This game can be played in any open area. Use markers to identify a start point for each team
Split the group into teams (preferably of even numbers). Give each group one iron. Give each player 2,3 or 4 balls (players should mark their balls to tell them from others in the group. Give each group a yellow ball / football / cone to be used as the ?jack?
Leaders place the 'jack' a suitable distance away from the start point
Players take it in turn to chip their balls as close to the 'jack' as possible until all the balls have been hit. The player closest to the 'jack'? scores one point for every ball that is closer than any of his/her opponents. The player with the most points after a set period of time or number of 'ends' wins.

Mark out several 'clockfaces' using cones, paper or other suitable markers. Place a target (cone, bean bag, golf hole etc) at the centre of each 'clockface'. Split the group into teams and send each team to a 'clockface'. Teams stand at 'one o'clock' in a line. Give each team one club and give each player one ball.
The first player putts the ball towards the target. If they hit the target they move onto 2 o'clock but if they miss they stay at 1 o'clock and join the back of the line
The second player putts, then the third, and so on. Players cannot move round until they have hit the target. The first player who makes it round to 12 o'clock wins

Players chip into the target scoring points for various sections of the target. Highest score after a certain amount of shots/time wins.
