Where Was The First U S Golf Course? This question is not so easy to answer. There are several areas in United States have an unofficial claim to having the first U.S. golf course. Can’t believe it? Let me show you.

For instance, some golf historians place the first golf course and club in the United States in South Carolina. There is also a reference to playing golf in the government records near Albany, New York in 1659. Both have valid arguments, it is only the definition of just swinging their golf clubs, or having a formal golf course built that may be in debate.

Another issue is: where was the first course one can carry their golf equipment and shot the ball to 18-hole in the U. S.? Officially, the first 18-hole golf course was constructed near Chicago in 1893. This was a very popular golf course to the residents of Chicago and those that lived close to the city.

Yet, history also shows that the first permanent club in North America was in Canada. Even if a golf course was well known, what course endured is also a valid factor when considering what golf course was worthwhile enough historically, to be counted as “the first golf course”.

By some counts, the United States now has as many golf courses as the rest of the world combined. This would include all the states, including the state of Hawaii.

As new earth moving technology persists, an increasing number of golf courses are being built in the United States. With so many to choose from, any golf course that can claim to have the coveted title of the first golf course in the U.S. certainly has a distinct advantage。
