1. Each player will furnish his own equipment for play. Normally
one club and two balls, and upon request of course owner, one club

2. The course to be played must be approved by the owner of the

3. Unlike outdoor golf, the object of the game is to get the club
in the hole and to keep the balls out.

4. For the most effective play, the club should have a firm
shaft. Course owners are permitted to check the stiffness of the
shaft before the play begins. Owners may choose to wash the balls
before play begins. This also helps stiffen the shaft.

5. Course owners reserve the right to restrict the length
of the club to avoid damage to the hole.

6. The object of the game is to take as many strokes as necessary
until course owners are satisfied. Failure to do so may result in
being denied permission to play the course again. A hole in ione
stroke results in premature ejection from the course.

7. It is usually considered bad form to begin playing the hole
immediately upon arriving at the course. The experienced golfer
will admire the entire course paying particular attention to well
formed bunkers, maniculed bushes, and conveniently located in rest

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

9. A player should assume himself that his match has been
properly scheduled especially on a course being played for the
first time. Previous players have been known to get irate if they
find someone else playing what they consider to be their own
private couse.

10. A player should not assume a course is in shape for play at
all times. Some owners may be embarrased if their course is
temporarily under repair and the player is advised to use tact in
this determination. More advanced players will find that other
holes on the same course may be open for play on a temporary basis
while the main hole is closed.

11. It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to
play the same hole several times in one mach. Extra points may be
awarded for playing the primary hoel and any of the secondary holes
at the same time.

12. Course owners will be the sole judge of who is the best player.

13. It is considered bad form for a player to reveal his score to
other players or that he has even played the course. Doing this may
result in the contract being cancelled and a suit for damages

14. Players are advised that over many years of play, a course may
change in appearance, but the hole remains the same. Therefore, a
player must seek to find new and interesting approaches to the hole
and unique methods of playing the hole to keep the course excited
and challenging in the years to come.
