This is quite a new game, a variation on the original golf game.
Preferably you trudge the Dutch grasslands on wooden shoes (but Wellies are allowed) and you hit an oversized tennisball with the club which consists of a stick with a small wooden shoe at the end of it.
Farmers Golf was developed by farmers in the north of the country. They never have time to play golf, found it too upmarket anyway, and they own the necessary land. So there you go, try it! At the link below you'll find several locations where you can play boerengolf.
