It is a game in which a stopped ball is hit with a golf club in a stadium with multiple holes and put into the hole, and the person with fewer strokes to enter the hole wins the game. The game is played by hitting the ball to the club according to the rules from the first hole to the 18th hole, and the person who hits the ball less often becomes the winner, and the 18th hole game is called the first round game. The walking distance is about 6km, and the time required is 3 hours and 30 minutes to 4 hours.
The origin of golf is that similar games to ice hockey in the Netherlands have been changed to golf after crossing to Scotland, that shepherds’ brushing stones with sticks have developed into golf, and that when the Roman Empire conquered Scotland, soldiers have remained in Scotland to play golf.
The start of current golf games originated in Scotland in the mid-15th century. In 1575, the Scottish Parliament even issued a golf ban for neglecting archery training for national defense because it was so absorbed in golf, but it gradually flourished that the Queen and nobles also enjoyed golf with interest. Then in 1754, 22 aristocrats gathered to form Saint Andrews Golf Club, and in 1834, William IV named St. Andrews Golf Club Royal and Ancent Golf Club, which integrated golf clubs across the UK. For the first time here, 13 golf rules were codified.
For the first time in 1860, the British Open Championship was held on the Prest Week course, and golf was prevalent only in England from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. Since then, it has been distributed to the United States and other European countries, Japan, and Korea, reaching today.
In particular, in the case of the U.S., Rayde, a native of Scotland, first created the St. Andrews Golf Club in New York in 1888, and then the American Golf Association was established in 1894, producing excellent players overwhelming Britain in the 1930s.
