The 18-hole round was created at the Old Course at St Andrews in 1764.
Golf's first major, and the world's oldest tournament in existence, is The Open Championship, also known as the British Open, which was first played in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland. trace the sport back to the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball.
The game at the highest level is played on a course with an arranged progression of 18 holes, though recreational courses can be smaller, usually 9 holes.
Each hole on the course must contain a tee box to start from, and a putting green containing the actual hole or cup (4.25 inches in diameter).
This gave rise to the term "golf links", particularly applied to seaside courses and those built on naturally sandy soil inland.
Playing a hole on a golf course is initiated by putting a ball into play by striking it with a club on the teeing ground (also called the tee box, or simply the tee).
For this first shot on each hole, it is allowed but not required for the golfer to place the ball on a tee prior to striking it.
The hole is called a "dogleg left" if the hole angles leftwards and "dogleg right" if it bends right.
Sometimes, a hole's direction may bend twice; this is called a "double dogleg".
