Golf with a bowler or pitcher

Like Cricket, but more interesting. A bowler or American-style pitcher delivers the ball to your would-be golfer, waiting with his club, wherein the golfer aims his return at an appropriate hole.

The speed of the bowler/pitcher's delivery should theoretically increase the speed and distance of the returned ball, for reaching far holes on large golf courses.

Full disclosure: the ancient Celts were said to have a golf-like game in which a goalie guarded a hole and took his own shots after attempting to block a deluge.

       It seems to me that the person rolling the ball would be at serious risk of getting struck by that ball, after the golfer hits it.

       The Celts faced the deluge, stronger than Noah. Softer balls for a softer age?
