|Golf is a club-and-ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few
strokes as possible.
The modern game of golf originated in 15th century Scotland. The 18-hole round was created at the Old Course at St
Andrews in 1764. Golf's first major, and the world's oldest tournament in existence, is The Open Championship, also known
as the British Open, which was first played in 1860 in Ayrshire, Scotland. Golfers seem to be a shy bunch ! Hardly any old
postcards around of golfers themselves - most cards are either rather boring views of golf courses or are "comic" cards.
You can see our collection of comic golf postcards here. (Some appear on this page too !)
|In conjunction with Zazzle, we have produced an extensive range of gifts, using images from these old
