The Olympics Of Golf: India and The Game

I recently came across an article that was discussing the idea of golf being brought back into the Olympic Games – which it last appeared in back in 1904. In my opinion I think this is a fantastic idea to bring back as golf is a sport that people from all over the world can enjoy playing for themselves and also for others to watch.

There are many countries around the world who have their own golf courses and who produce world class players every year – Spain is one country that comes to mind when thinking of this with players such as Sergio Garcia who has won many European Tour titles in his career so far. But in my opinion I think that bringing it back into the Olympics will give countries such as India a big boost in getting more people involved with the game which will improve the future for golf in these countries.

India does not currently have a huge presence within international golf however I feel that bringing it back into the Olympics would most certainly boost

I am a PGA Professional in India, I have been playing golf for twenty years now. I have worked for many great golf clubs in India. Now I would like to share my experiences with you!

Golf has always been an exclusive sport, one that requires lots of practice, skill, and money. It is not a sport played by many people here in India. Only the upper class has access to golf courses and golf clubs. Also, it is not a sport that is very popular with women here in India.

India has so much history in the sport of golf. Golf was first played here in Calcutta during the British Raj. In fact the oldest golf club outside Great Britain was established right here in India!

I hope you will enjoy this blog!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Steve Binder, and I am an avid golfer. I have played the game for many years, and now I want to share with you my observations, thoughts, and some of my own experiences. I am also going to help you learn more about the game of golf in general.

I will be writing articles on a regular basis, so please bookmark this page and check back often! I am going to start with a few of the basics (as a refresher), and then we will get into more advanced topics as time goes on.

The Basics

The History Of The Game Of Golf

The first mention of golf in history was in 1457 when King James II of Scotland banned it because he thought it was interfering with the practice of archery. At that time, golf was played over a stretch of land between St. Andrews and Edinburgh, Scotland. It was also during this time that the first recorded game of golf was played at St. Andrews Links when Sir William Montgomerie beat Robbie Lockhart in a match which included 22 holes.

For the next decade or so, there were many games played at St. Andrews Links, but it was not

Golf is a game played in all over the world, and it is a game that has been in the Summer Olympics on and off for many years. The game of golf is not one that is known for being played in India. The game of golf did not have an Olympic presence until 1904, when it was first included in the games held at the Glen Echo Country Club in St. Louis, Missouri. After that time the game had disappeared from the international stage for many years. It returned to the Olympics in 2016 at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, but this time only as a team event.

The South African team took home the gold medal during that year’s games. This was followed by Canada earning silver, and China claimed bronze. However, this time around at Tokyo 2020 there will be much more golf competition than ever before. In addition to two days of stroke play competition between teams representing each country, there will also be 72 hole individual competitions. Thirty-two men and women will compete against each other during these round to determine who will get to claim a gold medal at those particular events.

It is definitely exciting that there are new events coming into play during this year’s Summer Olympics games, because it gives more

Golf is an Olympic sport in 2016 for the first time since 1904. (It was a medal sport in 1900 too, but only for men from Britain, the U.S., France, Belgium and Italy.) There are 60 golfers from 30 countries — two men and two women per country — in the Olympics.

In 2016 there are no Indian golfers competing in Rio. But that doesn’t mean there is no connection between golf and India. In fact, it’s possible that golf began in modern-day India more than 1,000 years ago.

There are a number of games that combine elements of golf and cricket played throughout Asia, but perhaps the most interesting version is called chhappa or chaupar. It has been played for centuries by royalty, used to settle disputes and even used as a gambling game by commoners. And its origins are believed to date back to ancient India during the Gupta Dynasty from 319 to 590 CE. (A Gupta coin with images of a golf bag and clubs was minted around 450 CE.) It is hard not to imagine that chhappa may have inspired what we know as modern golf today. (The Romans also played a game with a stick and ball called

Golf is a family of ball games played on a course, where the object is to hit a ball into holes on the course using different types of clubs. The hole is a cup that sits in the ground and is 4.25 inches (10.8 centimeters) in diameter and 4 to 5 inches (10 to 13 centimeters) deep, depending on whether it is an amateur or professional course. There are 18 holes on a golf course, with each hole being assigned a par score from 3 to 5, depending on how difficult it is. A round of golf consists of playing each of the 18 holes in succession, for a total of 72 strokes in the case of par 72 courses (the most common). Golfers can play alone or in groups consisting of as few as two people and as many as four. The more players there are, however, the longer it takes to play one round. Each player’s scores are kept track of throughout a round, but only the lowest score matters at the end.

The history of golf goes back hundreds if not thousands of years. Some believe that modern golf evolved from games played by Roman soldiers using sticks to whack stones into small holes dug into the ground. This would explain why
