It’s not clear of the origins of golf and is still being debated and researched. Still it’s a general acceptance that modern day golf began in Scotland around the Middle Ages. The game remained popularity only in Scotland until around the 19th century. It then started to gain notoriety as it began to spread throughout the rest of the United Kingdom. From there it spread in the United States of America.
The game has developed from there into a science to include a set of stringent rules and a landscape filled with pit falls at every turn. Sand traps or silica sand bunker, ponds, hills, even level turf, and of course the rough, all design to exhilarate the senses.
Golf has become synonymous with high profile players such as High ranking military personal, politicians, business persons, and a variety of super star entertainers. However golf has long been opening itself up to the general public where profession and beginners alike can enjoy the game.
In summary, it’s a great outdoor sport that’s easy going, a non-contact sport that can be played by any age group, if it’s your cup of tea.
