Now I had all the parts how was I going to incorporate them on a real dartboard? First I started with the fact that most golf courses are a par 72. So that was my par for 18 holes. All you had to do was shoot 18 holes and then subtract or add your pars, bogies, birdies and eagles to 72. That gave you your score for shooting 18 holes.
Now you have the story and the rules to begin shooting DARTGOLF. This is just the amateur level. We will get to the semi-pro and pro levels in the next chapters to come.
By now you may have noticed that during all this time I had not incorporated the Bull's-eye. Partly because I wasn’t that good at throwing (and hitting) the Bull's-eye. Also I could just use my scoring system and get a hole in one on par threes by hitting a double on whatever number was a par three. There fore counting as an eagle (which is -2) or in other words a hole in one (2 from 3 = 1) but again that's when I noticed that if the par threes were particular numbers like 5, 10, 16, and 18 then those were easier for me because I've always been better with those numbers to get in on my 01 games. That's when I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate the Bull's-eyes for par threes. Thus changing the par three holes continually, by changing the golf course that we played. Now instead of shooting at the wedge for a particular par three hole we had to shoot at the Bull's-eye.
This created another problem which was how do we score the hits? This is what I came up with. If you hit the double bull that is a hole in one. Hit a single bull that became a birdie. Outside the bull but inside the triple ring that is par. Outside the triple ring and inside the double ring is a bogie. Outside the double ring was a double bogie (just like the same rules as the rest of the game) and if you hit a wire and the dart hits the ground that was a triple bogie, (like oops I topped the ball, or landing in the lake).
