Golf as we know it originated from a game played on the eastern coast of Scotland in the Kingdom of Fife during the 15th century. Players would hit a pebble around a natural course of sand dunes, rabbit runs and tracks using a stick or primitive club, at least that’s what golfeurope.com says.
True or false, Kipp rather likes the idea of this more primitive version and wouldn’t mind seeing it done among Dubai’s sand dunes.
Interestingly, during the mid-15th century, when Scotland was preparing to defend itself against an English invasion. The people’s enthusiasm for golf and soccer led to the neglect of military training and caused the parliament to ban both sports in 1457. The ban was liftest in 1502 when King James IV (James I of England) himself took up the sport.
