Basics of golf:

Golf is a sport in which players use various clubs to hit their golf balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.

Golf, unlike other ball games, does not use a standardised playing area. Playing on varied terrains encountered on different courses is a vital part of the game. The game is typically played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, although recreational courses can be smaller, often having nine holes.

Each hole on a course must have a tee box to start from and a putting green with the actual hole or cup (11 cm) in diameter. There are other standard forms of terrain in between, such as the fairway (short grass), rough (longer grass), bunkers (sand), and various hazards (water, rocks) but each hole on a course is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

Golf is played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes in a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play. Stroke play is the most commonly seen format at all levels, but most especially at the elite level.
