  1. the rough.
  2. the green.
  3. the bunker.
  4. the weeds.
What else do players want to avoid along the fairway and around the green?
  • Answers may vary, but should include at least one of these: the sand trap (or bunker), the water hazard, the trees, the parking lot.

What does "Fore!" mean, and why do players shout it out?
  • Answers may vary but should include this idea: The term is a short form of the word "before", which is a synonym of "ahead". So, fore literally means, "look out ahead". Golfers shout this if they make a bad shot so as to warn other golfers that a ball might be coming their way.
