Golf croquet is a popular version of croquet, a sport played on grass in which the objective is to hit plastic or wooden balls through hoops with a mallet. There are only two forms of croquet in which the rules are agreed internationally and are played worldwide: association croquet and golf croquet.
In golf croquet each player takes turns trying to hit a ball through the same hoop, the winner being the player who manages to hit the ball through the most hoops first. There are no extra turns for hitting other balls unlike association croquet.
Golf Croquet has the advantage of being easier to learn and play, and is therefore the fastest-growing version of the game.
