Golf is a sport everyone should play. Contrary to what a lot of you may think its a fun game. I remember following my dad round the golf course when I was younger. I didn’t really understand the game at that time but as I grew older I figured it out.
So what is golf?
A club and ball sport which players use various clubs to hit balls into series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.
Unlike most ball games, cannot and does not utilize a standardized playing area, and coping with the varied terrains encountered on different courses is a key part of the game. The game at the highest level is played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, though recreational courses can be smaller, usually 9 holes. Each hole on the course must contain a tee box to start from, and a putting green containing the actual hole or cup (4.25 inches in diameter). There are other standard forms of terrain in between, such as the fairway, rough (long grass), sand traps (or “bunkers”), and various hazards (water, rocks) but each hole on a course is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.
Iis played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes in a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play.
