A medieval game that took over the modern world
To know the story of golf, let us turn back time and travel to an era when kings ruled lands and fought wars. In 15th Century Scotland, golf, as we know it, evolved from another sport in the Kingdom of Fife. This outdoor sport fundamentally differed from other stick and ball games in 2 ways – firstly it needed an uneven rugged terrain and secondly it required a well-formed hole. Golf demanded expensive equipment and plenty of leisure time and the Industrial Revolution served both. It became an opportune recreation for wealthy lords and moneyed factory bosses to network with each other while bragging about their fortunes. Soon enough the game took off and became an industry of its own, with hiring of greenskeepers and mass-manufacturing of dimpled balls. In 1774, the first golf society was established by the Company of Edinburgh Golfers which also published the first 13 rules of play. About a century later, the first modern tournament was played in the Scottish town of Prestwick in 1860. A year later, the Open Championship (British Open) was born and the sport welcomed amateurs.
Today, professional golf has garnered massive fan-following and media buzz from across the globe. This is probably thanks to the 4 major tournaments that have diligently thrown up exceptional talent onto the spotlight and given the world of sport some serious inspiration. From the legendary Jack Nicklaus who is regarded as the greatest golfer of all time, winning a total of 18 career major championships to the famed Tiger Woods who dominated the sport through the 2000s, Golf has given the world a distinguished collection of sporting gems. Traditionally in India, the sport was mostly regarded as an elitist recreation, with golf grounds reserved only for the rich & famous. Times have changed and now the middle class are making their presence felt on the greens. Today, India boasts of some of the finest golf courses in the region. From the historic Royal Calcutta Golf Club to the prestigious Delhi Golf Club in the Capital, to the magnificent Royal Springs Golf Club overlooking the Dal Lake in Srinagar, the sport has made its eminent presence in far-reaching corners of our country.
