Golf is a sport. It is played with a small white ball called a golf ball.

Rules[edit | edit source]

In golf, the goal is to get the golf ball into the hole with as few shots as possible. "Rounds" of golf are typically played in 18 or 9 different holes.

Types of golf clubs include Irons. There are 9 types of irons, the higher the number, the less powerful, and 1, 3, and 5 woods. Woods are more powerful than Irons, but like irons the lower the number the more powerful.

Golf courses will typically have pits of sand, also known as "bunkers". When a ball lands in a bunker, the only club a player may use is called a sand wedge.

A club known as a putter is often used by golfers when they are close to the hole.
