A golf course is a series of holes on greens, sands and other surfaces on a big piece of land specially designed for a game of golf. A standard golf course has 18 holes while some have 9, 27 or 36 holes. Additionally, a Par 3 exists. There are many different ways of styles of designing a golf course depending on the needs and budget. Here is a brief description of a standard golf course.
The first section is known as tee-box where there is usually more than one box available for the players to place their ball. The tee-box is raised slightly higher than the ground and is usually used at selected areas such as the ladies’ tee, men’s tee and juniors’ tee.
Next is the fairway which is located between the teeing area and the greens. This location is where players are to be more adventurous during their game. And between the tee-box area and fairway is the rough where you see grass cut higher than the fairway.
For the greens or also known as putting green is usually cut short so that the golf ball can roll a distance. There are many types of grass that a golf course can use such as rye grass, Zoysiagrass, Bent grass and Kentucky bluegrass. Although there are many different types of grass but not all are suitable for all climates.
The type of hazards of the course can either be water hazards such as rivers and lakes. Man made hazards such as bunkers that are usually filled with sands and may be slightly covered can exist too as well as natural hazards such as closely compacted vegetations.
Building a golf course is costly not only on the layout but also the maintenance. For every cup to collect the golf ball can be found within the greens with a diameter of 4.25 inches each and at least 3.94 inches deep. You will know there is a cup when you see a pole with a flag positioned at the specific place.
In every golf course, there must be entrance signs available for references to the players.
