Perl Golf League

With the recent outbreak in Perl Golf play I thought it might be cool if there was an organized "Perl Golf League" on PerlMonks. There could be official "courses" with 9 or 18 holes each that have a set par (how many characters you should be able to get it in). Once there were courses you could either play individually or there could be tournaments. There could be a leader board of all the best (lowest) scoring scripts determined by how much below par they were.

Since this might not fit into the Monastery theme (It would look a little odd to have "Craft | Golf | Meditations") there could just be a "Perl Games" section, although I don't know what else you'd put in it ("Perl Basketball"? You try to get the highest number of characters for the least amount of actual code).

Anyway, I thought it was a kind of cool idea so I though I'd post it and let it get smacked around by the other monks.

    I like the idea, but it does not seem to have insired the majority :-(

    Perhaps you could pose some problems and post it?
