HISTORY OF GOLF
Golf started from a game played on the eastern shore of Scotland, in a zone near the imperial capital of Edinburgh. During the inception of golf, the players would endeavor to hit a rock over sand ridges and around tracks by making use of a bowed stick or club. In the fifteenth century, Scotland got ready to protect itself, once more, against the invasion of ‘Auld Enemy’. The country’s active quest for golf nonetheless, drove most of the people to disregard their military preparation and fortification, to such an extent that the Scottish parliament of King James II restricted the game in 1457.
In spite of that, most people snubbed the ban, it was not until 1502 that the game was given the imperial seal of Approval which made King James IV of Scotland (1473 – 1513) turned into the world’s first golfing ruler.
The prevalence of the game rapidly spread all through sixteenth century Europe on account of this imperial approval. King Charles I took the game to England and Mary, Queen of Scots made the game known with France when she was there to study; the term ‘caddie’ was coined from the name for her French military helpers, known as cadets.
One of the head golf courses of the day was at Leith, very close to Edinburgh which enabled the first universal golf match in 1682, when the Duke of York and George Patterson who were representing Scotland, beat two English aristocrats.
The game of golf formally turned into a game when the Gentlemen Golfers of Leith framed the first club in 1744 and set up a yearly competition with tableware prizes. The rules for this game for this new competition were drafted by Duncan Forbes.
The primary reference to golf at its presently seen was the historic home town of St Andrews, in 1552. It was not until 1754 anyway that the St Andrews Society of Golfers was founded to compete in its own yearly competition by making use of Leith’s guidelines.
