OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Create your own game of golf right in the backyard with Birdie Golf. In this outdoor game that the whole family can play, golfers compete to see who can hit their Birdie closest to the flag. To play, toss the flag and see where it lands. That's now the "hole" you're aiming for. Players take turns setting up their Birdies (a cross between a foam golf ball and a Badminton Birdie) and giving the golf club a swing. Once all players have taken a turn, tilt the flag to see who scores. If your Birdie is in the flag's ring, you made it in the "hole". Then toss the flag again to set up the next hole.

That's the basic gist of the game, although there aren't specific instructions for how to play. So if your family wanted to create different rules, you definitely could. 

Is It Fun?

The design of the Birdie golf ball is supposed to prevent the ball from rolling away, but it also kind of makes it hard to send the Birdie flying. The package shows the Birdies flying up in the air, but we never experienced that in all the times we played the game. There's definitely a learning curve to hitting the Birdie golf balls, both for younger and older players. The younger players seemed to like the game more, while the adults found it a little frustrating. It also helps if you have a big backyard that's relatively flat so there's more space to move around.

Who It’s For

Birdie Golf is for ages 4 and up, but there is a learning curve for the younger players.

What To Be Aware Of

The game includes two clubs, a flag, four Birdies, and one caddy pack, which is essentially a fanny pack.
