The game can be played on any turfed area such as public parks,
gardens etc. for recreational purpose. All that needs to be done is to mark boundaries
for the playing area described as ‘Gates’, ‘Tee Box’, ‘Fairway’ and ‘Green’.
Each Gate shall consists of a ‘Tee-off’ area, ‘Fairway’ and end at a ‘Green’ where
the gate is located. Generally fairway distances are between 40 metres to 130
metres depending on the par rating of the Gate. Width of fairways must be a minimum
of 3 metres and no more than 10 meter where the fairway turns at a ‘dog-leg’ the
landing zone should be wider (10 metres).
The par rating of each Gate is calculated from the amount of strokes it requires
for a ‘professional level’ player to complete the Gate by tee-ing off, playing
through the fairway and finishing at the green. A Woodball Course is made up of
12 Gates. International Championship Competition standard requires playing over
two (2) numbers of 12 Gate Courses, i.e. 24 Gates. Generally each course covers
a total distance between 700 metres to 900 metres depending on design. It consists
of 4 no.s Par 3’s, 4 no.s Par 4’s and 4 no.s Par 5’s making a 48 Par Stroke 12
