The Rules of Bedroom Golf

1. Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play.

2. Play on a course 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

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

5. Course owners reserve the right to restrict club length 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 that play is completed. Failure
To do so may result in being denied permission to play course again

7. It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately
upon arrival at the course. The experienced player will normally
take time to admire the entire course with special attention to well
formed bunkers

8. Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have played,
or are currently playing, to the owner of the course being played.
Upset course owners have been known to damage players equipment for
this reason.

9. Players are encouraged to bring proper rain gear for their own

10. Players should ensure themselves that their match has been
properly scheduled, particularly when a new course is being played
for the first time. Previous players have been known to become irate
if they discover someone else playing on what they considered to be
a private course.

11. Players should not assume a course is in shape for play at all
Some players may be embarrassed if they find the course to be
temporarily under repair.
Players are advised to be extremely tactful in this
situation. More advanced players will find alternative means of
play when this is the case.

12. The course owners is responsible for manicuring and pruning any bush
around the hole to allow for improved viewing of alignment with, and
approach to the hole.

13. Players are advised to obtain the course owners permission before
attempting to play the back nine.

14. Slow play is encouraged. However, players should be prepared to proceed
at a quicker pace, at least temporarily, at the course owners request

15. It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the same hole several times in one match
