The game will continue to play behind the scenes and any bets you have placed will stand. If you 'continue' you can still return to the game by selecting the game tab above.



Introduction

Welcome to Target Golf, a beautiful par three hole set against a dramatic coastal backdrop. Accuracy is the name of the game as the pros and amateurs battle it out to be king of the course. With trees, deep bunkers, heavy rough and open water waiting to punish loose shots, only the most skilful strikers of the ball will emerge victorious. Or will they?

Game Instructions

Like with a number of our other sports games the first thing you need to decide upon is whether to play a 'rapid' game or an 'in-play' game.  Playing a rapid game you place your initial bet and then watch the game play out. With an in-play game you can place more bets between shots but be quick as you only have 20 seconds to confirm between shots.

Next up is choosing your market. In total there are eight different to choose from. When you get to this stage, hover your mouse over each market to see a description and the points scoring system for each market. In the meantime, here's what's on offer:
  • Total Points: Each player will take one shot. The result of this market will be the aggregate of the points scored by each player, according to the Area Points scoring system
  • Pros/Amateurs: This is a group match bet and each player will take one shot. The three Pros play first, followed by the three Amateurs. The result will be the difference between the aggregate of points scored by the pros over the aggregate of points scored by the amateurs, according to the Area Points scoring system
  • Ace: This is a Green performance market and each player will take one shot. The result will be the aggregate of the points scored by each player, according to the Ace Points scoring system
  • Splash Index: This is a Water performance market and each player takes one shot. The result will be determined by the number of balls that land in the water, according to the Splash Points scoring system
  • Total Skins: Players take simultaneous shots and will hit a total of six shots each. The result will be the total number of skins won after every round of shots had been completed. If a hole is not won 'outright', the skins will carry on to the next hole. If there is no 'outright' winner on round six, only skins won up to that point will be counted. If all six rounds are tied, the result will be 0
  • Player Skins: Players take simultaneous shots and will hit a total of six shots each. The result will be the total number of skins won by the player you have chosen to bet on. If a hole is not won 'outright', the skins will carry on to the next hole. If there is no 'outright' winner in round six, only skins won up to that point will be counted. If all six rounds are tied, the result will be 0
  • Player Win Index: Each player takes one shot. The result will be determined by how close each player's shots finishes to the hole, with the winner being the closest. Points are awarded according to the Player Wins Index scoring system. Balls on the green will always be considered closer than those not on the green
  • Match Bets: Choose two players to play against each other. Each player will take one shot. The result will be the difference between the points scored by each player, based on the Area Points scoring system

The Players

There are three pro players and three amateur players, all with varying degrees of accuracy. At the same stage as you select whether to play a 'rapid' game or an 'in-play' game you will be given the opportunity meet the players. By clicking through to this you will be able to see the accuracy percentage of each player as well as some probability information – namely the number of times each player will hit an area on the course from 1,000 shots. For example the number of times you would expect Tiger to get a Hole in One from 1,000 tries.
Please note: spread betting can result in losses greater than your initial deposit or credit limit. For more information see our Risk Disclosure Notice.
