Details:
Whether you believe that the word "Golf" derives from "Gentlemen Only - Ladies Forbidden," or you simply believe that Scotsmen began playing the game at St. Andrews, you must admit that this sport has universal appeal. It not only generates billions of dollars in sales and contracts all along the course, the sport has evolved into a multi-billion dollar generating game itself. This year the GNOSO Golf Event will be held at the Lakewood Golf Club on the Westbank on General De Galle Drive. By the way we don't believe that first statement for a minute - the FIRST WOMAN recorded to have played Golf - was a St. Andrews regular, Mary Queen of Scots. Caution, Ladies, don't follow in her footsteps. She is reported to have "lost her head."

While we are on trivia - Why are golf courses laid out with 18 holes?  Why not 10?  Why not 20?

Well - STRICTLY RUMOR - but sounds reasonable....  It seems that during a discussion among the club's membership board at St. Andrews in 1858, a senior member pointed out that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch. By limiting himself to only one shot of Scotch per hole, the Scot figured a round of golf was finished when the Scotch ran out. Now you know.  (Well, maybe YOU do - me, I'm a bit in awe that anyone could finish off a fifth of Scotch during a round of golf....  But then, I am neither a golfer, nor a Scotsman, so I may well lack the fortitude for either.  Be assured, though, that IF there is any substance to that discussion, that Scotsman was either made of quite stern stuff, or bent the truth a wee bit, or maybe had just finished one of those 18-hole rounds.
