Golf in Life
History of golfThe origins of golf are unclear and much debated. However it is clearly one of a family of similar and possibly
related club and ball games that were recorded across medieval Europe, and many of the unique elements of golf
evolved in the port towns around the Firth of Forth in eastern Scotland from the medieval period onwards. Golf
spread from Scotland into the rest of the United Kingdom and then to the British Empire and the United States of
