What is the golf?

Golf is a sport of precision which aims to introduce a ball into the holes that are distributed in the field with the least number of strokes, using for each type of shot one among a set of sticks slightly different from each other, since the head of the stick has different grades as well as the rods have different lengths. Fewer degrees, greater length of the rod and therefore more distance. Maximum 14 clubs can be. Golf is called that practice golfer.


In 1744, the first players Association was founded in Scotland, and in 1745, also in the United Kingdom, was created the first rules of golf. The first golf associations were the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (1744) and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (1754).


Golf is practiced in a field or field of natural grass outdoors. Unlike many sports, golf does not have a standardized playing surface. A golf course occupies a wide area and consists, generally, of 9 or 18 partial routes. Most of the courses are 18 holes. At the end of each of these routes there is a hole on the surface of insert the ball with the lowest number of hits; by extension, each partial travels is also called pit. The order of the hole on the Court gives its name to each one of them: pit 1, 2, etc. up to the pit pit 9 or hole 18 depending on the case. At some golf courses, to the pits will give them also other names Memorial, commercial or taken from any of its features: its difficulty, its design, names of flowers, etc.
