YOLF RULE 1
Be sure to explain all designated penalty areas before each yee shot on every yole.
Example: on yole #3 before you yee off, you might designate a driveway as a water yazard (hazard) or a neighbors yard as out of bounds. So if your yolf ball touches the driveway, you must add one yoke (stroke) to your score because your yolf shot has landed in “water”.
YOLF RULE 2
After all yolfers have hit their first tee shots or yee shots, the yolfer furthest from the yole always goes first.
The same format continues until all yolfers in the group have hit their yolf ball into the yole. Always remove your yolf ball after it drops into the yole or is declared a yimme (gimme) by the competitor, so it doesn’t interfere with the other yolfers shots.
YOLF RULE 3
You may move your yolf ball up to one yolf Club Head Length sideways or backwards in order to improve your lie.
(Of course it’s hard to improve on the “lies” of most yolfers).
YOLF RULE 4
There are two methods of dealing with penalty areas.
The first is to simply return your yolf ball to the point at which it first crossed into or touched the penalty area. The second method makes the game a bit more challenging because you would have to return your yolf ball all the way back to the original position from where you hit it. In either case, a penalty yoke (stroke) must be added to your score.
YOLF RULE 5
In Tournament Yolf always measure your yolf shots that land outside the fairway with the one yolf Club Length rule.
This simply means that when you hit your yolf ball, it cannot go outside the edge of the fairway by more than the length of one yolf club. If it is outside the fairway by more than one yolf Club Length, then you must take a penalty yoke (stroke) by adding one yoke (stroke) to your score, and you must return your yolf ball to where it first left the fairway.
YOLF RULE 6
Always mark your Yolf ball or move it out of another yolfers way if he or she asks you to do so.
This rule is only enforced on yolf shots and yutts located close to the yole. Then replace your yolf ball in it’s original spot before you hit your next yolf shot.
YOLF RULE 7
Tournament Yolf provides for one of the most challenging shots in YOLF®.
This is when a yolfer attempts to reach the yole in one shot. This is an extremely risky approach, because your yolf ball must travel through the rough (taller grass), go around obstacles or pass through other fairways in order to land near the yole. If your yee shot does not land in the fairway of the yole you are playing, you must take a penalty yoke (stroke) and return all the way back to the yee area to hit your third shot.
YOLF RULE 8
Take turns going first, replace all yivots (divots) and only one yulligan (mulligan) is allowed per yolfer per round.
YOLF RULE 9
The host yolfer always has the right to make up his or her own rules.
House rules would then apply.
