Rules of Bedroom Golf
- Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play, normally one club and two balls.
- Play on a course must be approved by the owner of the hole.
- Unlike outdoor golf the object is to put the club into the hole and keep the balls out of the hole.
- For most effective play the club should have a firm shaft. Course owners are permitted to check shaft stiffness before play begins.
- Course owners reserve the right to restrict the length of the club to avoid damage to the hole.
- The object of the game is to take as many strokes necessary until the course owner is satisfied the play is complete. Failure to do so may result in being denied permission to play the course again.
- 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.
- Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have played, or are playing, to the owner of the course currently being played. Upset course owners have been known to damage a player's equipment for this reason.
- Players are encouraged to have proper rain gear along, just in case.
- Players should assure themselves that the 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 considered to be a private course.
- Players should not assume a course is in shape for play at all times. Some players may 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 advised to obtain the course owner's permission before attempting to play the back 9.
- Slow play is encouraged, however, players should be prepared to proceed at a faster pace at the course owner's request.
- It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the same hole several times in the same match.
- The course owner will be the sole judge of who is the best player.
Players are advised to think twice before considering membership at a give course. Additional assessments may be levied by the course owner and the rules are subject to change. For this reason many players prefer to play several different courses.
