Origins of golfing
Because there are many ball games that could have been a precursor to the sport, there is some debate as to the origins of golf. However, modern golf as it is played today originated in Scotland, and the first 18-hole golf course was created in 1764 at the Old Course in the coastal town of St Andrews. Golf became so popular in 15th century Scotland that king James II banned it to keep young men from being distracted from learning other skills such as archery. A little over 50 years later though, one of his successors, James IV, lifted the ban after he took up golf himself and became an enthusiastic player.
A golf course is made up of various areas where specific moves may take place, and elements that pose challenges to the player. The teeing ground is where the game begins. Players can pin their tee in the tee box, place their ball on top to elevate it from the ground for a clear shot, and strike the ball to commence play. The ball must cross a grassy area called the fairway. While the grass here is even and short, the fairway is surrounded by bushy areas called roughs, and contains a number of hazards such as water features and sandy bunkers that can trap the ball. Surrounding the flagstick and the hole is the putting green. This is an area for very precise striking in the last phase of the course, where the ground is very even and the green is even more closely trimmed.
