Golf Croquet

Golf Croquet is the fastest growing version of the sport of Croquet. This is due mainly to its simplicity to learn and play, however there is a certain amount of strategic skill required to be successful. Golf Croquet is won by a player hitting their ball through each hoop. Each player takes a turn at hitting a ball through the same hoop in the sequence of blue, red, black, yellow. Blue and black balls play against red and yellow. The player or team that wins the most hoops is declared the winner.

To qualify as an ACA accredited Golf Croquet Referee candidates are required to complete an Assessment consisting of

  • Completion of the ASC Introductory Level Officiating General Principles Course
  • Completion of Steps 2, 3 and 4 of the ACA GCR Accreditation.

A National Golf Croquet Referee Training Program is being developed by the Golf Croquet Technical Panel but in the interim each State has its own training programs and courses and information can be obtained from your State Director of Refereeing.

The Golf Croquet Refereeing Manual – June 2020

 is a good source of information for Golf Croquet Referees, Golf Croquet Trainee Referees (for whom it is prescribed reading) and Golf Croquet players.

Pages of the Manual may be amended periodically as the rules are revised, policies amended and when new technical information becomes available. Updates will be listed on the ACA website.
