A game played with a small ball and a bat or club crooked at the lower end. He who drives the ball into each of a series of small holes in the ground and brings it into the last hole with the fewest strokes is the winner.
The Game. Played by playing a ball from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules of Golf. Source of Inspiration to some, and Absolute Frustration to most.
1. A form of recreational gamesmanship involving a set of sticks used to hit a small ball around with the goal of putting it into a little hole, usually, some distance off, with as few strokes of the sticks as possible. 2. A game played outdoors by men who are dressed in bizarre attire. 3. A frustrating game in which one can improve only with repeated practice. 4. Many of us join together in outside, even outdoors, fellowship, including golf. 5. A game that has nothing to do with Recovery, and everything to do with skill, practice, lessons, fellowship, luck, example and patience. Something that is more fun when done with others, and when done well can help make you feel better. Come to think of it, it's just like Recovery
The object is to pot a ball in each pocket within the allotted number of shots (par). The balls are racked in a diamond as for 9 ball but in any order of positioning. Each pocket (hole) has a number of shots allowed (par). Balls can be potted in any order, but a pocket must be nominated before the shot is taken, and the ball must go in that pocket. Two pockets will be par 1, two will be par 2, and the middle two will be par 3. When six balls have been potted, the last three must be potted, each in a different par pocket. If the white is potted, a stroke is added to that players score. If a ball is 'putted' into the wrong hole, the par for that hole is added to the score. If, due to fouls, there are not enough balls left on the table to make the six balls, the hole par value becomes the score, with an additional three points per ball. After the first player (golfer) has potted nine balls, the next player starts their nine balls. The total strokes begins from the break until the last ball is potted. If a player does not pot a ball with a par score, the additional strokes taken are added to their total score.
