Golf Quote of the week

I admire a lot of people, but in terms of sport I've always loved the mentality of Tiger Woods on a golf course. I always love his eyes when he's setting himself and focusing on his decision; he has a really strong, focused face and believes that he can make the shot.

Interesting Golf Facts

Some interesting Golf Facts

Golf is a centuries-old sport that’s enjoyed by millions of people throughout the world.

Golf Balls Were Originally Made of Wood. Some of the first golf balls were made entirely of hardwood, such as beech and box trees. These balls appeared during the 14th century and remained in use until the 17thcentury. Of course, a typical wooden golf ball would only last for a few games before it needed to be replaced.

Other Golf Balls Were Made of Feathers. An alternative type of golf ball, known as a feathery, also appeared around the era of the wooden ball. A feathery was basically a leather pouch filled with chicken or goose feathers (hence the name). Due to the extensive labour and materials required, a single feathery ball would often cost the modern-day equivalent of $10-$20 bucks.

Golf Was Played on The Moon. Golf is one of the two only sports to be played on the moon. On February 6, 1967 Alan Bartlett “Al” Shepard, Jr. performed a one-handed swing with a six-iron, sending the ball flying through the moon’s low-gravity atmosphere. And in case you were wondering, javelin is the other sport that was reportedly played on the moon.

Origins of New Zealand golf

New Zealand’s first recorded game of golf was in Dunedin in 1871. The Otago Golf Club is the world’s fourth-oldest outside the United Kingdom. Another club was set up in Christchurch in 1873. Two more clubs were set up in 1892, and the New Zealand Amateur Championship began in 1893. In 1899 the Golf Council was set up to represent clubs and players nationally.

The 20th century

The first Open Championship, for both professional and amateur golfers, was held in 1907. It was won by A. D. S. Duncan, New Zealand’s most prominent golfer of the era. Before the Second World War golf was mainly a game for the wealthy, and players dressed smartly on the course. In the 1960s there was a worldwide golfing boom, and player numbers rose rapidly.


Women played golf from its early days. A women’s golf club was set up in Otago in 1892, and the first Ladies Amateur Championship was held in 1893. By 1930 almost as many women as men played golf.

Golf courses

The Manawatu Golf Course opened in 1895 and is New Zealand’s oldest. Napier Golf Club opened the following year
