Rules for Bedroom Golf
1. Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play. Normally one club
and two (2) balls.
2. Play on a course must be approved by the owner of the holes.
3. Owner of the course must approve the equipment before play may begin.
4. For most effective play, the club must have a firm shaft. Course owners
are permitted to check the shaft stiffness before play begins.
5. Course owners reserve the right to restrict the shaft length to avoid
any damage to the course.
6. Unlike outdoor golf, the goal is to get the club into the hole, while
keeping the balls out.
7. The object of the game is to take as many strokes as deemed necessary
until the course owner is satisfied that play is complete. Failure to do so
may result in being denied permission to play the course in the future.
8. 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 being given to the
9. Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they may have played
or are currently playing to the owner of the course being played. Upset
course owners have been known to damage a players equipment for this
10. Players should assure 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 what they consider to be a private course.
11. Players should not assume a course is in shape for play at all times.
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 alternate means of play when
this is the case. Players are encouraged to have proper rain gear along,
just in case.
12. Players are advised to obtain the course owners permission before
attempting to play the back nine.
13. Slow play is encouraged, however, players should be prepared to proceed
at a quicker pace, at least temporarily, at the request of the course
14. It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the
same hole several times in one match.
15. The course owner will be the sole judge as to who is the best player.
16. Players are advised to think twice before considering membership at a
given course. Additional assessments 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.
