Item/Description: Extremely RARE “Country Club Golf” board game in COMPLETE & NEAR MINT condition!!!
“A most realistic game for beginners and all golf enthusiasts!” Country Club Golf is a simulation of an actual 18-hole golf game.
This particular game is very rare (we’ve never come across another identical to it). Though there are other games out there that are similarly &/or even identically NAMED, none of them are identical to THIS one! Based upon the paper insert inside the game box which reads ”This Unit was Assembled by the Employees of SHORE CENTER SHELTERED WORKSHOP”(which is a “disability related center based employment” program), it’s possible that this game was a fundraiser project created only for a special event &/or limited period of time.

***Features of Game:
*Up to eight (8) players (two golf foursomes) can play at one time
*Two (2)-sided game boards enable eight (8) players (two foursomes) to play the game at one time by rotating/exchanging the boards with each other for the “front nine” and the “back nine” (as such, the only two “holes” boards that are one-sided are the 9th and 18th holes)
***Contents of Game:
*Ten (10) colorful “Hole Layout Boards” (these game boards are very large, heavy and sturdy, with each individual board weighing 9 oz and measuring 18"L x 11 ½”W)

*Eight (8) “Ball Markers” (dice)
*Two (2) pads of “Score Cards”
Box information & instructions read: “A most realistic game for beginners and all golf enthusiasts. The rules of play are self-explanatory and easy to follow. The Course is laid out to compliment your own imagination of your favorite Golf Course, or any other equally as good. Par for the course is 72 for 18 holes. Par 36 for the first nine holes (Holes 1 thru 9) usually is referred to as the ‘Front Nine’ and par 36 for the last nine (Holes 10 thru 18) usually referred to as the ‘Back Nine.’
The game is designed to cover all the points of physical action at which time, in actual outdoor play, a particular club would be used. In this game we substitute the ‘Action Board Spinners’ for the golf clubs.
The action points are as follows:
1) Tee Off
2) Off Fairway
3) Approach Shots
4) Chip Shots
Age/Period: Vintage - ca 1960s-1990s

Condition Summary: Game is complete and near mint and comes in its original box! Not only are all playing pieces/game components still present, but the game appears to have never been played with at all &/or only very gently so. Though “Score Pads” do appear to be “full” and unused, the cardboard backing to one of them has become separated! One of the game cards (Hole #7) along the edge of the upper lefthand side has a couple of teeny paper dings/ruboffs.
Box is also in excellent, completely intact condition.
