According to sports historians, the standard of 18-hole golf courses was established as a design choice by the first modern golf course rather than being influenced by interesting myths, as some may suggest.

The game of golf originated in Scotland during the 15th century. The first course with 18 holes was built at St. Andrews in 1764. The game was played differently as a result of this change. In 1834, King William IV granted the club a name change. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews is the club’s current name, and it has hosted the Open Championship on 30 occasions. The upcoming 2022 tournament will mark the 30th time it will be held at this prestigious venue.
