Chuiwan - Ancient Golf

Chuiwan was a game in ancient China. Its rules resemble modern golf. The book Dongxuan lu of the Song Dynasty ( 800 years ago), describes how a southern Tang official teaches his daughter how to dig goals in the ground and drive a ball into them.The game became popular by the Song Dynasty. A Chinese scholar suggested the game was exported to Europe and then Scotland by Mongolian travellers in the late Middle Ages.

The rule for Chuiwan is remarkably similar to that of modern golf, in that players use a set of up to 10 clubs, balls are of difference sizes and made of wood, holes are spread on terrain of various difficulty, and marked by color flag; Tee off area are called Ji - which means base in Chinese; there's also strict etiquette and rule with regard to player honesty and cheating penalties.

For more coverage, please see Wikipedia and an article on Chuiwan.
