The Next Olympic sport?
The Next Olympic sport?
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 course before play can begin.
3. Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get the club in the hole and keep the balls out of the hole
4. For most effective play, the club should have a firm shaft. Course owners are permitted to check the stiffness of the shaft before play begins.
5. Course owners reserve the right to restrict the length of the club to avoid damage to the hole.
6. The object of the game is to take as many strokes as necessary until the course owner is satisfied. Failure to do so may result in being denied permission to play the course again.
7. Players are cautioned to select the proper hole for play
8. It is normally considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately upon arriving at the course. The experienced player will usually admire the entire course, with special attention to well formed bunkers. He should also assure himself that the hole is properly lubricated to aid in stroking. Additional lubricant may be added to the club if necessary; preferably by the course owner.
9. Players are cautioned not to mention any other courses that have been played recently, or concurrently to the owner of the course being played. Upset owners have been known to damage a player's equipment for this reason.
10. Players should assure themselves that their match has been properly scheduled, especially on a different course being played for the first time. Previous players have been known to get irate if they find that someone else has been playing what they consider their own "private course."
11. Players should not assume the course is in shape for play at all times. Some owners may be embarrassed to admit that the course is temporarily under repair, and the player is advised to use tact in this determination. More advanced players will find alternate means of play when this is the case.
12. It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to
play the same hole several times in one match.
13. Course owners shall be the judge of who is the best player. It is considered bad form for a player to reveal his score to other players, or that he even played the course.
14. Players who have contracted for exclusive rights to play a private course are cautioned that information reaching the owner that he has played some other course may result in the contract being canceled and a suit for damages instituted.
