Golf Tee Peg Game

Golf Tee Peg Game

The golf tee peg game is a wood board game that has been around for quite some time but you don’t have to use golf peg tees though most people do, as they are easily obtainable and available in different colors. The golf tee peg game is a portable game that offers a triangular wooden board that is drilled with just 15 holes into which are inserted golf tee pegs. 

The aim of the game

The aim of the golf tee peg game is to remove all the tees except one in a series of moves. Therefore, at the start of the game all the holes will be filled with golf tees with the exception of one hole and the golf tee peg game is quite similar in play to checkers. To play the game, one golf tee has to jump over another tee into the empty hole and the golf tee peg that has been jumped over is then removed from the board. This continues until there are no more pegs remaining on the board but one and then the puzzle has been completed.

This may sound really easy in theory; however, in actuality it can be quite difficult to achieve and requires ingenuity to consider the moves ahead as well as the current move. Otherwise you will find yourself at one end of a board when some of the pieces are at the other end of the golf tee peg game board and you are unable to get back to them in which case it means that you would have to start again!

Is there a solution?

Absolutely! In fact some people have taken the time and trouble to work out a proper strategy that works and you can obtain the formulas online, but surely this defeats the object as the beauty of the golf tee peg game is that it helps with the following skills:

  • Analytical skills
  • Developing acumen
  • Developing awareness
  • Co-ordination skills
  • Forward planning
  • Strategic planning skills

All these skills are very useful in life, not just in game playing and in fact, encouraging children to play golf tee peg games can help them develop these abilities and will give them a kick start in these extremely useful cognitive abilities that will serve them well throughout their lives in school and adulthood.

This is so frustrating!

When you first start to play the golf tee peg game you may find yourself a little frustrated as it can take a bit of time to get the hang of it, however many games commercially sold have at least one cheat sheet with them and this will save your sanity if you need to use it. As there are literally thousands of moves available in the golf tee peg game, it can take some considerable time to break the code, so don’t be afraid to use the cheat sheet occasionally to give yourself a boost. After all, if the game is just too hard you are unlikely to persevere and all those skills will just fall by the wayside. Good luck!
