DAI - Dansk Arbejder Idræt - An organization with several non-elite sports. Krolf is one of their most succesfull activities. They have been playing organized krolf since 2008-2010. They have made their own version of DKU's original krolf rules - they are very similar to the International Rules.

1. Deutscher Krolf Verein e.V. - The first krolf club in Germany. Albert and Armin Gross from Bad Hindelang in the German Alps invented a game that was ½ croquet and ½ golf and would call it krolf, but found out that it already existed in Denmark. They adapted the Danish rules and added some mountain-krolf rules.
Every year there are Danish players in Germany at the German Open and likewise Germans paticipating in the World Championships in Denmark.
