Owner of the course must approve equipment before play may begin.
Unlike regular golf, the object of the game is to get the club into the hole, while keeping the balls out.
For most effective play, the club should have a firm shaft. The course owner may check the stiffness of the shaft before allowing play to commence.
Course owner reserves the right to restrict the shaft length, so as to avoid damage to the course.
The object of the game is to take as many strokes as possible, until the course owner is satisfied. Failure to do so may result in being denied permission to play the course again.
Players are cautioned to play the correct hole, as indicated by the course owner.
It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately upon arrival at the course. Experienced players will admire the course, paying special attention to the well formed bunkers.
Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have played recently to the owner of the course presently being played.
If the course to be played is temporarily under repair, player is advised to find alternate means of play.
It is considered outstanding form to play the hole several times in one match.
Course owners shall be the judge of who is the best player.
It is considered bad form to reveal your score to other players, or even that you have played the course.
Players are encouraged to have the proper rain gear along, just in case.
Slow play is encouraged. However, players should be prepared to play at a quicker pace, at least temporarily, at the course owner’s request.
Players are advised to think twice before considering membership at a given course. Additional assesments may be levied by the course owner, and the rules are subject to change. For this reason, many players prefer to continue to play several different courses.
