To play, each player has its own set of golf sticks, which will use depending on their level of play and field requirement.
In 1744 the first association of players in Scotland was founded, and in 1745, also in the UK, the first regulation course was created. The first golf associations were the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (1744) and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (1754).
It is believed that the modern game of golf was originated in Scotland in the fifteenth century. This sport was part of the Olympic program twice: in the Paris Games 1900 and for the last time in St. Louis 1904, where only men’s competitions and the United States and Canada were made were the only participants.
