The term golf originated from the Netherlands. The Dutch word for club is “kolve” or “kolf”. The Dutch likely introduced the word to the Scots through trading during the 14th until the 17th centuries. Due to linguistic differences, the Scottish dialect modified the pronunciation and the terms became “gouff” and “goff”. In the 16th century, the term became, simply, golf.
