THE RULES OF BEDROOM GOLF

 1. Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play -
    normally one club and two balls.

 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 of the hole.

 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 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 the course owner is satisfied that the play is
    complete.
    Failure to do so may result in being denied 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 player's equipment for this reason.

 9. Players are encouraged to have proper raingear along just in
    case.

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 alternative means of play when this is the
    case.

12. Players are advised to obtain the course owner's 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 course owner's request.

14. It is considered outstanding performance to play the same
    hole several times in one match.
