Cairo Minerals » Products » Silica Sand For Golf Course

A golf course consists of a series of holes, each consisting of a teeing ground, fairway, rough and other hazards, and a green with a flagstick (pin) and cup, all designed for the game of golf. A standard round of golf consists of playing 18 holes, thus most golf courses have this number of holes.] Some, however, only have nine holes, and the course is played twice per round (2×9=18), while others have 27 or 36 holes and choose two groups, of nine holes at a time, for novelty and maintenance reasons. Additionally, par-3 courses also exist, consisting of nine or 18 holes, all of which are a par 3 (strokes for a scratch golfer). Many older golf courses, often coastal, are golf links, of a different style to others. For non-municipal courses, there is usually a golf club based at each course, and may include a pro shop.
