Golf is an ancient game in which the ball was driven into the hole with a wooden stick or a stick. Prototype golf was played probably in all countries, where there was something resembling a lawn (the shepherds in the pastures), but because many countries attribute to themselves the fact of birth of golf.
The very first written mention about golf, which is considered to be the beginning of the official history of the game, refers to 1457. That’s when King James banned the game of golf, because soldiers ignored their fundamental duty - training in archery – and played golf. The ban was expressed in the resolution of the Scottish Parliament.
The essence of the game is following. Using a variety of clubs (wood, iron and putter), at least two and not more than 14 to get the ball in 18 holes. Hole is called either directly itself a hole in the ground where the ball is rolled, or specially prepared pitch length of a few hundred meters, and consists of starting area (tee) of the main zone (fairway), and a special forum (green) where hole is cut. All these zones are different heights of grass and the presence of obstacles. Among the obstacles can be sand traps - bunkers, water obstacles, shrubbery, flowers, tall grass, etc. If a golfer makes correct, accurate clubs, then using club “tee” he gets the ball on the fairway, with few (depending on the level of the game) clubs the ball spends on the fairway and then golfer knocks it on the green. Green is a platform with an ideal grass like carpet. On this platform the ball can roll smoothly, and after clubbing it should fall into the hole. An important component of the golf is golf etiquette. Golf is a game of true gentlemen, and its etiquette - carefully preserved tradition, that undergoes almost no change in the history of the game. First of all, they are good manners, respect for partners and competitors, maintaining order on courses.
Golf is a game where player clubs a ball with a stick from a specially prepared area, known as the course, “tee”, through the “fairway” and “Rough”in the direction of a specially prepared other zones, which are located at hole, known as “putting green”. The essence of the game is: starting the game from the zone “tee”, which is located on the “putting green” hole, go all holes with minimum number of clubs. Round of golf consists of playing on 18 such holes.
The 3 main principles of golf:
- Play on the field, as it is.
- Play the ball as it lies.
- And if neither one thing nor the other can not be, act with justice
