Golf Games: Sandies

No day on the beach, in Sandies, a point is awarded whenever a player gets up and down out of a bunker. Two points could be awarded for holing out.

The downside of this is that you actually have to be IN a bunker to score any points. So this game often is played with other similar bets in a game called “Junk.”

Other possible Junk bets:

Barkies: get a point for making par after hitting a tree
Greenies: score a point for being closest to the pin on the par 3s
Birdies: add a point for going one under par
An Arnie, or a Seve: get a point for making par while never being on the fairway the entire hole.

and so on.

  1. I had three great sandies last week.  Even better when you consider that our bunkers are a fine 50/50 fill dirt, leveling sand mix.  (maybe not quite that bad). 

    But at the same time, my percentage on bunker shots dropped last week.  I was probably at 90% or better from the greenside bunker to green, and I left 2 in the bunker in two rounds last week, and got all ball and flew the green in a 3rd.  Very frustrating, but I had some bad bunker shots a few months back and that lasted only a couple rounds before I was back on track, so hopefully that will be the case.

    Where I am really excelling right now is fairway bunkers.

    Best sandie was at Fighting Joe at Robert Trenk Jones Muscle Shoals – I went tee to fairway bunker to greenside bunker to 3 inches from hole to par.  Anyone looking to improve their sand game should go play Fighting Joe for 3 days- you either figure out how to play out of sand or you give up golf.
