Sometimes, a hole's direction may bend twice; this is called a "double dogleg".A regular golf course consists of 18 holes, but nine-hole courses are common and can be played twice through for a full round of 18 holes.The typical amount of time required for pace of play for a 9-hole round is two hours and four hours for an 18-hole round.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).A "round" typically consists of 18 holes that are played in the order determined by the course layout.
A tee is a small peg that can be used to elevate the ball slightly above the ground up to a few centimetres high.
The game is thought to have been introduced into Europe during the Middle Ages.
Another early game that resembled modern golf was known as cambuca in England and chambot in France.
This is commonly called a "dogleg", in reference to a dog's knee.
The hole is called a "dogleg left" if the hole angles leftwards and "dogleg right" if it bends right.
One theory asserts that paganica spread throughout Europe as the Romans conquered most of the continent, during the first century BC, and eventually evolved into the modern game.
