April 08th, 2017 Scotland Golf Trips: Be a Part of Scotland’s Rich Golf History

,



It's that time of year again. The freshly-cut grass smell is back, golf greens are being aerated, and your clubs are ready to hit some golf balls. Not only is it that time of year at your local golf course, but it's also that time of year in Scotland.

If you've never played golf in Scotland, then you are surely missing out. Golf and Scotland go together like peanut butter and jelly. Scotland is home to the oldest golf courses in the world. It has a rich history that shouldn't be missed, especially if you're an avid golfer.

Scotland's rich golf history began in the 15th century when Scottish lads began playing on the now famous course known as St. Andrews golf course. However, the King of Scotland, James II, quickly banned the game because villagers weren't practicing their archery. People just couldn't stop playing the mentally stimulating game that was enjoyably difficult to master, and soon even the king got hooked. Ever since then, golf has been a rich sport in Scotland.
