The organizers of a Dropgolf competition mark the Dropbox at each whole with a Dropgolf aiming stick, or other marker, where all participants start. Players then drop their ball within one meter to the left of the aiming stick.
The Dropbox can be on the fairway, in a bunker, in the (semi-)rough, behind some bushes or even behind a green. Read about Dropgolf's portable marker package
The Dropgolf Handicap index
It is based on half your standard hcp index, rounded upwards to the nearest higher integer. (e g 6.2 and 6,7 becomes 7)
In stroke play, it doesn't matter on which holes you have an extra stroke.
In match play, the handicap bonus is allotted to holes where the
player with the lower hcp index decides where to drop the ball. These handicap strokes are distributed in order from the first hole or second if the lower handicapped player starts at that hole.
The maximum number of handicap strokes is nine.
As a member of Dropgolf, you can save your scores and see average results of your rounds.
Dropgolf increases your accuracy
Drop two balls each and choose which one to put with. Was the second attempt more successful?
Double Drop is a fun alternative and could also be used if the party ahead moves too slowly.
If a club wants its members to improve their short game golf, it is important to
