My sport is called basketgolf. It is a mix of Basketball and Golf, so I called it Baskegolf. This game would be fun for people ages 6-40, or just for people who can get the basketball to the basket. It would be best for these ages because kids might not be strong enough to play basketball normal until about 6.
You play the game by playing regular golf on a normal course just like golf. But the holes are the size of a basketball goal and are in the ground. You shoot from wherever you are on the green into the basket. Wherever the ball lands when you miss is where you shoot your next shot from. You don't shoot it from where it rolls to you shoot it from where it lands. The equipment you will need is golf clubs like if you're playing golf and a basketball. You can have up to 5 people playing together at once. The rules are the same thing as golf all the way up until you're on the green. There will be par 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s.
BasketGolf is a really fun sport that I came up with today. As one can see, there are a lot of rules and skills needed for this sport to be good at it and it would take a lot of work, like any other sport, to be really good. There are lots of components required for this sport, but overall I think it would be really fun.
