A painting dated "15th to early 16th century" in the Shanghai Museum depicts Chinese ladies playing what looks exactly like our modern game of golf. There is even a caddy in the painting and the clubs are very close to present day clubs. This raises the possibility of Europe "borrowing" the sport from the Chinese.)--68.7.170.27 05:13, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Golf was banned in Albany, NY in 1659[edit]

I have been looking for a credible source for this without much success. http://home.eznet.net/~dminor/NYNY1650.html , published by an archivist and curator of a museum in the area indicates that it was Kolven, not Golf that was banned, which is consistent with the Dutch settlement of the area. Does anyone have any further information? Thanks. WhaleyTim (talk) 09:27, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
