The Rules of Bedroom Golf 1.Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play - normally one club for 2 balls. 2.Play on a course must be approved by the owner of the hole. 3.Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get your club in the hole and keep your balls out of the hole. 4.For the 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 course owner is satisfied that play is complete. Failure to do so may result in denial of permission to play the 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 a players equipment for this reason. 9.Players are encouraged to bring proper raingear for their own protection. 10.Players should assure themselves that their match has been properly scheduled, particularly when a 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 consider their 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. More advanced players will find alternative means of play when this is the case. 12.Slow play is encouraged. However, players should be prepared to proceed at a quicker pace, at least temporarily, at the course's request. 13.It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the same hole several times in one match. 14.Players are advised to obtain the course owners permission before playing the back nine. 15.The course owners will be the sole judge of who is the best player. 16.Balls must be washed and dried before starting play. 17.Divots must be replaced. 18.Reaching into the hole to retrieve balls is not permitted 19.You are only allowed to move your balls if this course is in bad condition. 20.Don't let your balls bounce around in the cart.

This can be an unfair advantage in the course of normal play. 23.Keep your hat on. The sun on the course can beat down hard. 24.Don't forget to wear your glove.
