Full Contact Golf

Introduction: Full Contact Golf

Golf. The sport of kings. Or something like that. This instructable will show you how, with a litlle ingenuity and a lot of insanity, to make this "sport" a lot more fun!

As a disclaimer, I do remember discussing this game with some friends when I was younger. Since large quantities of beer were involved, I do not remember who came up with the original idea.

Step 1: Your Equipment

The equipment needed for Full Contact Golf is really quite simple:

1. A putter for each player
2. One golf ball

Depending on the individual needs of the player (and whether or not you wish to remain friends with the other players when you are done), other equipment may be needed, such as:

1. Helmets
2. Shin and Elbow Pads
3. Jock Straps

You get the idea.

Step 2: The Rules (or Lack Thereof)

The rules for Full Contact Golf are simple. You may say to yourself, "Self, why didn't I think of this?" Simple. You haven't suffered numerous blows to the head as I have.

The game is played like this: Each player is given one putter, but the entire group plays with only one ball. One player is chosen to "drive" the ball towards the hole. Whichever player manages to put the ball into the "hole" wins the round.

Other rules may be applied as needed. The choice is yours.

One final note: Most golf courses frown on Full Contact Golf being played on regular courses, so try to be creative about where you play.

    wow this is realy similar to a game me n my mates thought of a few months ago! ours was more like rugby or american football because instead of going for a hole you had to get the ball past a line on each end of my friend's garden. we also used plastic kiddies putters because they hurt less when you smack eachother with them.

    Sure it's fun, but this is pretty unoriginal. I've played many iterations of "keep away" throughout my life. This is no different. Maybe make it interesting by inventing a slightly more original playing field with obstacles or something? No putting green would let you play this anyway, as you mention.

    you're right, the rules as I have stated them are fairly "unoriginal". But the fun lies in making up new rules as you go along (a la Calvinball). I tried to leave it fairly simple on purpose so people can make up their own variations. But thanks for the feedback.
