If you have ever played the game of horseshoes, then you have the basics of how to play cornhole. For those of you who have never played either of these enjoyable games, the concept is simple to learn. Two boards will be set up on opposite sides of a playing field. You do not need to search for a court when playing cornhole, any open yard or area will do just fine! Each board has a little hole in the center, this serves as a scoring area. Each opposing team will usually have two people playing on each side of the field and receive bean bags to play with. The goal is to get your bean bags into the scoring hole, or on the board. Brunswick Forest has plenty of wide-open spaces that you can play corn hole at, such as Annsdale Park and Meadow Park. Hugh MacRae Park, Carolina Beach State Park, Founders Park and Westgate Nature Park are just some of the surrounding locations that are perfect for cornhole.
