Match-Putt Game

Hone your putting when playing match play events

All games are played under Match Play rules, where the result of each game is determined by the number of holes won.  A player or team wins win they are up by more than there are holes to play.  The game can be modified at parties for “Fourball” or “Foursomes” by creating groups of two-person teams.

Match - Putt tournament with winners

"Fourball" play is a match in which each member of the two-man team plays their own ball. Four balls are in play per hole with each of the four players competing. The team whose player has the lowest score on that hole wins the hole. Should players from each team tie for the best score, the hole is halved.


"Foursomes" play is a match where two golfers play together against two other golfers and each team plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (player A hits tee shot, player B hits the second shot, etc.) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting the tee shot on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the tee shot on the even-numbered holes. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Teams and Pairings can be set by team Captains or drawing numbers.

Match-Putt was designed to take advantage of the unique features of Provoto Putting Systems. The game can also be played anytime there are three different adjacent hole patterns. 
  • A player wins when they are up by more than there are holes to play.

  • Provoto hole reducers are used to create the 3" and 2" hole sizes 

  • Par number represents the maximum number of putts for each hole, if par isn't made, post boggy 

  • Each round of 6 holes should be able to complete within 10 to 12 minutes 

  • (18 holes) Round 1- level; Round 2- R to L break; Round 3- L to R break

Match-Putt uses the inserts to create different degrees of difficulty.  The standard, 4¼” hole is a Par 2, the 3” insert a Par 3, and the 2” insert a Par 4, see sample score card. Holes not pared will receive a bogy on the score card, Repeating the sequence for a total of 6 holes. Having the putting surface adjusted (1) level, (2) right to left break and (3) left to right break can extend the game to 18 holes. The first round with a level surface, the second round with a right to left break and the last round with a left to right break.  Turning the adjustment knobs 4-6 quarter turns from a level putting surface will create an outside edge breaking putt to the hole.
