Official Rules of Hillbilly Golf


Hillbilly golf is an outdoor game that is rising in popularity across the country and is featured at more and more outdoor parties every year. It is sometimes known as ladder golf.


  • Two Hillbilly Golf ladders, each with three two-foot crossbars that are one foot apart, and at least two sets of three Bolos.

Set Up

  • Ladders are to be placed 15 feet apart from each other. Each team is to receive one set of Bolos. Have one player from each team stand by each ladder.

Point System

  • Each step up from the ground is worth one point. The top crossbar is worth three points, the middle is worth two, and the lowest is worth one. If one team gets all three Bolos to stay on the ladder during one turn, then an additional point is rewarded.


  • It is up to the players to determine who goes first in Hillbilly Golf. Each player from one ladder takes turns throwing one Bolo at a time at the opposite ladder. After all the Bolos are at the second ladder and points are added up, the players from this ladder toss them back to the other ladder and add up those points. The process repeats itself.

Winning the Game

  • The winner of the game is the first team to reach exactly 21 points, no more and no less.
