Golf Information and Equipment
Golf has come
a long way from being a sport played with wooden clubs and a ball packed
tightly with feathers. Its popularity has skyrocketed in the U.S. and
Britain since the 1920's, and the sport has more recently enjoyed growing
popularity in continental Europe, Canada, and Japan. Today, the U.S.
alone has over 16,000 golf courses. Golf has also branched out into
other popular variations such as mini-golf, pitch-&-putt,
and practice facilities such as putting greens and driving
A golf course is divided into 18 holes. Each hole starts at the tee, and ends at the hole marked with a coloured flag. In between the tee and the hole are different playing surfaces requiring the use of different clubs. The fairway and green both have smooth, even surfaces, while the bunkers and roughs have hazards and surfaces that are more difficult to play through.
