In this humorous golf game each player is issued one foot of string for every shot on his handicap. During the round, players can move their ball a distance up to and including the length of the string—BUT—they must cut that same distance from the string. As the round goes on, the string gets shorter …
I have seen a variant of this in some charity golf outings I have played. Players are able to buy pieces of string (with the money going to the charity, of course) to aid them in their round. Each string is a one-time-use sort of thing, so it helps to buy a pocketful.
As noted in the comments below, it also could be used as an inexpensive filler for the goodies bag at outings.
