What is Wikipedia Golf? It is the game, passed down by nerds from time immemorial (or at least it's old and well-distributed enough that probably no one knows where it originally came from) that inspired this website. One selects one article as the tee and another article as the hole and then completes the course between them clicking as few links as possible. No typing is allowed.
For a formal game, I suggest a time limit of 15 minutes. Players may use any means available to them except the Oracle of Wikipedia, including typing, search engines, etc. to find the shortest path possible from tee to hole. (Note the word is "find", not "make" - editing Wikipedia for game purposes is not allowed.) Each player must type the article names involved in his or her shortest path. When time is up, the shortest paths are compared to each other. One could play an 18-hole course, possibly spread across several days, and use the Oracle of Wikipedia to establish par values.
The Oracle should always display an optimal path, but there are very often going to be other paths just as short as the one the Oracle displays. Can you find them?
The Oracle also allows you to search for the most challenging potential Wikipedia Golf courses. Few article pairs seem to require more than five clicks, and no known courses are longer than twelve clicks. Can you find a longer course and merit a place in the "records" section?
