Let’s start the article off with a few fascinating facts about golf. While most ball games are played in standardized areas, golf is played in varied terrain on different courses. A standard Golf course has 18 holes, while recreational Golf courses are comparatively smaller and have 9 holes. A Golf game is played either for the lowest number of strokes called stroke play or the lowest score on individual holes called match play.
Though the game’s origin is unclear, the modern golf game originated in the 15th Century in Scotland. Historians trace golf back to Paganica, played by the Romans using a bent stick and a stuffed leather ball. However, according to a painting entitled “The Autumn Banquet” in 1368, members of the Chinese court are observed swinging a ball using a bent golf stick. In 1457, James 11 of Scotland banned the game naming it unwelcoming and a diversion to learning archery. The ban was lifted later by the then-serving king of Scotland in 1502. He became a great golfer himself, recording the first golf clubs between 1503 and 1504.
