- Ferrets is a side bet game in which a “ferret” is awarded to any player who holes out from off the green for a par or better. In some versions, the ferret is awarded to a player who holes out from off the green without using a putter.
- A golden ferret is awarded to the player who holes out from a bunker.
- The bet amount is decided by the group of players. Players might be awarded the bet amount for every time they get a ferret, or all players might contribute to the pot, which goes to the player with the most ferrets at the end of the game.
- The golden ferret bet amount might be double the ferret bet or something else, as decided by the players prior to the match.
