It describes a bet in which the bettor must predict which horses will finish first, second and third in exact order.

This original meaning has almost nothing to do with the golf game trifecta.

In golf you do not want to bet who will win, but simply give points to the top three players on each hole as follows:

  • 1st – 6 points
  • 2nd – 4 points
  • 3rd – 2 points
  • 4th – none

The game Trifecta is ideally played in a foursome as a matchplay without any ties.

The player with the most points after 18 holes has won the match.

This way the last player on each hole will fall behind the most.

Use your handicaps to make it an even match between you and your friends. This game can create some exciting times. E. g. when one of your friends has a run and retakes the lead, you will probably get pumped and do anything you can to dethrone him.

I like this game a lot, because individual scores do not matter as much and even players with higher handicaps can threaten the lead.

In fact it may be even easier for them. This game once again will teach you how the individual standings of each player will affect your own game, although you are always just playing against the course and yourself.

Have a little fun and add some gamesmanship to the mix. Try talking it up on the tee when you are playing last. When it is your turn you play it safe, though.

  • Play a round of trifecta with your friends.
  • Trifecta is played in matchplay with no ties.
