The request for this word was: "golf: competitive game whose players propel an object into each of a series of goal-zones in the minimum number of strokes"  [note]

More Information

There is also a somewhat similar Klingon game called cha'DaSvI'. Maltz wasn't clear on the rules, though he said that, like golf, it involves precisely aiming a projectile. For the Terran game, the loanword gho'lIv is most common. Maltz thought Terran golf was far too tame to be referred to as tera' cha'DaSvI'. (qep'a' 2022)
