Footnotes

  • An outdoor game for two or more players...with elements of croquet and billiards Gofky is played by putting a golf ball from a tee at one side of the lawn around the 5 wooden jacks in a different order for each hole prior to holing out in a cast iron hole on the other side of the lawn.
    Harry Vardon extols the virtues of Gofky in the advertising leaflet, 'a 9 hole round of Gofky lasts a good two hours and is played on a 40 foot square lawn'.
