Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Golf is a sport that originated on Earth several hundred years ago. In golf, the object of the game is to hit a ball using a club from the teeing area into a small hole located in an area known as a green in as few strokes as possible.

The game remained popular well into the 23rd and 24th centuries. The Klingons once challenged the crew of USS Enterprise to a game, much to James T. Kirk's puzzlement. (TOS novel: How Much for Just the Planet?) Former Starfleet Captain Ferris Kane enjoyed playing golf after retiring from Starfleet. (TNG novelization: Relics)

The Doctor took up the game as well during the voyage of the USS Voyager back to the Alpha Quadrant. The Doctor used the ship's holodecks to recreate a number of golf courses on Earth and on other planets. (VOY episodes: "Drive", "Inside Man")

Hurley sees that most of the survivors don't have anything to keep their minds occupied. So, after finding some golf clubs, he builds a 2-hole, three par golf course on the top of a hill near the caves. The course is located in a valley on the Mesa.

Appearances

  • The course is seen in use or mentioned on at least five occasions:
  • The first time the survivors played, Hurley created it, and used it for "the first and hopefully last Island Open". ("Solitary")
  • Hurley later mentions a second tournament ("playing for deodorant sticks"), but the course isn't seen. ("Special")
  • Hurley unsuccessfully attempts to make friends with Jin as he's hitting rocks at the course, saying that "urchins have more ping". ("...In Translation")

Symbolism

The golf tournament represented problems in Michael's parenting skills with Walt. When he heard about the tournament, Michael left Walt on his own in the caves, only with the sleeping Claire. He also later asked his son if he wanted a try, but Walt felt guilty that others were waiting to have a turn. When Hurley then told Michael it was his turn, instead of offering his try to Walt (which would be more expected), he accepted it himself leaving Walt to walk back to the beach alone.

Recurring Themes

When he creates the golf course in "Solitary", Hurley says "rich idiots fly to tropical islands all the time to whack balls around." In "The Economist", Sayid observes that he and wealthy Italian Mr Avellino are "paying quite a premium" to play golf on a private course in the Seychelles.
