In this puzzle, you must draw arrows according to the following rules:

  • Each ball (circle) must be moved to a hole. Each hole can only receive one ball.
  • The ball must move as many cells as its value. The next move must then be one shorter, and so on, until it reaches a hole. The direction may be changed between two moves (90° only). A move is represented by an arrow, starting where the ball is, and at the tip the landing square.
  • The path of each ball must never cross any hole, ball or other path. The path must never cross itself.
  • The paths may never go outside the bounds of the puzzle or on the grey cells (water hazard.)

Here you can find a sample of a Herugolf puzzle, in case I can't explain rules properly.

Interactive version (You can't draw arrows on answer mode as far as i'm aware of, but lines should do the trick).

Lösungscode: The number of different paths encountered on rows 3, 6 and 8, then column 7 and 10 in that order. Take in account the balls and the holes.

I've now spent about twice as long trying to enter my solution code as I have taken to solve the puzzle. I've double- and triple-checked my solution. Can anyone tell me - is there some trick to entering this code? Do I need spaces between the values or something?

- Make a hidden comment with your answer, or maybe an image of your solve. The code is really weird, and may need further explanations.

The puzzle was fun but the way to understand solution code really penible

- Is it possible for two successive 'strokes' having the same direction (go right then right again)?
- Is it possible for 'strokes' to cross grey cells (landing behind them)?

Puzzle was fun. I don't understand solution code at all (number of arrows? number of squares used? number of distinct paths (some paths cross a given row more than once)? I found a whole book of these from Nikoli, it is great to see them here!

-The solution code requires the amount of dintinc paths seen in each designated rows and columns. -Carrick22

I really like this puzzle type, I didn't know it before. Thanks for introducing it here! More would be fine :-) .

The golf ball can only move orthogonally (diagonal lines are prohibited), and if it encounters a lake and cannot move directly to the lake, it must cross the lake. And the numbers gradually decay. For example, the number 6 must be moved linearly by 6 squares (except directly into the hole), and then choose the direction to move 5 squares again ..., 6-5-4-3-2-1 (one shot can be entered each time Hole).

is it possible for the balls to move along the diagonals or not? In the example it does not happen but is this part of the rules?

This site has a large number of online puzzles of the same type: https://puzz.link/db/?type=herugolf&src=twitter

Of course, you can also choose other types of puzzles under "TYPE".

It appears the solution code was wrong. I'm impressed I didn't see that earlier.

Juhu, wenn ich das als langjährige Minigolferin nicht lösen hätte können, wäre ich schwer enttäuscht gewesen. :)

Changed the solution code : both balls and holes are counted.

You should clarify whether you take into account holes when counting paths. (it seems natural to discount them as balls are discounted)

Nice! Another puzzle type that's pretty popular in Japan but I've almost never seen it in the "western" hemisphere. Here is the Nikoli example page:


-When I look for new puzzletypes, I usually browse through uncommon japanese puzzles to the french websites I know. Also, It gave me many ideas for a bigger puzzle project, but i'll keep that to myself for now.
