Daa Golf Course 101  #golf

 

The object of golf is to hit a ball with a golf club into a hole in as few strokes as possible.
A standard golf course consists of 18 holes. Holes vary in length from about 50 yards to 600 yards in length. You may find the following features:

Tee box - Smooth level area at the beginning of each hole where play begins.

Fairway - Closely-mowed strip of grass usually extending from the tee box to the green.

Rough - Un-mowed areas along the sides of the fairway. Players want to avoid hitting the ball in the rough.

Hazards - Bodies of water or bunkers (sand traps) between the tee box and the green.

Putting green - Smooth, very closely mowed area of grass on which the hole is located. There you will find a flagstick is centered in the hole to show its position. On many courses, the flag is a different color (white, blue, or red) to signify whether the hole is in the front, center, or back of the green. The holes are actually cups placed into the ground that are 4 1/4 inches in diameter and at least 4 inches deep.

Clubs

A set of golf clubs can consist of up to 14 clubs. There are basically 3 different types of clubs that players may choose from:

Woods - A "wood" is a club that has a relatively wide head on it. It's usually made of wood, plastic, or a light metal. Woods are numbered from 1 to 7 according to their shape, and they are used for long drives. Most tee shots are taken with a wood known as a "driver."

Irons - An "iron" has a head that's narrow from the front to the back, and it's usually made of some type of metal. They are numbered from 1 to 10 according to the angle of their head, and they're used for shorter shots. Typically, the higher the number on the iron, the higher loft the ball will have when it's hit.

Putter - The "putter" is a light metal club with a flat face used for playing the ball when it's on the green.
