Golf was introduced to Vietnam in the 1920s by King Bao Dai. At that time, golf was the king’s luxury sport that few Vietnamese knew. It wasn’t until the 1990s that this subject really became really popular. However, being famous doesn’t mean being “popular”. Since its inception in Vietnam up to now, golf has always been a class sport for the wealthy elite.
Not only Vietnam but in many other countries, people still call golf by names such as “noble hobby” or “sport of the rich”.
So how was golf born? Why did this sport become so popular in the elite world? Surely many people will raise such questions about this increasingly popular luxury hobby.
According to most researchers, golf was born around the 15th century in Scotland. During the first few centuries, whether it was a member of the royal family or an ordinary peasant, it was free to play this game. Poor Scottish people play golf on public grounds with homemade equipment. At that time, golf was a rather messy pastime and often accompanied by drinking.
