How to Play Wolf

Adding some Wolf to your golf game can enhance those competitive elements while keeping it fun and alive.


  • Step 1: Choose the order of play Choose the order of play by spinning a tee. Player one goes first on the first hole, player two on the second, and so on. The rotation stays the same -- you tee off after the same person on every hole.
  • Step 2: Wolf tees off Tee off first and you're the wolf. Announce whether you want a partner or are going "lone wolf."
  • Step 3: Wolf chooses partner Watch each of the other players shoot. Decide after each shot whether you want that player as a partner for the hole.
  • TIP: You must decide if you want a player to be your partner before the next player drives.
  • Step 4: Play the best shot Play the best shot between partners for each hole.
  • Step 5: Award points Award points for the lowest score. If the wolf has a partner, they get one point each. If the wolf is playing alone, he gets both points. If the wolf loses the hole, the other team gets one point each.
  • TIP: In the case of a tie, no points are awarded.
  • Step 6: Play the next hole Play the next hole -- the next golfer in the rotation becomes the wolf.
  • FACT: In 1971, Ian Colston played 22 rounds and five holes -- the greatest number of rounds played on foot in 24 hours.
