Here is a little golf history you might enjoy. Why do golf courses have 18 holes and not 20 or 10 or even a dozen?
During a discussion among the club’s membership board at St. Andrews in 1885, 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.
