How to Play Golf

Golf is a great sort. All ages play the game, from child to elder. Lots of people enjoy playing golf for the fun of it. I think it builds the basic physical skills: power, strength, stamina, and more. We see golf as a fun sport to play, and the rules are simple as pie.

In golf, you hit a ball with a golf club many times until you can get it inside a hole. If you have least number of hits at the end of the game, you win. The length of the course usually judges how many strokes you need for par, which is what the average player should get, which is usually the course’s recommended strokes. If you can get your strokes below par, you will win games.

Ground types are usually the main thing that’s being put into play. It can be an advantage or a disadvantage to be in these areas. The fairway is a very nice terrain to land on when you’ve taken your first stroke. It’s easier to hit the ball on the fairway, especially because of how low the grass is in that terrain. The green is where the hole is located, and you will use a putter to get the ball into the hole. The rough isn’t a good place to hit the ball in. If you hit it in that area, it’s just like playing golf in your backyard: playing with higher grass than normal. However, the bunker is far worse than hitting it in the rough. Now that it’s landed inside a literal sand pit, you really have to use a chip shot to get this ball out of the bunker.

There are many different clubs out there, and you must have at least 5 of these clubs. The driver is usually the club for the job when you hit with the tee. The wood is a good idea for hitting balls that are 200-300 yards away from the hole, and on the fairway with no tee. The hybrid clubs are usually for swinging in the rough, and the irons are used for just a basic 100-200 yard hit to get a nice approach to the green, with 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 irons. The higher the number, the less yards it goes. The wedges are just for an approach to the green that is about 20-50 yards away. The putter is used for putting the ball into the hole on the green, as I said earlier on.

Golf is a good game that many play for fun, professional competition, and for just-for-fun competitions that are as fun as eating pie, cake, or pizza. Golf is a great sport for the whole world. I think it’s fun. I’ve played before. Maybe you want to, too.

    Sean, your grandpa and grandma enjoy playing golf too. We started to play it from 1988.
    Now we are elder but we practise golf swing every day. Sometimes we go to the field for enjoying golf.
    Sean, if you come to Korea, let’s go to the field to play the golf.


  2. Wow, I like how you summarized what the clubs in my golf bag are used for, “the higher the number, the less yards it goes”! I’m a adult-beginner to golf, and I am trying to learn as much as possible. So many technicalities and ettiquetes to grasp on top of swinging it correctly! 🙂
