Golf's origins are unclear, but it arose in Europe and gained popularity worldwide during the twentieth century. It is played by striking a small ball with a club, with the intention of landing the ball in or near a hole located some distance away.

Golf courses are often well-manicured, rolling grassy hills. They may have other features, such as a pond or lake. These are known as water traps.

Today, golf is often seen as a status symbol. The wealthy join country clubs to play the slow-moving, relaxing sport. Tournaments are also viewed on television.

Famous golfers include Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Palmer.

Did you know? Contrary to popular belief, the term "golf" is not an acronym for "gentlemen only, ladies forbidden." The word "golf" is likely derived from the Dutch word for club.

Miniature golf is another variation of the game. Rather than a wide-open course, a mini-golf course consists of smaller holes with many obstacles.

Courses are often themed - safari, medieval castles, or abandoned mines, for instance - and may feature Rube Goldberg devices that move the ball from one area to another.
