Golf (from the English golf) is a men's Olympic sport in which individual participants or teams try to drive a small ball by hitting clubs into special holes. Importantly, the ball needs to be rolled into the hole in fewer strokes.
The exact date of the origin of golf is not known, but it is believed that it was invented by Scottish shepherds, who tried to roll stones into rabbit holes with their staves. While many historians disagree, it is believed that golf originated in the Roman Empire and was played with bent sticks and a ball stuffed with feathers. According to other theories, golf appeared in China during the reign of the Ming dynasty, as evidenced by a scroll depicting an emperor who is trying to drive the ball into the hole with something like a club. However, modern golf comes from Scotland. The first mention of the game is considered to be the decree of 1457 by King James II of Scotland banning golf, as it distracted archers from training. The rules and the system with 18 holes on the course were also invented there.
Golf in Turkey began to develop actively not so long ago - only at the end of the 20th century. However, during this short period of time, golf courses, recognized as some of the best in the world, golf clubs and even golf hotels were created in the country. As you know, the most famous golf courses in Turkey are located in Istanbul and Belek.
