GOLF STUDY GUIDE ABOUT GOLF: Golf is a game in which all individuals can play regardless of size, strength, age or gender. It’s a game in which an individual may play alone or with others. It may be played for fun or for competition. The exact origin of golf is unknown. However, it is speculated that shepards while tending their flocks played a game similar to golf in which they hit stones and pebbles with their crooks. Through the centuries a stroking game similar to that of the shepards evolved. Golf as we play it today on a golf course with 9 or 18 holes had its origin in St. Andrew’s, Scotland. The game of golf was introduced to the United States around 1880 by Robert Reid. OBJECT OF GOLF: The object of golf is to progress from the teeing area to the green and into the hole in the fewest number of strokes. The total number of strokes taken on a hole is recorded as a score. At the end of 9 or 18 holes, the scores on each hole are added for a total score for the golf course. GOLF HOLES: Individual golf holes vary in length from about 85 yards to 600 yards. Holes are categorized by the length or total yardage from the tee to the cup or center of the green. Each hole has a designated par which is the established stroke standard for the given length of the hole in yards. The designated pars are 3 (shorter length holes), 4 (medium length holes) and 5 (longer length holes). PARTS OF A GOLF HOLE
