Ranking The Best Backyard Golf Games For Barbecues, Tailgates, And Day Drinking

Presented in partnership with ChippoGolf…

Here at BroBible, we strive to bring you products and stories that make your life more chill. It’s a modus operandi we eat, sleep, and breathe every single day, all day long. That’s why we love the cornhole + beer pong + golf craze that’s taken the Internet by storm as we enter summer. It seems like every week or two another golf-inspired party game becomes a viral trend — First it was Chippo, with a MONSTER Kickstarter campaign a couple of years ago. Then it was Putter Pong, which is like skeeball, beer pong, and putt-putt wrapped up in one game.

The best part about these games? You can play them with friends and almost no skill is required. It’s as easy as cornhole or beer pong, meant to be played at the beach or in the backyard while you crack open a couple cold ones with the boys. All of these are the perfect gift for that golfer-in-the-family who’s impossible to buy for.

And now that Chippo has just continued to boom, we’ve got something totally awesome that’s sure to help your backyard BBQs this summer: 15% off Chippo sets when using our special code ‘RIPPINIT’.

ChippoGolf’s a sponsor of BroBible’s golf podcast RIPPIN’ IT, hosted by golf commentator George Savaricas and PGA golfer Harold Varner III. Available on all major streaming platforms, as well as YouTube, you can keep up with the show on both Twitter and Instagram.

Plus, the Perfect Practice Putting Mat comes in different lengths and sizes — Compact, Standard, XL — so you can work on those 12-foot-long putts, as well as those shorter (but always tricky) two-footers.

Putter Pong was created by three fraternity brothers who had the desire to combine two of their favorite activities: putting and skeeball. But let’s be real — You see that pyramid of holes and automatically think “beer pong.”  It comes with a detachable putter and 4 golf balls so you’re ready to start playing out of the box.

Here at BroBible, we’ve teamed up with the dudes at Putter Pong to offer a special discount for BroBible readers — 10% off, applied with the code BROBIBLE101.


The latest player in the market. Beer Pong Golf, a backyard/tailgate/beach game that combines beer pong with cornhole. You chip a golf ball at a board with a rack of beer pong cups. It’s also customizable with a place for plaques for your favorite sports team — perfect for tailgating.
