Although the origins of golf trace back to the 14th century, it was not until 1744 that the Company of Gentlemen Golfers, located in Scotland, established the first formal golf club and set of rules. In 1893, the Chicago Golf Club opened as the first 18-hole course in the United States. The Professional Golfers' Association of America (PGA) was founded in 1909, and professional golf has grown substantially since then.

Object of the Game

Limit the number of swings (“strokes”) per hole needed to hit a ball from the tee into the cup. This strategy continues throughout 18 holes of play.
