My first time on a golf course was spending an afternoon watching friends hit golf balls. I was appointed as the golf cart driver while they were playing. It seems that beer and golf go well together, since I was not drinking, I was selected as the driver. They all wore golf shoes.
Each golfer had their own equipment (golf bag) to carry their clubs, extra golf balls, gloves, and tees. Before starting their round of golf, they went to the driving range to practice with various golf clubs and a putter. It was a fun experience. I was hooked that day and have enjoyed playing golf ever since.

Golf, the game, seems to have originated sometime in the mid-eighteenth century when the first known rules of golf were written by gentlemen (golfers) of Leith. The honorable Edinburgh golfers are now based at Royal St. Andrews in Scotland. It is definitely true that the game of golf, as we know it, came from Scotland.
The Scottish gentlemen were playing golf in its primitive design– hitting the ball from starting hole to finishing hole in the fewest number of strokes possible. The golfers made clubs usually fashioned by attaching some type of stone to a stick and balls were leather-covered feathers.
The earliest reference to golf appears to have started in the reign of King James. It seems he complained about his archers playing golf. His men were missing their practice, so he banned the game of golf. Missing work to play a round of golf is still very common today.
