Golf Croquet rules updated

Version 5 of the WCF rules for Golf Croquet came into effect in England and Wales on 1st March.

The CA has produced an update of their rules booklet (was a green colour and is now blue) and this can now be ordered from the CA at a cost of £5.

The main changes are:
– the wrong ball rule now doesn’t penalise players for getting it wrong
– after a hoop is scored playing an onside ball if you have offside one cannot be recalled
– a ball goes out of play if it touches the boundary
– scoring clips falling off no longer prevent a jump shot from scoring a hoop
– you may deem a shot played without actually touching the ball
– the penalty point now becomes a one yard semi-circle
