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.
