Perl Golf is a sport, often played on comp.lang.perl.misc, in which players attempt to solve a given problem using the smallest amount of Perl code. It is called "golf" because the players attempt to shave "strokes" (characters) off their programs in order to win.

Tournaments have been organized for Perl Golf. See The opposite of Perl Golf is Perl Bowling.
