The modern game of golf has its origins in Scotland. The first mention of golf in Scotland dates from 1457. The world's oldest golf course has been verified as existing in 1672 (Musselburgh Links in Scotland). There are stories to the effect that Mary, Queen of Scots played there in 1567.
With Scotland becoming a tourist destination in the mid-19th century, interest increased in Scottish culture, including goft. Its popularity grew and quickly spread through the United Kingdom and then on to Europe and the United States. There was a golf craze beginning in the late 19th century.
During the Jazz Age of the roaring 20's, golf had been extremely fashionable: there were over 1,100 golf clubs affiliated with the U.S. Golf Association.
