For all you golf enthusiasts out there, a beautifully crafted themed chess set design based around one of the most popular games ever - available in both plain and hand painted options.
A widely played game now maybe, but how did it all start? There are numerous therories. Some believe that the actual origins of the great game of golf date as far back as Roman times in the game paganica.But probably the most widely accepted belief is that the modern game as we might recognise it today originated in St. Andrews, Scotland with shepherds trying to hit balls into rabbit holes! This site is now of course the location of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, founded in 1754 and widely recognised as the birthplace of golf.
Did you know... the longest golf course in the world is located in the Nullabor Plain, Australia? Stretching a massive 848 miles (1,365 km) it could take you as long as a week to complete the 18-hole course! Starting at Ceduna on the coast and straddling the two states of South Australia and Western Australia, the idea is that players drive some 100km between holes. Wombats, kangaroos crows and dingoes also feature in this golfing wildlife safari!
