Golf Sport in the United States

Golf is a cross-country game that originated in Scotland, but has become widely popular in the United States. It involves striking a small ball with various clubs from a series of starting points (teeing grounds) into a series of holes on a course. The player who completes the course with the fewest strokes wins.

Golf as an organized game in the United States dates back to 1888, when the St. Andrew's Golf Club was founded in Yonkers, New York, by John Reid, a Scot who is regarded as "the father of American golf". Since then, golf has grown to become one of the most popular sports in the country, with more than 25 million Americans playing golf on a golf course in 2022, or 8% of the total population. Additionally, 34.2 million people played golf both on and off course, and 15.5 million people participated in off-course golf activities like driving ranges and golf simulators in 2019.
