The game of golf is played in an area of land designated as a golf course. A course consists of a series of holes, which consist of a teeing area, fairways, rough and other hazards, and the green with the pin and cup. A typical golf course consists of eighteen holes, but many only have nine. Many older golf courses, often coastal, are golf links, of a different style to others.
Most courses have only 3, 4, and 5 par holes although some courses, but not all courses, include par 6 holes. The average distances for the various holes are as follows.
* Par 3 300 yards and below
* Par 4 301 - 500 yards
* Par 5 500 - 650 yards
* Par 6 651 yards and up
Harder or easier courses may have longer or shorter distances,... more
