Abstract

A golf game employing r.f-tag coded golf balls has a playing area (14) with r.f. antennae (20) located underneath to enable the number of strokes taken by a player to be counted. Separate antennae (22 and 26) are provided for the tee area (12) and hole (16), respectively, and the antennae (21) around the hole are smaller to improve resolution. The antennae (20, 21, 22, 26) are connected to a computer (30) which monitors successive moving and stationary phases of a golf ball to count the number of strokes taken by a player.
