Writing About Travel

Although invented in Scotland in the 1400's, the popularity of golf was hindered by the need for close-cropped grass.

As the lawnmower wasn't invented until 1831 and only really practical once the machine-tool industry could cut steel gears in the 1880's, the playing of golf finally made it to America in 1888, when St. Andrews Golf Club of Yonkers was formed.

Golf Links (pardon the pun)

Make sure you have a Federation Card or document specifying your handicap. Many golf clubs in Europe will ask to see your handicap.

Golf Online:
The latest golf news, stats, travel guides, golf equipment test results, and personalised instruction. When you can't make it to the course, this is the next best thing to being there.

Masters Golf:
The first Tournament was held on March 22nd, 1934, and since 1940, the Masters was scheduled each year during the first full week in April. The Augusta National Golf Club is located on the corner of Washington and Berckmans Roads.

PGA Tour:
In 1895, 10 professional golfers and one amateur played in the first U.S. Open in Newport, R.I. Shortly thereafter, tournaments began to pop up across the country. In 2006, the PGA Tour boasted 48 official events offering more than $250 million in prize money.

Saint Andrews:
America's oldest golf club (1888) and founding member of the USGA, Saint Andrew's is one of golf's venerated historical venues. Only 20 minutes drive from New York City, the membership and their guests enjoy the game in a spectacular setting and play one of the area's best-conditioned and exciting layouts - a challenging par-71 golf course, re-designed by Jack Nicklaus in 1983.
