Mini golf consists of playing a ball from the tee into the hole by a stroke. Players start on the first hole and progress in order.
The winner is the player with the lowest aggregate stroke play total.
Each stroke counts as a point. If the ball has not been holed after six strokes, another point is added. The highest possible score at any hole is 7.
If the ball doesn´t go across the red line, then the player must play from the tee again.
If the ball goes across the red line, then the player plays from the point which the ball stopped.
The playing areas, which are without the red line, the player must always start to play from the tee in every stroke.
If a ball comes to rest outside the playing area (out of bounds) before the red line, then the player should retake their shot. No additional penalty is incurred.
If a ball comes to rest outside the playing area (out of bounds) after the red line, then the player keeps on playing from the nearest black line at 90 degrees which the ball left the playing area.
If a ball comes to rest alongside or near to the perimeter boundary of a run, or to an obstacle, it can be repositioned (only by hand) up to the nearest black line at 90 degrees.
A ball is deemed to have been holed when it comes to rest in the cup. If a ball enters the cup and then rebounds out again, it is deemed not to have been successfully holed.
