Golf Croquet

Golf croquet

Golf Croquet is a much simpler and quicker version of the game, but can be just as exciting. it has a completely different set of rules and tactics.

The object is to score hoops in the same order as in Association Croquet. There are no extra turns for going through hoops or hitting other balls although opposing balls can be knocked out of the way. When a player scores a hoop, all play is then to the next hoop.

The first player to score seven hoops wins the game, which usually takes 45-60 minutes.
