Beginnings

Before the game called Paganica became known as golf, Roman shepherds played it as earlya s A.D. 1100. Where the game went from there is a long-standing, often heated debate among the Scots and the Dutch, who claim that early Dutch paintings show versions of golf played on ice. Rumor has it that the tradition of the 19th hole may have started in Holland as early as 1353, with a cross-country version of golf whose objective was to strike the doors of selected buildings with a wooden ball, with the winning team often being awarded a barrel of beer. Once beer got involved, the Romans, French, Belgians, Germans, and Chinese also began playing games similar to golf, but it was the Scots who perfected and promoted golf around the world. In 1744, the Honourable Company of Gentlemen Golfers in Edinburgh, Scotland, wrote "The Original Rules of Golf." The first golf course was Saint Andrews in the Kingdom of Fife overlooking the eastern shores of Scotland. In 1834 King William IV named Saint Andrews "Royal and Ancient," and thereafter Saint Andrews declared itself "The Home of Golf" and became the standard by which other golf courses were measured. Most golfers dream about playing on the old course at Saint Andrews.
