What are the objectives of golf?

The objective of golf is to get the ball in the hole in as few strokes as possible. Always remember to keep track of your scores on a note card as you will need to tally up your score once you are done playing.

What is the equipment used in golf?

The first step to playing golf is making sure you have a set of golf clubs. A regulation set of golf clubs consists of a driver, a three wood, a five wood, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 irons and lastly a putter and pitching wedge. It also helps to have a glove to wear to improve your grip on the club and to not get any blisters on your hands. Once you get to the course, you will tee off at the first hole.

Which golf club do you use?

Before teeing off, make sure to know where the hole is located. Courses will have signs at the beginning of each hole to tell you how many yards away the hole is. Make sure to also keep in mind the par for the hole. The lower the par the closer the hole is to you. For example, if the hole is a par three then you know the hole will be closer and you may not need to use a driver to tee off. If the hole is a par five it might be a good idea to use a driver to tee off to reach it. There are different scores (and names) for each hole that you complete. Dig the tee into the ground and gently lay the ball on top of the tee and you are all set to tee off.

How does scoring work in golf?

If a player scores two holes before par (i.e. shooting a two on a par four) then it is scored as an Eagle. If a player scores one under par (i.e. scoring a three on a par four) it is called a birdie. If a player scores even with the par it is called par. If a player scores one over the par (i.e. scoring a five on a par four) it is called a bogey. If a player scores two over par (i.e. scoring a six on a par four) it is called a double bogey. If a player scores three over par it is called a triple bogey, and so on.
