Golf Information

Golf on the Costa del Sol

Golf is an outdoor sport played with golf clubs and golf balls. Players / golfers use a club to hit the golf ball into a series of holes on the golf course, the aim is to use as few strokes as possible to complete the golf course.

An average golf course consists of either 9 or 18 holes and, unlike most ball games, golf does not have a standardised playing area, however each hole on a golf course must have a tee box and a putting green containing the actual hole.

On an 18 hole golf course each hole is played once (in the given order) and on a 9 hole golf course players can chose to either play each hole once, making for a "short game", or they can go for a "full round" by playing the course twice and therefore completing 18 holes.

Scoring is made up of the number of shots you take to complete the golf course, plus any penalties you may incur. The person who finishes the golf course with the least amount of shots is the winner.

Golf also allows people of varying levels to play against each other by giving the less experienced golf players a handicap (almost like allowing them extra shots).

Golf has many rules but unless it is a tournament a referee or umpire is not needed. Players are expected to know the rules and be honest about the number of shots they take etc.
