Golf Solitaire is typically played with a standard deck of 52 playing cards. The objective is to clear the tableau (the layout of cards) by building a foundation pile in ascending or descending order. Aces are both high and low, meaning you can place a King on an Ace or an Ace on a King.
To set up the game, shuffle the deck and deal seven columns of five cards each, overlapping so that only the top card of each column is visible. The remaining cards form the draw pile.
The game begins with the top card of the draw pile being turned face-up. This card becomes the first card in the foundation pile. Now, you can start playing cards from the tableau onto the foundation, as long as they are one rank higher or lower than the top card in the foundation pile. For example, if the foundation card is a 7, you can play a 6 or an 8 on it.
When you can't make any more moves or choose not to, you draw another card from the draw pile and continue trying to build on the foundation. The game ends when you've either cleared the tableau or run out of moves.
