Ladder Golf Set

The game is a challenge. Not the build. This simple and fun outdoor game can be built after work or over a couple of weekend hours. Using just a few YellaWood® boards and some PVC pipe, the game takes shape in a few steps.

The set features 2 ladders made of 1x4 stock and PVC pipes for the rungs.

Drilling holes at the ends of the center rung allows for a hitch pin to lock in each side of the rung, and this tightens the entire ladder to become a sturdy frame.

After sanding and sealing the wood of the two ladders, it's just a matter of getting a set of bolas and letting the competition heat up.

Before you get started, please read our info on safety, fasteners and building tips.
