A stroke of genius. Though the Dutch had a version of the stick and ball game as early as the 1200s, it was the Scots that fine-tuned the sport into the version recognized today. This fact is a national point of pride for highlanders. It wasn’t always played on an 18-hole course though; St. Andrews Links is one of Scotland’s “ancient” courses that features just 11 holes. By the 19th Century, the game had spread across the United Kingdom and was exported throughout the British Empire, arriving on the shores of the U.S. as well. It is estimated there are approximately 15,000 golf courses in the nation today.
