This contest is fueled by the following news: The first written reference about golf, which is considered to be the beginning of the official history of the game, dates back to 1457. At that time, King James prohibited the golf game, because the soldiers neglected their basic duty of bow and arrow shooting training for the sake of the game. The ban was manifested in Parliament's resolution of Scotland. How to play golf: The purpose of the game is the following: It is necessary to put the ball into 18 holes by using various golf clubs (Wood, Iron, Putter), which should be no be less than 2 and not more than 14 in number. The hole is both an aperture made in the ground, into which the ball is driven, as well as a specially prepared area, running into several hundreds of meters and consisting of a start zone (Tee), a basic zone (fairway) and a special platform (green) in which the hole is made. All these zones differ in grass height and in the presence of obstacles. Bunkers, water barriers, bushes, flowers, high grass, etc are the obstacles. If a golf player makes correct, accurate hits, then he can make the ball reach the fairway and with several (depending on the game level) hits along the fairway, the player can put the ball on the green. The green is a platform with ideal grass, like a carpet or mat. The ball rolls along the green smoothly and should fall into the hole after being hit by the putter. Golf etiquette is the important component in a golf game. Golf is a game of true gentlemen and its etiquette is a carefully preserved tradition, which did not undergo any changes for the entire history of the existence of the game. First of all, it is good manners, respect towards partners and contenders, to upkeep the field. Three important principles are to be remembered in a golf game: Play on the field as it is; Play the ball as it lies; And if both the above mentioned things are impossible, play fair; Is it necessary to play expensive golf? It is absolutely not so. On the other hand, it is meaningless to play golf without proper training. First, it is necessary to learn how to use the clubs and ball. It is necessary and mandatory to take golf lessons and to play on special training apparatus, to fine-tune the skills at home and at work. For example, the training for the successful execution of a putt, the accuracy of which determines almost half of the success is possible at home and in the office. You may have to spend a maximum of 200 dollars. And if it is to buy an inexpensive putter ($20), a "petal" hole and some balls (2-4 dollars each), then it is possible to save not only on training but mini-tournaments can also be arranged. The equipment for the game should not necessarily be expensive. To begin with, it is possible to play with inexpensive clubs. The price of the already mentioned putter can vary from 20 to 120 dollars or more. A wood set (3 pieces) can be found in Moscow for somewhere between 100 dollars and 500 or above. Same thing with the iron set (9 pieces). If there is a possibility of buying clubs abroad, then it is possible to save a lot: entire sets can be bought for somewhere between 120–150 dollars. Footwear for the golf game should not cause damage to the lawn –spikes and cowboy's boots are not to be used. Even now, some amateurs in Russia play golf using jogging shoes with a flat sole (tennis shoes). But, first of all, tennis shoes skid and secondly get wet. It is better to buy special boots with special spikes (it is better to go for "soft") which cost around 100-150 dollars. They are put on sale in clubs, in specialized shops or in Internet shops. It is necessary to remember that playing golf in jeans and a shirt without a collar is not acceptable. Such are the traditions of the golf game. Is it possible to make a golf course on your own? It is barely possible. The golf course is a difficult set of constructions; first of all, drainage, special relief and maintenance of lawns in the appropriate form. A single person cannot manage the entire thing. For the most simple golf course the "pitch and putt", it is necessary to have somewhere in the region of three hectares of land and 100 000 dollars. For a "full-scale" golf course and club, it is necessary to have about 100 hectares and millions of dollars. It is possible to independently construct only a training platform for patting. 50 sqm of land is enough for this purpose. Make sure that the grass height should be 4mm because not every lawn mower can ensure a 4mm grass height. A mini golf course (patting) can be created in a closed premises.
