Crazy Golfing is a popular ball game played by middle aged men in the Centauri Princess.

The game is played in a similar style, and with similar rules, as present day golf here on earth, except that the golf ball experiences no gravitational pull for it to descend back down to the ground once it has been hit with the club.

This creates a huge amount of challenge and uncertainty for the competing players, making scoring a 'hole in one' a virtual impossibility. In addition to this, the trajectory and random behaviour of the ball after it becomes airborne, have served to give the name of the game its "crazy" prefix.

A session of crazy golfing in the Ark's Sports & Leisure Complex between Frederick Chang and Gordon Crista is visualised in First Ark to Alpha Centauri, pages 153 to 157.
