History of Golf
The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland, where the first written record of golf is James II’s banning of the game in 1457 as an unwelcome distraction to learning archery. To many golfers, the Old Course at St Andrews, dating to before 1574, is considered sacred ground. Golf is documented as being played on Musselburgh Links in Lothian, Scotland, as early as March 2, 1672, which is certified as the oldest golf course in the world by Guinness World Records. The world's oldest golf tournament in existence, and golf's first major, is The Open Championship, first played on October 17, 1860, at Prestwick Golf Club, in Ayrshire, Scotland. Golf’s ancient roots are a little murkier. Some trace the sport back to the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball; chuiwan, a Chinese game played between the eighth and 14th centuries; or cambuca in England and chambot in France. Others believe golf descended from the Persian game, chaugan, or kolven, a game involving a ball and curved bats that was played annually in Loenen, Netherlands, beginning in 1297. The countries with most golf courses per capita include Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Canada, Wales, United States and Sweden. The first golf course in China opened in 1984, but by the end of 2009, there were roughly 600 in the country and expansion continues despite an official ban on new courses.
