Golf Apparel and More from Scotland

Updated on November 30, 2014

Scotland the Home of Golf

As stated by Wikipedia!. Golf in Scotland was first recorded in the 15th century, and the modern game of golf was first developed and established in the country. The game plays a key role in the national sporting consciousness.

Although golf is often seen as an elitist sport elsewhere in the world, in the land of its birth it enjoys widespread appeal throughout the spectrum of society, in line with the country's egalitarian tradition. For example, the Old Course at St Andrew's and Musselburgh Links (My Home Town) are public courses, not to mention that Musselburgh Links is the oldest golf course in the world and where I spent many a day whacking the ball around.

Council-owned courses, with low fees and easy access, are common throughout the country wherever demography and geography allow. Therefore golf courses, whether public or private, are far more common in the Lowlands than in the Highlands and Islands.

So browse on for more information on Golf Apparel and Golf Accessories from Scotland.

Muirfield Ball Marker

What's the definition of the Golf Ball Marker? It's small, flat object used to mark the position of a golf ball when the ball is lifted on the putting green. The ball marker - which should be something about the size of a small coin - is place directly behind the golf ball before the ball is lifted. The ball is then replaced directly in front of the ball marker, on its original spot.

Small coins are probably the most popular object to use as a ball marker, although many golfers also use items specifically manufactured for this purpose and that might carry a golf company logo or the name of a favorite course.

      @Franksterk: I remember those days, although Mum and Dad never played golf, there was never a shortage of of golfers wanting a game. I do remember the caddy part as I always carried my own clubs but now it's golf carts which do that work for you, 2 years ago I participated in a golf charity match and that was the first time ever I have used a golf cart :-)

      Excellent lens. I used to caddy for my Dad and I loved it. When I was older I played with him and my Mom but alas golfing only once or twice a year doesn't a golfer make! Bear hugs, Frankster

      I used to play golf. I visited St. Andrews, Scotland, a number of years ago and walked on the course and visited the British Golf Museum - all very interesting. Blessed.

      @anonymous: Hi Tipi long time no chat, like the Taser huh, nice touch for all you ladies alone on the course :-)

      Hmmm, now I don't play golf but it does seem that your taser is an unusual part of the equipment. I'm wondering if there is a special pocket for it on the golf bag. I hadn't heard of the R&A before, guess that fives away that I'm an American. I also learned that Scotland is not only known as the home of excellent whiskey, but also of golf...all the way back to the 15th century, wowzers!

      Love the idea of the Taser on the golf course! I can see the golfers being chased by a mad Scotsman, or the last wolf in Scotland (the one they missed), or a wild Haggis maybe :) Great lens, enjoyed my read, blessed.
