The game of golf involves a ball and different clubs where the players choose among the clubs could and which among them could give them the best shot and could score the ball in a hole. Unlike most games, golf does not need a standardized court. Golf courses vary in design and space and this is what makes the game unique. The only requirement is for the courses to have 9 to 18 holes. However, like any other game, there are certain rules and golfing regulations that players are to follow.
In every game, the number of strokes each golfer makes is very important. Although, each golfer has his own strokes in playing. Golf uses the match play scoring system where the player gets a point in every hole where they beat their opponents.
This game was originated in Scotland sometime in the 12th century as shepherds kick the stones to small rabbit holes and those who scores first wins the game. This goal is still used in golfing these days and the only difference is that golfers use clubs instead of just kicking the ball.
Over the years, golfing has evolved from being just a simple pastime to a more serious competition. Below are some of the types of golf competitions:
Stroke or Medal Play
This type of golfing is the most common one as it is used in most tournaments. This type of competition requires the golfers to complete all 18 holes and the one with the least number of strokes wins.
In a match play, there are two teams that completes the holes and the team that scores the most wins. Match plays are mostly used in golf clubs with many club members and since this type of competition is played by teams, the rules and regulations must be strictly followed by each golfers.
In scramble, the best shot made by a golfer is decided after he hits the balls in the hole. Then the other players copy the same strokes until the game ends. Most golfers play this game for its simple mechanics.
In this type of golf competition, a ‘skin’ which is a bag of money is placed in each hole and the players that hit the hole gets the skin and each of them compete to score first than the rest. The bag of money is called the ‘skin’ because the bag is literally made of skin.
This competition also known as the ‘last man standing’ is also very popular because of its exciting mechanics; the players in this game are first required to provide a number of strokes which they are only allowed to use within the game and during the actual game, they are only allowed to use the number of strokes they provided.
