Welcome to the timeline section of the Golf
Course. Like always,we strive to provide material
about golf that is both fun and educational. In
this particular section, we decided to take some
time to look at the history of golf through a
timeline. I would like to note that the material
in this section has come from iGolf.
Why look at the history of golf? Well, there
are a few reasons. The first is that the history
of the game is quite interesting and fascinating.
Not good enough for you? Well, to understand the
game, you must understand what it has gone
through to get to the game we now know and love.
Did you know that they banned golf in certain
parts of the world? Well, in Scotland and other
parts of the world, golfing was banned because it
was taking men and their focus away for the army
and the country using it on a "silly
game" of golf! Fascinating, huh?
Well, to your left, you will see links to the
different pages of the timeline section. So if
you see something of interest, please check it
out. If you would like to read the whole thing,
it is designed to be read in chronological order,
so start by entering on the page named, 1353-1687. Enjoy!
In every section, we have a link back to our
Teacher's Corner, because we hope that this
section and this site will be used in the
classroom. If you are a teacher and would like to
find out about other teachers that are using this
site in the classroom or even to find out how to
use the internet in the classroom, please stop by
... it will be worth it!
