Golf

Golf is a sport that requires technical precision and an incredible concentration. It consists in introducing a specific ball in different holes distributed in the field, with the least number of strokes using a golf club. This club varies according to the degree of the club head and the shafts, which have different lengths. At most, athletes can carry a set of 14 clubs.

Some details

Lima 2019 has top-notch stages for this fantastic sport such as the Country Club de Villa, a facility that has hosted both national and international first-level events. At the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games, great Peruvian athletes such as Luis Fernando Barco, Felipe Strobach, Lucia Gutiérrez and Simone De Souza represented our country.

History

Golf originated in Scotland in the 15th century. However, it is known that a game similar to golf, where players used a stick and a leather ball but not holes, was played in the Netherlands at the end of the 13th century. But it was not until the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games that golf was included as one of the sports in this event, making its debut before returning to the Olympic program in Rio 2016 after a long absence of 112 years.
