Extreme Golf has become a pop culture phenomenon, and this is the first how-to guide that explains the rules, strategies, challenges, and rewards.

It has been called golf with attitude! And it has captured the imagination of Generations X, Y, and Z.

Forget the well-manicured fairways, rigid dress codes, and costly greens fees of the country club. Guerrilla golf is taking the game in a dramatic new direction--to the streets, parks, pastures, and ski slopes, locations that offer true golfing challenges. In this book, players will find everything they need to navigate the wild and rough terrain and conditions of this extreme form of the sport.

This handy, visually original manual establishes for the first time the history and parameters of the game and its variations. It shows players how to set up their own course, how to organize play, how to score, what equipment to use, and important safety precautions to take. It also directs them to established guerilla courses and tournaments around the world.

Written in the gonzo spirit of the game itself, Guerrilla Golf takes the guesswork out of a rapidly growing pastime, whose popularity has already drawn attention in such media outlets as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Golf Digest, Esquire, Newsweek, Time, and USA Today.
