What is Golf?

Golf is a precision club and ball sport, in which competing players (or golfers) use many types of clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a golf course using the fewest number of strokes. Golf is defined, in the rules of golf, as "playing a ball with a club from the teeing ground into the hole by a stroke or successive strokes in accordance with the Rules."

It is one of the few ball games that does not require a standardized playing area. Instead, the game is played on a "course", generally consisting of an arranged progression of either 9 or 18 "holes". Each hole on the course must contain a "tee box" and a "putting green" with the actual hole, and there are various other standardized forms of terrain in between such as the fairway, rough, and hazards, but each hole on a course and indeed among virtually all courses is unique in its specific layout and arrangement.

Golfing can be one of the best spots and most frustrating!

My sister and I fortunate to each have sons who are professional golfers.  Her son, Randy travel’s the PGA tour selling golf equipment and my son Warren teaches golf and helps run a Pro shop in Seattle.  Pretty cool!  She spent years helping young golfers through Junior Golf.

Family golf is a wonderful way to opportunity to share and enjoy memories and outings and something the entire family can do for years.  So go ahead, take a vacation to one of the many family friendly golf resorts and have a blast!
