This is the game most people in Australia begin playing. Golf croquet is easier to learn and play than Association but it does require strategic skills and accurate play. A hoop is won by the first ball to go through the hoop and, unlike Association Croquet, there are no additional turns for hitting other balls.
Each player takes a stroke in turn, each trying to hit a ball through the same hoop. The sequence of play is blue, red, black, yellow.
Blue and black balls play against red and yellow. When a hoop is won, the sequence of play continues as before. The winner of the game is the first player/team to win 7 hoops or the most hoops in the time frame.
Golf croquet is the fastest-growing version of the game, owing largely to its simplicity and competitiveness, association croquet being more like snooker on grass.
Golf Croquet at the highest level.
