Golf is a game with a lot of different terms and expressions. If you are new to the game, you might be a little intimidated – and a little confused – by all of the various things you hear on the course. It can take a little bit of time to get comfortable with the meaning of everything you will hear while playing golf, so the glossary below has been designed to give you a head start. While this is far from a complete golf dictionary, it does cover some of the basic terms you are likely to encounter.
