Golf course

Golf course -
A golf course consists of a sequence of holes, every one with a teeing ground so as to is decide rotten by two markers screening the bounds of the official tee area, fairway, rough and other hazards, and the putting organic surrounded by the fringe with the pin (normally a flagstick) and cup.
The levels of grass are varied to boost complexity, or to allow instead of putting in the casing of the green. While many holes are designed with a dictate line-of-sight from the teeing area to the green, some holes may bend either to the left or to the right. This is commonly called a "dogleg", in reference to a dog's knee. The hole is called a "dogleg left" if the hole angles leftwards and "dogleg right" if it bends exact. Sometimes, a hole's direction can bend twice; this is called a "double dogleg".
A typical golf course consists of 18 holes, but nine-hole courses are nothing special and can be played twice through in support of a full around of 18 holes.
Early on Scottish golf courses were primarily laid exposed on links ground, soil-covered sand dunes openly inland from beaches. This gave mound to the label "golf links", particularly applied to seaside courses and those built on openly sandy soil inland.
The chief 18-hole golf course in the United States was located on a sheep farm in Downers Grove, Illinois, in 1892. The course is still situated nearby now.
