In brief: Yes

You will want to pace yourself and be aware of your body's sensations.
Any discomfort, pulling, or tugging in your groin is a sign that you're not ready for that much activity. You may be better off chipping and putting practice than driving practive or a full game. Remember, that mesh your doctor placed needs to seal in place -- if it moves, it can cause a recurrence of your hernia.

Generally yes.
Recovery from any type of laparoscopic surgery is usually anywhere between 3-14 days. Most of my patients return to full activites within 2 weeks after surgery.
