Gator Golf Review (Goliath Games)

Gator Golf
What It Is

The classic game of Gator Golf is back for a new generation of kids. Just like the original, you've got to hit your ball through the Gator's mouth and into his tail to score. The gator will then flip the ball out with his tail. 

You're supposed to be one club-distance away from the gator before you take your shot. (But we think house rules can apply.) If you sink the putt, you score a point. Keep track of your score with the bird scorekeepers on the gator's head. There are four birds, one for each golf ball color. Turn your bird to the next highest number each time you score. If you don't sink the putt, your turn is over, and you have to leave your ball wherever it stopped, putting from that location on your next turn.

The original version of Gator Golf was motorized, but this one is not. So you'll need to reset the gator's mouth before each turn. If you don't have a clear shot of the gator's mouth, you can use your turn to set up a clear shot for your next turn.

The first player to reach three points wins. 

Is It Fun?

This brings the fun of mini golf to your living room, and parents who remember playing the original as kids will have fun sharing the game with their own kids. It's a little bit different than the original, but the basic gameplay is the same and still easy to learn. We like the addition of the built-in scorekeepers to make it easy for kids to see who is winning.

Who It’s For

Gator Golf is for two to four players ages 3 and up.
