    The Difference Between a Par, a Birdie, and a Bogey

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Every golfer has her own style and skills. Par is a helpful tool that allows players to aim for realistic goals by providing an average number of strokes for each hole.

    Watch this video to learn about scoring in golf. A player meets par if she makes the ball into the hole within the number of strokes set forth by the course. If a player is one under par, she receives a birdie. If she is one over par, she receives a bogey.

    You can see how you stack up here at Chevy Chase Country Club! Call us at (847) 465-2304 to learn about our golf club, lessons, and tee times in Wheeling.

    A Guide to Basic Golf Terminology

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Summer provides a great opportunity to get outside and have some fun! You can take advantage of this warm weather by spending time here at Chevy Chase Country Club. Our golf course offers an exciting and inviting space to enjoy the sunshine and make memories with friends. Make the most out of your time on the golf course by brushing up on some basic terminology:

    Backswing
    This term refers to the first part of a golf swing. Players tend to start with their clubs directly behind the ball before the backswing. Players then move the club away from the ball, stopping when their closed fists are near their shoulders. It is important to practice the backswing to gain more control.

    Caddie
    Many players enlist the help of caddies during their time on the golf course. Caddies are responsible for carrying and transporting clubs and staying on top of cleaning and other chores. Players may also ask their caddies for advice on which club to use for each shot.

    Grip
    Golf is a unique sport where players must rely on clubs to help them hit the ball. The right clubs make all the difference out on the golf course! A player’s grip refers to the hold he has on the golf club. It also refers to the top part of the club. Different grips offer different advantages.

    Par
    This term describes the expected number of strokes a player should have for each hole on the golf course. Players want to get the ball in the hole in as many shots as the par number or fewer. If you come across a par-3 hole, for example, your goal will be to get the ball in the hole in three shots or fewer.
