DIY Hillbilly Golf

Well, I’ve learned one thing over the past few weeks – yard games are awesome!  I’ve also come to the conclusion that every backyard needs a few fun yard games for entertainment.  And I’m here to show you that you don’t spend a fortune on outdoor games when you can easily make them yourself. 

So, lets recap.  We made Yard Jenga and Yardzee so now it’s time to make Hillbilly Golf.  Have you heard of this game before.  It’s also referred to as Ladder Golf and Hillbilly Horseshoes.  It doesn’t matter what you call it.  All that you need to know is easy to make and fun to play.

Step 2: To make the bolas, spray paint the golf balls.  Once the paint dries, place each ball in a vice and drill holes through center of each golf ball.  I used a 5/16″ drill bit for this to accommodate the size of the clothesline.

Step 4:  Cut the clothesline so each piece is 36″ inches.  Tie a knot so that inside knot is 20″ from end to end.
