About

               SHOOTING a Pen/Pencil on a paper course is awesome!!

      SCRATCH GOLF is done!  Well..Almost!!

"As zany as it looks, this novelty game is a wonderful distraction from the mundane...                        ...and a whole lot of fun to play!!"

Painstakingly designed with beautiful graphics, this truly 'one-of-a kind' game is virtually done... Our next step is to do a large professionally print run on quality recycled paper to complete it and bring it to you... 

            "A game like this has never been created before...try it!!"

Scratch Golf is a unique gaming experience. Part Elegant 'ART-DECO COFFEE TABLE BOOK' & part 'RETRO COMIC BOOK'  it appeals to a wide range of ages and players.  

Everyone loves playing the game...."Boy, girl, young, old, novice or pro everyone will enjoy shooting pens playing  this fantastic game!"    -The Ritter family

THE HISTORY:

"Back in school we would shoot our pencils (making scratch marks) for fun at tanks or spaceships drawn on notebook paper using a 'karate chop' method."  

A few of us liked playing a more 'refined' way by shooting the pencil using our finger on the eraser end and pushing forward to make a scratch mark on the paper.   

Fast forward to today where we have a created a prototype game that utilizes this method of shooting a pen or pencil playing on a paper golf course taking shots from tee box to hole (just like real golf).

The best part of Scratch Golf is that you can play it...in a car, or at the bar, with your friend, whose on the mend or even in a house with your spouse...play it here, there or anywhere...you get the idea....

*Important Note:  We are pleased to offer the ability for people to electronically 'print and play the game' so that anybody, anywhere in the world will be able to play and enjoy the game!!  Great for the International fan!   No need for shipping and get the game right away!!. 

                     Thank you in advance, and lets make this happen!!

The feedback on the prototype game books has been great.  Many people have commented on how its nostalgic like a puzzle book or Mad Libs, but the difference is that you are interacting directly with the game by doing a physical action...shooting!!  

Whether playing seriously on a competitive level or playing just for kicks and fun - betting on who can make that shot over the water hazard onto the green for par in exciting... 

But don't be fooled, Scratch Golf can be a hardcore game of... 

              ...Skill, Technique & Strategy!

HOW TO SHOOT & KEY/RULES:

SHOOTING & COURSE KEY
SHOOTING & COURSE KEY

SCRATCH GOLF is an entire golfing experience and includes:

  • '18' different miniature holes consisting of par 3, 4 and 5's 
  • Course Par is 72 with total distance of 8,282 (yards) 
  • BONUS 19th hole 
  • Driving Range 
  • Putting Green 
  • Practice swing area 
  • Unique 'Fold Down' score card and 'Hole Backer'
BEAUTIFUL HOLE #5 'DOG LEG' LEFT PAR 4
BEAUTIFUL HOLE #5 'DOG LEG' LEFT PAR 4

Each hole has a:

  • "Clever Name" and a Number 
  • Distance from tee to hole 
  • Par (number of shots) 
  • Hole commentary
  • Fun hidden animals or objects 
  • Fantastic 3-D color graphics                                                       

Each one inch (1") on the miniature Scratch Golf paper course is equal to approximately one hundred (100) yards of distance on a real golf course so the Scratch Golf game distance and play is very realistic.

Scratch Golf is fun for all ages and can be played virtually anywhere. It is completely portable and will fit in most portfolios or carry bags (8.5"x11").

The object of the game is to 'shoot' a pen or pencil by placing it's tip end (resting) upon the paper holding it with your index (or any desired) finger by the cap end; then gently pushing the pen/pencil forward...letting it drop to the paper aiming it toward the desired location.

SHOOTING FROM TEE BOX
SHOOTING FROM TEE BOX

The pen/pencil will make a 'scratch' mark which is a 'shot.' Continue shooting from your previous marks' end toward the hole navigating obstacles to hole out!

         FIDGET SPINNERS got nothing on SCRATCH GOLF!!

Most asked questions:

1) "How many rounds of golf can I play on each hole?"

On average four (4) rounds of golf can be played on each hole before it gets too 'scratched up.' This is not a 'one-use' product and can be enjoyed for multiple rounds for hours of game play. We suggest using different color pens to keep track of each player's shot.

                    Play solo, in a pair or up to a foursome!

2) "What kind of pen or pencil works best?"

Part of the fun is finding a pen or pencil that makes that perfect shot (just like finding the right club in real golf). We suggest roller ball or gel type pens, mechanical pencils, thin markers or regular pencils. Not recommended are ball-point pens.

                 Test your pens and pencils out on the driving range!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

With SCRATCH GOLF Kick-starter there is virtually no risk involved. Curtlin Toys and Games has successfully published several products since its inception in 2009 including the award winning KATATU game which has been sold internationally.

SCRATCH GOLF is our newest creation that has been painstakingly designed and is close to being ready to go. All that is left is the final printing before we can send the first generation game to you starting sometime in December.

We see SCRATCH GOLF being the first of many 'scratch' games which will, in the future, include Scratch Golf of famous courses, 'Scratch Baseball,' 'Alien Asteroids' and 'Scratch Activity' books for children.
