Golfers do notnecessarilyhave to, but usually, people go from beginning to end, not the middle of the end to the middle, then skipping a few, and getting where you want to. It is easier to go in order, because if you go from hole 2 to 8, then 14, then go to 3, it takes a longtime to get from hole to hole.

It depends on the length of the hole, and the number of golfers in the tournament.
