What is Urban Golf?
Urban golf is like regular golf but with some fun twists:
1. The course is a city environment instead of a grass field.
2. Traditional golf balls are substituted with tennis balls (or “urban golf balls”) which, in theory, shouldn’t damage property or hurt anyone.
3. The hole is substituted with a target so if you hit it, you’ve “holed” the ball.
1. golf club(s) (whatever you can find in a pawn shop)
2. tennis ball(s) (assume you'll lose a few)
3. marker (for distinguishing each player's ball)
4. duck tape or masking tape (for marking “holes”)
5. paper or smart phone (for keeping score)
1. fanny pack (for holding balls, markers, tape, & paper)
2. glove (for better club grip)
The player who completes the “hole” with the fewest amount of shots wins.
Ace—hole in one
Par—average number of shots a hole should take
Albatross / Double Eagle—3 under Par
Eagle—2 under Par
Birdie—1 under Par
Bogey—1 over Par
Double Bogey—2 over Par
Triple Bogey—3 over Par
1. Ball Unplayable +1 shot to score
• Play previous shot
• pick up and drop ball within two club lengths (sideways, not closer to hole)

2. Where does one play? Where does one mark holes?
