Golf Terms for Golf Spouses

Anyone who is married, or about to get married, to a golf fanatic may well wonder why their wedding didn't actually take place on a public golf course. That's how absolutely devoted golfers are to their sport. For the spouses of serious golfers the game, and its accompanying vocabulary can be very confusing. But there's no reason to call off the wedding because you think you'll never understand the difference between a 7 iron and pitching wedge. Just memorize some the following key golf terms to help you fit in at any public or private course. Ace - The fabled hole in one. This is what happens when a golfer sinks the ball in the hole in a single shot.

  • Approach Shot - The shot when a golfer is attempting to get their ball on the green. Birdie - Sinking the ball in the hole in one shot under par.
  • Irons - Refers to the clubs that are used for relatively short shots with an iron or steel head. The basic equipment needed for a par 3 course is a 7 iron and putter.
  • Miniature Golf - This is golf for the less serious minded golfer, and his kids. A miniature golf course is all about putting the ball through a variety of silly obstacles.
  • Online Reservations - Before the internet, golfers would have to call in advance to reserve a tee time. These days most public courses have some sort of online reservation system. But golf is a game of tradition, so don't count on finding this everywhere.
  • Woods - Woods are clubs with a wooden head used for hitting the ball great distances. If you're shopping for basic golf equipment you'll need woods, irons and a putter.

    Chances are, there are a few golf courses in and around your community where you can perfect your putt. Public golf course grounds are open to the public, as opposed to private golf courses, where you need a membership to be allowed access. Anyone can play at a public golf course, but setting up tee times is usually recommended to secure a spot. Charges and greens fees vary. It depends on what time of day you play and whether you need a cart or not. Seasonal rates apply too. Most public golf courses feature 18 holes, although some feature nine holes. They also typically have driving ranges where golfers line up side by side to tee off onto a large open field, a great way to practice their swing. A wide-open grassy area showcases targets and yardage markers so you know just how far you hit the ball. Many local teams play tournaments and games at public golf courses on a regular basis. Sometimes, organizations and corporations hold team-building retreats at golf courses. People can rent a cart for easy jaunts between holes, or they can hire a caddy to transport their clubs. Many golf courses also offer putting greens for chipping and bunker practice, along with a clubhouse facility, restaurant, driving range, and pro shops. Typically, there's a golf pro on staff who offers lessons for those who want to learn the basics or just improve their technique. Golfing enthusiasts can learn more about a public golf course facility near them by hopping online, or asking friends for advice on the best places. If you're new to a town or city, seek out community resources like websites, libraries, and free community forums to learn where you can golf.
