National Golf Lovers Day

National Golf Lovers Day

National Golf Lovers Day celebrates the joy and pleasure of all those who love golf.

Although no one knows when the game of golf began, records indicate that similar games were played in China during the Song Dynasty period (940-1279 AD). Julius Caesar also played a game similar golf in 50 BC. It involved hitting a feather-stuffed club with a branch of a tree.

The eastern coast of Scotland is where the modern version of golf was invented. It’s near Edinburgh, the former capital of the Kingdom of Scotland. Instead of starting with a small, pockmarked ball the game began with players using a bent stick to hit pebbles across the sand dunes.

James II, King of Scots was disturbed by the fact that men in Scotland were spending more time playing football and golf than practicing their military skills. The Act of Parliament, which was passed by the King of Scots, banned golf and football.

The game was not approved by royalty until nearly 50 years later, when King James IV became first monarch to play golf. Soon after, King Charles I of Scotland and Mary Queen Of Scots brought the game of golf to England and to Europe through France.

The 17th century was the time that golf arrived in America. The first round of American golf was actually recorded in 1650 at Fort Orange in New York, near Albany. It wasn’t until then that it gained popularity. Golf became very popular in America in the 1920s. The love for the game has made it a major part of the American athletic scene.

There are many ideas and activities that can be done to celebrate National Golf Lovers Day. These ideas are worth looking at and you might want to implement them for National Golf Lovers Day.

Golf enthusiasts should definitely get on the green to play a round. You can play 9 holes in just a few hours or you can spend half a day at your favorite course for 18 holes. You can also take a road trip to Arizona and Florida if you don’t find a great place to play. These states are known for being some of the most popular places to play golf in the United States.

National Golf Lovers Day is a great excuse to visit Scotland, the birthplace of golf. Scotland offers more golf courses per capita than any other country, with more than 550.

The Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland is the oldest golf course. It is also known as The Old Lady, or the Grand Old Lady. It dates back to the beginning of the 15th century. It would be great to enjoy this one and the other 500+ Scottish golf courses as part of National Golf Lovers Day celebrations!

National Golf Lovers Day is a great time to get new gear for your golf game. For those who don’t play golf but are still in a relationship with someone who is, it’s the perfect opportunity to gift them some of their most desired gear. You can gift or get one of these to celebrate this special day.

Connect with others who love golf and are interested in improving their game. A local golf club has great perks that allow you to play more and connect with others. A membership to a golf club can help you get a handicap.

Many golf clubs offer many membership options. These include discounts for younger members, academy and starter memberships as well as social memberships. Country memberships are also available for those who live far from the course.

Many benefits come with joining a golf club, such as the freedom to access the course at any time, the possibility of organizing a game at a specific time, participating in competitions, and building golf friendships that will allow you to make an investment in your community.
