History of Golf

Golf's origins are lost in history, but in its present form it is generally agreed to have been played in Scotland near St Andrews in the late 1400s.    Golf as we know it was first recorded in Scotland in the region around Edinburgh in the 15th Century.     In the subsequent 500 years, the game has advanced from one played with simple hand made clubs and leather balls stuffed with feathers to the game we know today, based on clubs designed by computer using advanced materials such as titanium and zirconium.

Actually hitting the golf ball towards the hole remains a dark art and it is as much a mystery now as it was in the 1400s!
