History

Golf’s ancient origins are unclear and much vague. While the modern game of golf originated in 15th-century Scotland. Some historians named it the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball. The game is thought to have been introduced into Europe during the Middle Ages. Another early game that resembled modern golf was known as cambuca in England and chatbot in France.

The modern game originated in Scotland, where the first written record of golf is James II's banning of the game in 1457. Golf is documented as being played on Musselburgh Links, East Lothian, Scotland as early as 2 March 1672, which is certified as the oldest golf course in the world by Guinness World Records. Two Scotsmen from Dunfermline, John Reid, and Robert Lockhart, first demonstrated golf in the U.S. by setting up a hole in an orchard in 1888
