult and can be played with two to six players. The game includes game instructions, two decks of cards, score cards, and a pencil.

To prepare your course, deal each player eight cards, face down. Keeping cards face down, each player arranges cards into two rows of four cards across, creating an individual playing area. Remaining cards are in face-down stack in the center; and the top card is turned over to form a discard pile.

Players tee off by turning over any two cards. The tee shot is the only time two cards are turned over. After teeing off, the player to the left of the dealer starts play. The player may choose to draw the top card from the deck or from the discard pile. Player may use the drawn card to replace either a face up or facedown card and discard the replaced card. After discarding, play passes clockwise to the next player.

The game instructions include configurations that will shave strokes off your score. You can improve your score by paying close attention to the lie of your cards! This can be challenging to learn at first; but after a couple holes, you will learn how to test the savviest golfer. Play continues for nine holes. After the last hole, scores for all nine holes are tallied and the lowest score wins!
