"Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an even smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose". Winston Churchill.
History of Golf
Golf as we know it today originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club.
Early forms of Golf traced back to the Roman game of "paganica", in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball.
In 1457, the Scottish Parliament passed several acts banning the practice of the game, along with football, because the two sports were interfering with archery practice, which was necessary for national defence. The first act was passed in 1457 by James II, King of Scotland, and it was reaffirmed in 1471 and 1491.
Golf was played at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 for the first time in 112 years.
