It is believed that golf originated in Scotland. As early as the 1400s,pebbles were knocked into rabbit holes using a stick or club. In 1744,the first set of golfing rules and regulations was created in Edinburgh. In the nearby town of St.Andrews, the Society of St. Andrews Golfers was formed, which later became known as the Roval and Ancient golf Club of St. Andrews. Today, St.Andrews Links is one of the most famous courses in the world.
