The absolute Golf Sport No-Gos

Important! Please observe the following Points!
As the stereotype „Golf as meetingpoint for the rich ones“ is meanwhile totally antiquated, nowadays golf – and one of the most popular gamemode - versions „matchplay“ - are exercised with pleasure just under professionals as well as among beginners. But especially for beginners it is highly important to be well prepared for starting golf. To avoid disgrace and beginner's mistake, we've just listed the five worst sins in golf or matchplay for you:

1. Take care of your Bag!
Never put you bag and trolley-suitcase on the pre-green or the green of the golf course, because otherwise you could probably interfere in your teammates' putt line.

2. Never distract any players by talking!
As golf is a variation of team sports, it is essential to face other golfers with respect and politeness. If you see another golfer preparing oneself directly before the tee off, he will be super concentrated and for reasons of fairplay and respect, you should never distract him by moving or talking at this stage.

3. Watch out for the putt line!
Never step on the putt line, thus the line between golf hole and golf ball. Neither on your own nor on the one of any other golf player.

4. Straighten the damaged green after the shot!
The golf course mainly consists of perfectly prepared greens, but to maintain this, it is mandatory that every golfer protects it. As the rules of golf imply that you are not allowed to modify the green – especially not before your golf shot - you can only protect the green by not damaging it. So please be vigilant about your spikes to not cause turf damage! Also if you damaged it by your tee off, please straighten the green aft.

5. Maintain a sufficient safety distance!
To minimize the risk of injury: Never shot your golf ball if there is any person nearby who could be hurt by your shot! A sufficient safety distance is substantial in golfing!

Generally all golf courses are based on the official golf rules, but occasionally golf clubs do also have individual instructions for their club. If you want to become a good and acclaimed golfer, you should always adhere to the rules and always be proactive in fairplay and honesty. In order to never start off with the wrong foot at the golf course, you should always and in every period of your carreer - thus as beginner, amateur or professional - have those no-gos in your mind!

Golf Game Variations

Stroke Play, Match Play and Stableford: There are many different game versions that bring variety to the normal golf game. As these golf formats get more popular we has been thinking about publishing their list of the most important official and unofficial golf formats.

FIRSTLY EVERY GOLFER SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE FOUNDATION OF GAME FORMATS:

Match Play „Single“ or „Foursome“
The primary game variation of golf is called match play. Match play can be played by beginners, as well as advanced golfers. On „Single“-match play, two golfers play against one other, on „Foursome“ two teams with two players compete against each other. The golfer or the team, which reaches the lower score, wins a hole, depending on the scoring variation, the points are being added up or subtracted. After finishing the round, the side with the most points wins. If both teams need the same amount of shots, the hole gets halved. If the Teams play tie, extra holes can be added, or if both sides agree with this result, they can do without these extra holes. In this game variant shots, holes or rounds can be given away and not be returned. If a golfer is sure about the winning of his opponent, he can give him a shot, with this shot he wins the hole. When playing „Foursome“, the golfers of one team play alternately with the same golf ball.

Stroke Play/ Medal Play
When playing „Stroke Play“, the total number of strokes on all 18 holes are added up. After every hole, the score is been written down. The sum of all strokes is called the gross score, to receive the net score, the handicap is subtracted from the gross score. If a rule violation takes place, two more strokes are added. The golfer with the lowest net score wins.

THE FOLLOWING BETTING VARIATIONS ARE MODIFICATIONS OF STROKE PLAY:

Stableford
The biggest difference between classic Stroke Play and Stableford is, that the score is charged with regard to a fixed score at each hole. If a golfer´s score is more than one over the fixed score, he obtains 0 Points, if his score is one under the fixed score, he gets 1 Point. If both scores are equal, he receives 2 Points. Is his score is one Point under the fixed score, he receives 3 Points and so on. One benefit of this game variation is, that the golfer can not loose points. The competitor with the highest score wins. The score can be gross or net, whereby the actually needed strokes result in the gross score. To figure out the net score, the determined scores are being subtracted. The determined scores are relatively to the level of the golf course.

Stroke Play against Par
The gross score is the result of every hole, that is played better than the fixed score with +1 Point, every hole which score is inferior than the fixed score with -1 Point and every holes´ score that is equal to the fixed score with 0 Points. To receive the net score, the handicap of a golfer is splitted over all holes. The gross strokes, which the golfer played equal to or under the fixed score get noted down and the competitor with the highest score wins.

THERE ARE A FEW OTHER UNOFFICIAL GAME VARIATIONS IN THE GOLF SPORT:

Aggregat
A game version, in which two teams compete against each other is called „Aggregat“. To determine the winner, the scores of a team are being added up.

Battle Golf
„Battle Golf“ is an unofficial variant of match play. In this version, the winner of each hole has the option to take a golf club from his opponent. During the game, a golfer has the chance to take his own golf club back. The rules of this game variation can be individual modified, but there´s one inflexible rule, which says, that it´s not possible to take the putter from the other golfer.

Bingo Bango Bongo
In the golf format „Bingo Bango Bongo“ the handicap remains unnoticed, a preset order is more important. The golfer, which golf ball first reaches the green, rests closest to the flag or reaches the hole receives 1 Point.

Bridge
Another golf variant played by two golfers or two teams is called „Bridge“. In „Bridge“ a fixed amount of points or money set to each hole. If this golf format is played with „Foursome“, the members of one team make a bet on the number of strokes (net or gross) they think the other team needs to play the hole. The other team has three possibilities: They can take the bet, take the bet and double it or bid lower than the bet number of strokes. If one side takes the bet and doubles it, the other side has the option to double back.

Chapman Foursome/Chapman System
„Chapman Foursome“ is another golf competition format named after Dick Chapman. In this golf variant both golfers of a team tee off, after that they switch their balls. Afterwards they select the best of the second shots and play alternately until the ball is holed.

Eclectic
A unofficial version of stroke play is called „Eclectic“. Each golfer plays a few rounds and only the best score on each hole are ranked.

Flag Competition/Flags
„Flags“ is a golf variant in which each golfer achieves a fixed number of strokes and a flag with their name on it. The golfers play the golf course until their strokes run out, the flag is sticked in the ground at the position from which their final shot is played. The player, whose flag is closest to the hole, wins.

Fourball/Bestball
„Fourball“ is another golf competition format that can be played either as stroke play or match play. „Bestball“ is another name for this golf variant, to play „Bestball“ two teams each with two golfers play against each other. A special feature of this game is, that every golfer plays with his own golf ball, but only the best ball is ranked.

Foursome
If golfers play „Foursome“ two teams with two players play with one golf ball. The team members are trying to play the hole, „Foursome“ can be played either as stroke play or as match play. Another name for „Foursome“ is „Alternate Shot“.

Greensome/Bloodsome
The competition format „Greensome“ is a golf variant for two 2-person teams. In this Foursome variation both players of a team tee off. The best ball is selected and then played alternately until this ball is holed.

Nassau
„Nassau“ is the most famous betting variation, named after the „Nassau Country Club“. In this golf variant are three bets in one game, the first game is about the first 9 holes, the second about the last 9 holes and the third game is about the total 18 holes. The valuation can be different, for example a golfer can win three times, this means one time in every game. Another possibility is with four units, in this version a golfer has the chance to gain one unit in the first two games and two units in the whole round. At least there´s another option, in which a player has the opportunity to win one unit in the first game and two units in the second and third game.

One Ball
„One Ball“ is a golf format in which two golfers play „Alternate shot“.

Scramble
The golf format „Scramble“ is one of the primary forms of tournaments and charity events. This game variant is played with 2-person teams or 4-person teams. After teeing off, the best of the tee shots is selected and all players play the following shot from this point. After the second shot, all golfers play their ball from the position of the best ball and so on.

Skin Game
The „Skin Game“ is a match play variant in which each hole has a fixed value. Usually the golfers have the chance to win money.

String/String It Out
A unofficial game format to play in a group of friends is called „String It Out“. Adapted to their handicap, each golfer gets a various lenght of string. Every player has the chance to move their ball from a difficult position, the covered distance is going to be cut from their piece of string. At the end of the 18-hole round, the remaining string is useless.

IN ADDITION TO THE CLASSIC GOLF BETTING FORMATS, THERE ARE SOME SIDE BETS:

Arnies
A side bet called „Arnies“ is named for Arnold Palmer. In this golf format, a golfer receives points, if he makes par on a hole without ever being in the fairway.

Barky
In the betting format „Barky“ a golfer receives points if he makes par after hitting a tree.

Hogans/Hogies
„Hogans“ named after Ben Hogan is a side bet golf format in which a golfer has the chance to receive points when hit the fairway or the green and then plays par.

Thai-Ger Line Golf Pattaya - Golf Equipment

Golf Equipment – Must Haves in your Golf Bag

GOLF CLUBS

The prerequisite for playing golf are 14 golf clubs, the player decides himself, with which type of golf clubs he wants to play. He has the choice between a driver, whereby you can achieve the biggest width, a wood, that is basically used for drive off or an iron for medium long shots. In addition a hybrid or rescue golf club combines abilities of irons and woods. Furthermore, a golfer can use wedges, these are especially useful for short shots or shots from difficult situations. At least, a putter is very useful for playing on the green. As the equipment is basically adapted for right-hander, it is important for left-hander to make sure about the correlate equipment. For every golf club, the golfer should take enough time for testing it with some swings and taking good consulting from a pro.

GOLF BAG

To haul the golf clubs, a golf bag is necessary, a golfer can decide between nylon-bags, bags with built-in stand or trolleys. For cleaning the golf clubs, a golf towel can also be attached on the bag.

GOLF GLOVE

The golf equipment of an active golfer should also include a golf glove. This helps against blisters and offers additional stability.

GOLF SHOES

To assure his position, the golfer should wear special golf shoes. For practising on the driving range, solid shoes are sufficient, but on the golf course, particular golf shoes are essential. By spikes on the soles, a safe support is ensured. Due to the long distances between each holes on a 9- or 18-hole course, the comfort of the shoes is relevant.

GOLF UMBRELLA

If the weather is bad, a golf umbrella with large diameter is necessary to protect the golfer from rain during the round. The stability of this special umbrella is important.

GOLF BALLS

Moreover golf balls are a requirement for playing golf. During the match, some balls often sink into a water hazard. This so-called "Lake Balls" are sold for a lower price, after beeing fetched out the water. A special type of golf balls are the "X-Balls", they have also a lower price, in virtue of their possible lower quality, they are not allowed in unite tournaments.

BALL MARKERS

Used for marking the position of the ball on the green, ball markers are needed for picking up the golf ball. By using a marker, the ball can be cleaned or removed from the puttline of another player. These markings can have different designs and colours, the shape should be practical, for example they are armed with magnets or clips, which can be attached on the golf glove, or the golfers clothes.

DIVOT TOOL

A golf ball can leave a hole at the impact after a pitch, to mend this hole, every golfer should have a divot tool in their golf bag.

TEE

The tee is a little piece of plastic, rubber or wood, on which the golf ball is placed for the drive. To play the perfect shot a tee is useful to increase the position of the ball.

CLOTHES

In golf, the proper clothes have a high significance - for example, the correct short length, and the wearing of polo-shirts are required in the etiquette of golfing, however the dress code can be various for every golf course.

RULE BOOK

For golfers with tournament ambition it is useful to carry a rule book with them, for having the opportunity to access it in any situation.
