What You Want to Know About Golf Courses

A playing field in which the famous golf sport is played is usually very wide, with diverse terrain. Unlike other sports, there is no set standard area for a golf course which aids in the contribution to the different game levels. However, some modifications are not easy to avoid. It can be comprised of 18 holes arranged in a series with each having a tee box. The borders of the tee box are well defined using two tee markers. The markers bound the authorised tee area, the rough, fairway as well as hazards such as water and sand hazard in the course. The sand hazards are in most cases artificially made to create difficulty and excitement all wrapped in one. The fairway is the region between the green and tee box. In this area of the course, grass is maintained short and even.

Grass levels are often varied in order to raise the difficulty level of the game or to enable a putting (hitting the ball gently for it to roll on a green). The typical grass types used in golf courses include Zoysia, Bentgrass, perennial Ryegrass. Most of these grasses can withstand tough climatic conditions with constant research done on much better grass. However, some golf courses consist of 9 holes and in most cases used for recreation purposes. Players can go round the 9 holed course twice making it a complete 18 course. All the holes in a course are different in arrangement and layout. Some holes can be arranged in the same line direction as the teeing area while others may bend towards the right or left. The bending is known as a dogleg with those to the left are ‘dogleg left’ and ‘dogleg right’ for holes bending to right. other features of the golf course include pin, out of bounds, bunker and rough.
