  • wikipedia to the rescue. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golf#Etymology The word golf was first mentioned in writing in 1457 on a Scottish statute on forbidden games as gouf, possibly derived from the Scottish word goulf (variously spelled) meaning "to strike or cuff". This word may, in turn, be related to the Dutch word kolf, meaning "bat," or "club," and the Dutch sport of the same name. There is a persistent urban legend claiming that the term derives from an acronym "Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden". This is almost certainly false as acronyms being used as words is a fairly modern phenomenon, making the expression more likely to be a backronym [20].

  • I have no idea, I'm just curious why this is in the 'Religion' section. I was under the impression that it golf has nothing to do with religion. Am I wrong? Like I said-just curious. God Bless, <:))))<><
