    from Wikipedia :

    It has been hypothesised that golf is actually an acronym for gentlemen only; ladies forbidden, but this is believed to be an urban legend.

    however, there is no real definition for the term "GOLF"
    so this is all historians have to go on
    it fits the Scot's quite well though

    Just because I didn't care to? Or maybe I was hiding something? :sneaky:

    I don't remember exactly what I read. Something about the word being taken from a word like "kolf" or something.

    The list seemed like it could be full of those bogus e-mail list "factoids".
