The word 'golf' is derived from - "gentlemen only, ladies forbidden"

Specially Processed American Meat, shurely...?

Doesn't "golf" derive from the Dutch "kolf" meaning club? The Dutch and the Scots were trading buddies back in the day - it seems likely that the Scots adapted a Dutch hockey-style game with the addition of a hole as a target.

Likely to me, anyway!
