Best Answer

A hazzard in Golf refers to any man made, or natural structure specifically positioned in a way that may stress the golfer's game, and cause them to add strokes. Some of the most common hazards are sand traps, and ponds. Sand is much more difficult to hit from so golfers tend to play their balls as far away from these as possible. It is impossible to hit a ball from the water, therefore when a golfer does, he or she is required to take a drop ball which results in an added stroke. Both of these are hazzards to the golfer because the pose the threat of adding strokes, and hurting the golfers score.
