A Global Partnership

Golf has come a long way since its origins on the windswept dunes of Scotland’s east coast some seven centuries ago. The game is believed to have first been played at St Andrews around 1400 AD, while The Old Course at Musselburgh Links, near Edinburgh, is widely accepted to be one of the oldest in the world. Mary, Queen of Scots, reputedly played the course in 1567, taking a somewhat different stance towards the game than her great-great grandfather, King James II, who banned golf in 1457 because the country’s young archers were practising their swing rather than their aim.
