June 11, 2018

Father’s Day weekend is right around the corner, which means summer weather and family time! Ladder golf is a fun and portable yard game, making it a great addition to your backyard, summer cottage or tailgate activities.

Ladder golf is similar to horseshoes in terms of rules. Using a PVC “ladder” structure and golf ball “bolas” -- players score points by landing their bolas on different rungs of the ladders. Here’s a great breakdown of the rules if you’ve never played.
