Golf Is Fun

Emma Chen

You might think that golf is boring, but it is actually very fun and interesting.

Golf is played using various clubs and a ball. The goal of golf is to get the ball into the hole in the least amount of strokes. It is played on a golf course that generally has 9 or 18 holes. Each hole has teeing grounds, the fairway, the rough, a putting green with a flag-stick and a cup/hole, and some obstacles such as bunkers, trees, and water hazards. The height of the grass are varied to increase difficulty, or to allow for putting on the green.

The teeing grounds are where you start the hole. The fairway is normal-height grass between the teeing grounds and the green. The rough is tall grass on both sides of the fairway. The putting green has short grass. There is a flag-stick in the cup/hole on the green.
