On a tranquil morning, the distinctive metallic ting as the driver
club swings and cleanly hits the dimpled hard white ball,
further down the course hearing a distant shout of “fore left”
 as another golfer miss-hits a shot and warningly calls.

The long curving fairway to the 13th hole is lined by conifer trees
 and flowering uncut grass, and has a mark of 3 par,
strong westerly wind blows the ball off course into the rough,
incurring a double bogey as the ball travels too far.

Fluttering red and white flagsticks flutter on the immaculate
greens of Saint Andrew’s Old Course, golf’s historical home,
the large crowds of enthusiastic spectators at the annual Open
Championship show how appreciation of the sport has grown.

Pulling the golf cart containing an assortment of clubs, wearing
spiked shoes and a hat to block the brightness of the sun,
after playing an enjoyable 18 holes with friends on a blustery
autumnal day, adding up the scorecards to see who won.

Practise, concentration and precision are required to begin to
 master the game, and the overlap position of the hand,
an unfortunate shot rolls into a bunker and requires the sand
wedge which raises a conspicuous cloud of golden sand.

A coastal line course provides challenging undulations with
 flowering yellow gorse and spectacular sea views,
the winding procession of holes and fairways are highlighted 
 with sun and dappled shade as transient clouds pass through.

After deliberation, a light chip shot is required to gently roll the
 ball across the level pristine manicured grass of the green,
walking out of the clubhouse with three other players early on a
summer morn reveals an enticing tranquil golfing scene.

After playing a congenial 18 holes with friends on a blustery autumn
day, in good humour totalling the scorecards to see who won,
enjoying the physical and mental challenge, and satisfaction of a well
well played game despite unpredictable rain, wind and sun.
