The days of tailgates and tossing a beer pong ball into a cup after it rolled across the floor feel like ancient history after months of social distancing. But it doesn’t mean you don’t miss them. This PutterBall backyard game is the ultimate way to ease back into summer with beer pong-style fun without the germ exchange.

PutterBall combines golf putting and beer pong for a low-key activity perfect for home or future tailgates. This set comes with the PutterBall turf board, two mini-golf putters, two balls, and 12 turf hole covers for each hole you can score in. It folds down to a compact 13-pound set, so it’s easy to bring along anywhere.

Here’s how it works. You and your buddies grab the golf putters and put the ball the same way you throw it in pong, aiming for one of your six holes. The holes are traditional golf turf holes, so no drinks are contaminated in the process. Cover holes you score with included turf hole covers and watch your buddy chug their beer while they lose. 

Being good at golf is not a prerequisite for this game, which is great since your shot will probably only get worse as the drinks go down. Unlike traditional beer pong, this game isn’t a snooze without the beer; you can leave the drinks behind and play a casual game of putt-putt without going to a crowded course.

Golf Digest said PutterBall “looks pretty awesome,” which is exactly the look you want when you’re trying to attract some new friends at a tailgate. It’s easy to learn, so new players can hop in as quickly as they can grab a putter.

This set is the perfect way to ease back into summer while still avoiding germ exchange. You can drink and get competitive, while each player putts with 12 feet between them. This PutterBall set is 10% off today and when you use the code PUTTER10 at checkout, you’ll get an extra $10 off.
