"Archery Golf" is a fun twist to the standard game of golf, it is played to the same rules as standard golf, but uses bows and arrows instead of clubs and balls, and the hole is replaced by a tennis ball on top of a drinks can (or similar set-up).
Archery Golf is ideally played on a standard golf course, however most golf courses will not allow archery Golf. You will probably have to make up your own course in a park or field with a lot of space.
Holes range in distance from 100 to 500 yards
Archery Golf is played by between one to four people. Each person should have his or her own equipment, consisting of a bow and three arrows (a long flight arrow, a medium approach arrow, and a short flu-flu for "putting.")
Choose a tee-off spot from which everyone will take his or her shot. Shoot your first shot from the tee-off spot; shoot each subsequent shot from wherever your arrow lands.Trying to knock the ball off the can in as few shots as possible. The lowest overall score wins.
