*Park golf is a form of golf played in a park. It's somewhere between golf and croquet. The competitive object of the game is to hit the ball into a hole with a club in the fewest number of strokes. At the same time, there is also a strong emphasis on harmony with other players (players of park golf are referred to as parkers) and the natural setting of the course. (More details on Wikipedia)
