Golf is a precision and accuracy sport which is played by striking a ball using clubs into a series of holes on a golf course in as few strokes as possible. The modern game of golf was originated in the 15th century in Scotland, but the sport’s ancient origin is unclear and much debated. However, some research shows that a similar game named "colf" or "kolven" was practiced beforehand in the Netherlands and was arrived on the British Isles in the 15th century. The first rules of the game were compiled in March 1744 for "The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers." The world’s first golf tournament in existence and the golf’s first major "The Open Championship" was first held in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland. The first women’s competitions were established at the end of the 19th century and the first golf course was constructed in 1864 in England.
