Grass-covered fairway surrounded by plant growth whose distance the golfer covers by hitting a ball, despite the obstacles; in principle, each hole is played in an estimated number of strokes, its par.
par 3 hole
The player tries to reach the green on the tee-off stroke and then make two putts; par 3s are often the most dreaded by golfers.
par 4 hole
The player tries to reach the green on the second stroke and then make two putts; it is called a birdie when a hole is sunk in one stroke under par.
First stroke for a hole that is made from the teeing ground; the ball is usually placed on a tee.
