Golf is a game played with a club (stick) and ball, where players hit balls into a series of holes with few strokes on a course (playing area) and mostly the game gets highlighted in major Sporting news magazine.
Golf playing doesn’t require a standardized playing area, it can be tea area, rough and other hazards with a course of either 9 or 18 holes.
Tees (upon which balls are placed) are made of wood or plastic material.
Sometimes the levels of grass are varied to increase difficulty for strokes.
Though many holes are provided with a direct line of sight from teeing place or area to the green, some holes may bend towards left or right. This is commonly called a “dogleg”.
When the hole bends towards left, it’s a “dogleg left” and if towards right it’s a “dogleg right”. There is “double dogleg”, when hole’s direction bends twice.
When this golf game played to seaside courses or natural sandy soil inland, it’s so called “golf links”.
A golfer could be a winner when he/she completes the reach with minimum number of strokes and par score.
