Golf, the sport of the old and wealthy who can spend hours on the green hills of a course.
Many people who have never tried golf don’t think they would like it. This is because the people most commonly seen playing it aren’t the most interesting of individuals. However, those who have played it know that this is not the case. Join us for Golf Month to see how much fun this sport can offer!
Although the modern game of golf was invented in 15th century Scotland, its roots can be traced back as far back as the ancient Roman game of paganica. Participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed-leather ball. Some historians believe that paganica spread across Europe after the Romans conquered the majority of the continent nearly 2,000 years ago and then evolved into the modern game.
Others believe that chuiwan, a Chinese game played in the eighth to the 14th centuries, is the father of modern golf. The “Autumn Banquet” scroll from the Ming Dynasty dates back to 1368. It shows a Chinese Imperial court member swinging what appears like a golf club at the small ball in an attempt to sink it into a hole. This would support this version of history.
