What is Pitch and Putt?

Pitch and Putt is a simple and smaller version of Golf. The competitive sport of Pitch & Putt is fast, cheap and easier for beginners. The only differences with Golf lie in the distances, (no hole longer than 90 metres, an 18-hole course no longer than 1 200 metres), and the number of clubs a player may use (any two clubs + a putter). The rest is golf, played under R&A or USGA rules.
