Golf, unlike most ball games, cannot and does not use a standardized playground, and overcoming the diversity of terrain found in various games is a key part of the game. The game at the usual level is played on a course with an organized 18-hole progression, although recreational games can be smaller, often with 9 holes. Each of the holes in the course must contain a tee box from which to start, and a putting green containing the actual hole or cup (4.25 inches in diameter). Between them there are other standard forms of terrain, such as fairway, rough (long grass), bunkers (or “sand traps”) and various hazards (water, stones), but each hole in the course is unique in its particular layout and arrangement.

Golf is played for the least number of strokes than a person known as a stroke play or the lowest score of the most individual holes in a full round of a person or team known as a match play. Stroke play is the most common format at all levels, but mostly at the elite level.

The modern game of golf originated in Scotland from the 15th century. The 18-hole circle was created in the old course at the Old Course at St Andrews in 1764. The world’s oldest golf tournament is The Open Championship, also known as the British Open, which was first performed in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland.
