This game may be played either by two or four persons. Wickets are
placed at irregular distances, and the object of the game is to drive
a wooden ball 2-3/4 inches in diameter through these wickets. It may
be played either as "all strokes," in which the total number of
strokes to get through all the wickets is the final score, or as in
golf, "all wickets," in which the score for each wicket is taken
separately, as each hole in golf is played. The mallet used is
somewhat different from a croquet mallet. The handle is longer and a
bevel is made on one end to raise or "loft" the ball as in golf.
The size of a golf-croquet course will depend upon the field
available. A field 200 yards long will make a good six-wicket course.
