No matter where you play golf in Los Angeles, you will find some similarities as to all of the different parts that make up a golf course.
A golf course is made up of a series of holes, which includes not only the cup where the ball is headed, but also the length from the tee to the green.

The green is comprised of short grass that surrounds the cup. Most golf courses come equipped with eighteen holes, although there are shorter executive courses available.
The tee is also called the teeing ground. This is the place from which the beginning stroke on each hole is hit. The teeing ground is also the place where a player may use a golf tee to help make the shot easier. There are different distances on tees based on the classification of the game, whether it is for men or women, or professional or amateur competition.
After the first stroke, the golfer goes to where the ball landed, and continues to hit the ball toward the green. The ball might have landed on the fairway or the rough. The fairway has short grass and the rough has long grass, and so it is easier to hit and control the ball from the fairway than from the rough.
Golf courses also include hazards. They can be made up of water; bunkers, also known as sand traps; or vegetation. If the golf ball ends up in a hazard, there are special rules that must be adhered to in order to get the ball back into play. You can play the ball where it rests in the hazard without any penalties, but if you cannot play it from there, you are allowed to move it to another location, but you get a penalty for doing that.
Eventually you make it to the putting green. This is where you putt the ball towards the cup so that it comes to rest inside the cup.
Fabulous golf courses, including Skylinks, Simi Hills, Westchester, Los Verdes, La Mirada, El Dorado, and Heartwell, await you in Los Angeles, so make your reservations today.
