With almost 32,000 golf courses in the world, and England ranking one of the countries with the most courses relative to population, it doesn't take a genius to figure out how popular this sport is. Initially the sport professionally was dominated by Scottish players – where the game's thought to originate from, but the Americans have caught up and now have the most leading professional golfers. If you've never played golf before you might not know what to expect from the course. With a sprawling green, courses are usually peppered with hazards to make the game trickier. This might include sand bunkers, areas of grass roughage, and even ponds which lie in wait to swallow your balls!
If you're really unfamiliar with golf, here are the basic rules: Generally you play 18 holes in a set order. Each hit of the ball that takes you to putt the ball into the hole is counted, and the player with the least amount of hits wins.
It doesn't matter if you don't know the first thing about golf, because the main thing is that you're with your mates having a laugh and wandering round a course in sunny Bath chatting about rubbish is just that.
