BASIC PUTT-PUTT / MINI GOLF RULES

DEFINITION OF A STROKE:

Every time the putter touches the ball, that counts as ONE STROKE. Regardless of whether it barely rolled at all, regardless of whether you meant to do it or not … it still counts as a stroke.
If you swing and MISS entirely, we are NOT counting that as a stroke. To save face, umm … errr … we’ll call that a practice swing. (grin)

We use the HONOR SYSTEM when counting our strokes. It’s all about having fun so please don’t ruin it by cheating. Please keep track of your strokes accurately. One person in your group will be in charge of writing down the scores.

BALLS LEAVING THE PUTTING AREA:

If you hit your ball too hard and it bounces OFF the putting area, you must start again from the tee. The errant shot counts as a stroke. You do NOT receive an additional penalty stroke. Your penalty is having to start from the tee again.

WHO HITS FIRST?

Decide amongst your group the order on the first hole. After that, typically, the person who scored lowest on the previous hole has “Honors” (hits first). If no one scored lower on the previous hole, use the same order you used last.

WHO HITS FIRST AFTER TEEING OFF?

After all have teed off, whoever is FARTHEST from the hole is the first to hit. This continues until the hole is completed.

HITTING YOUR BALL INTO ANOTHER BALL:

Each of you will be issued a penny to be used as a ball marker. If you think your ball might be in the way, mark it. (replace it with the penny in the exact spot you ball sat).
The game of mini golf consists of playing a ball from the tee into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in
accordance with the rules posted at the tournament site. This tournament will be shot gun start if we have enough
foursomes.

A. Rules of Stroke Play

1. The team who plays the 9 holes in the fewest strokes is the winner (all four team members scores will be added
together for each hole).

2. One stroke penalty if: Ball jumps fairway – play next shot from spot where ball jumped fairway. Ball is
snagged in an obstacle – free ball and play from that spot, not nearer the hole.

3. After members of party reach putting green, the one nearest the hole will putt first and continue to putt until
ball is in cup. Do not take turns on the putting greens.

B. Equipment

1. Clubs

2. The Ball

3. All participants must use ball provided.

C. Player's Responsibilities

1. Players should check their score after each hole for accuracy. Scores may not be altered once the scorecard
has been turned in. Turn in one scorecard per group. Score card must be signed by team captain.

2. There will be no handicapping of scores.

3. Players should not unduly delay play.

4. The playing of practice strokes during the play of a hole or between holes is forbidden. A practice
swing is not a stroke unless the ball is hit.
