One of the most special aspects of golf is that it can be played by people of all ages and abilities - girls and boys, and men and women alike. Golf spans all generations and can become your sport of choice for life. After all, what other sport can you name where a 5-year old and 80-year old can play together and both be competitive?
Golf is exciting to play, challenging, healthy and indeed, a great way to make new friends. It is a precision club-and-ball sport, in which competing players (golfers), using many types of clubs, attempt to hit balls into each hole on a golf course while employing the fewest number of strokes.
The exact origins of the sport of golf are unclear. The most widely accepted theory is that this sport originated in Scotland in the High Middle Ages. It is one of the few ball games that does not require a standardized playing area. Instead, the game is played on golf "courses", each of which features a unique design, although courses typically consist of either nine or 18 holes.
Golf is defined, in the rules of golf, as "playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules." Its terminology is unique to the great sport. Golf competition is generally played for the lowest number of strokes by an individual, known simply as stroke play, or the lowest score on the most individual holes during a complete round by an individual or team, known as match play.
Some people think that it costs a lot of money to play golf, mainly because they see the exclusive clubs hosting major tournaments and think all clubs are like that. It just doesn't have to be like that. There are lots of ways to develop your golfing interest without breaking the bank!
