Scotland is widely promoted as the 'Home of Golf' and along with whisky and the long list of Scottish inventions and discoveries; golf is widely seen as being a key national cultural icon throughout the world. It is frequently used to market the country to potential visitors.

Golf in Scotland was first recorded in the 15th century, and the modern game of golf was first developed and established in the country. The game plays a key role in the national sporting consciousness.

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, known as theR&A, is the world governing body for the game (except in the United States and Mexico). The Scottish Ladies’ Golfing Association was founded in 1904 and the Scottish Golf Union (SGU) in 1920. They merged in 2015 into a new organization, Scottish Golf.

Scotland has 550 courses, which are liberally divided, among its ten regions. The highest concentrations are around Glasgow (94 courses) and Edinburgh (67 courses), since these two cities and their environs account for the bulk of the population. The other districts still average about 40 courses each.
