The definition of golf

Golf is a traditional ball sport. The aim is to play a ball into the hole in as few shots as possible. There are official golf rules that every golfer must adhere to. A par is defined for each hole. A par is a stroke. You need to get the ball into the hole in a certain number of shots (par).


Etiquette on the golf course

The point of etiquette on the golf course is the safety and consideration of those on the course. There follows a short excerpt:

  • Safety on the golf course
    Before a shot, the golfer must make sure that nobody is standing so close to him that the club or ball could hit him.
  • Warnings
    If, despite all precautions, someone could be endangered, the golfer must immediately and loudly call "Fore!". Every golfer knows the term.
  • What to do when you hear "Fore!"
    Immediately place your arms over your head to protect it and duck.
  • Consideration
    No one may move, speak or stand close to or behind the hole when a golfer plays a shot.
  • Speed
    The game must always be played without delay.
  • Playing through
    Twosomes have the right to overtake threesomes or foursomes. Single players do not have any right over other groups and must let all other groups overtake them.
  • Care for the course
    Damage to the golf course must be avoided. However, if a piece of grass is removed by a club, causing a divot, it must be replaced and trodden firmly back into place. Furthermore, any pitchmarks caused by the ball landing on the green must be repaired using a pitchfork.
