Turn the quad into a YOLF golf course, develop course hazards by using lawn ornaments, rocks and furniture, shallow planter boxes for sand traps. “Call Your Shot YOLF” can be played in small areas and can be both challenging and fun.
Some elderly individuals retire and begin to lose their physical agility; it can become easy to fall into a state of mental and physical stagnancy. YOLF is both good physical and mental exercise. The ball is 11” in circumference which makes it easy to hit. The club is a mallet style so it is suitable for both right and left handed Yolfers and its flat hitting surface makes it forgiving. The game is played with official golf rules (with some modifications) golf etiquette is maintained.
