Important Terms You’ll Need to Know to Understand Golf

Created in 15th century Scotland, golf is a club-and-ball sport where players try to hit a small white ball into a hole in as few strokes as possible. Since its inception, the game has become extremely popular, both worldwide and stateside. Here in the United States, warm-weather states, such as Florida, have become destinations for both regular golfers, amateur players, and even professionals throughout the year. The Sunshine State is home to numerous golf courses, making the sport a common pastime for many. But, before playing, or simply watching and understanding the sport, there are a few important terms to know:

  • Par – Courses typically contain 18 holes total. Each hole is assigned a number of strokes expected before completion – three, four, or five – based on the length and difficulty of the hole. This number is referred to as “par.” Shooting more strokes is bad, while shooting under par is desired.

  • Birdie – This term is used to describe scoring one stroke under the par for a hole. So, scoring a three on a par-four would result in a birdie. Scoring two under par is an eagle and shooting one-over par is a bogey.

  • Fairway – This term refers to the short grass on the course where players try to hit the ball to set up their next shot as they make their way to the hole. Hitting from this part of a hole is desirable, as opposed to hitting the ball into higher grass (known as rough). Hitting from the fairway is easier than hitting from high grass.

  • Green – The green is the short, pristine grass on which the hole (or cup) is located. When the ball is finally hit onto the green, players can putt the ball into the cup to finish the hole.

Anyone interested in the game of golf can watch professional tournaments on television or simply visit one of the courses located nearby our Mount Dora apartment community. To learn more, contact the Veranda Apartment Homes leasing office today.
