Indoor golf

The weather probably has many of you anticipating going to the golf course when warm weather returns. Until those happy days arrive, here's an alternative.

The 14 Rules of Indoor Golf

1 Each player will furnish his own equipment for play, normally one club and two balls.

2. Course to be played must be approved by the owner of the hole.

3. Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get the club in the hole and keep the balls out of the hole.

4. There is no standard hole size. Unlike outdoor golf, most players enjoy the challenge of the smallest possible hole for the tightest shot.

5. For the most effective play, the club should have a stiff shaft. Course owners are permitted to check the stiffness of the shaft before play begins.

6. Course owner has the right to restrict the length of the club to avoid damage to the hole.

7. It will be necessary to take as many strokes as are needed to satisfy the course owner. Failure to do so may cause player to be barred from the course.

8. It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately upon arriving at the course. It is customary to admire the entire course, paying close attention to the well-formed bunkers and carefully trimmed bushes.

9. Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have played to the course owner. Course owners have been known to damage a player's equipment for this reason.

10. Special permission may be required in order to play more than one hole on the same course.

11. Players should be sure the match is properly scheduled, especially when playing a new course for the first time. Previous players may take exception to someone else playing what they think is their private course.

12. Some course owners may put a hole out of bounds on certain days of the month. Advanced players may attempt alternate holes during that period.

13. It is considered outstanding performance to play the same hole several times in one match.

14. Course owners shall be the judge as to who is the best player. It is considered bad form for a player to reveal his score to other players. Players who have contracted for exclusive rights to play a private course are advised against informing the course owner of play on other courses. Such revelations may result in cancelled contract and suit for damages.
