Golf is a game where the golfers face a tough challenge of finding the right gear that could let them score. Unlike most games, golf does not need a standardized court. Golf courses vary in design and space and this is what makes the game unique. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. Yet there are rules and regulations set for each game.
In every game, the number of strokes each golfer makes is very important. The strokes vary from each golfer. In golf, each player has to defeat his opponent in a match play scoring system.
This game was originated in Scotland sometime in the 12th century as shepherds kick the stones to small rabbit holes and those who scores first wins the game. Until this day, the same mechanics is used in the game but with the use of high end gears.
Over the years, golfing has evolved from being just a simple pastime to a more serious competition. Below are some of the types of golf competitions:
