How to Play Golf is a 1944 Goofy cartoon directed by Jack Kinney.


An analysis of the game of golf, the Goofy way.


A scene where Goofy mimes shooting himself with his finger and somehow ends up actually shooting a bullet out of it is often edited out in TV showings.


  • When this short was released, The Film Daily called it "highly hilarious", and gave the following review:

"This, another of Walt Disney's Technicolor cartoons featuring the Goof, is a howl. While the narrator explains how properly to play golf, the Goof attempts to demonstrate. Naturally he does everything wrong, with superb results from a comedy point of view. The technique and animation are noteworthy indeed. Mark this down as a topflight booking of its kind."
