How to use Golf Bucks

Once you’ve earned Golf Bucks, simply use them to buy scratchcards - right on your phone. Each scratch card has the opportunity to win instant prizes like clubs, balls, and gift cards. But it gets better. Way better.

Each scratchcard automatically enters you into a drawing for dream golf experiences. Imagine playing a round with PGA Pro legends, winning a dream golf trip for you and your closest friends, or how about a spot in a PGA Tour Pro-Am?

  1. Open the app and tap Marketplace on the bottom menu bar.
  2. Tap the DreamGames banner at the top.
  3. Tap Scratch to win.
  4. Tap Scratch now.

5 Golf Bucks will automatically be deducted from your account for each scratchcard played.
Limited to a maximum of 10 scratchcards per 24 hours.

I played 16 holes before it got dark so I did not finish my round, will I still earn Golf Bucks?

At this time, you must enter a score for all holes in order for your round to be counted as “qualified” and earn Golf Bucks. If you start a 9-hole round, you need to complete all 9 holes to earn Golf Bucks. All 18 holes must be completed for your 18-hole round to earn Golf Bucks.

If I play with a friend who scores my round for me on his app, will I still earn Golf Bucks?

Yes, you can, but you will need to do a few things to ensure you earn them:

  1. Accept your friend’s 18Birdies Round Invitation at the start of the round.
  2. Continue using your 18Birdies while you’re on the course.
  3. Confirm the completed scorecard at the end of the round.

If you do not open up your 18Birdies app until the end of the round, you will not earn Golf Bucks. As an individual player of DreamGames, you must fulfill the requirements of a qualified round with an app which you are logged into.
