The stereotypical hobby of businessmen everywhere, golf dates way, way back to 15th-century Scotland. Actually, it seems to have been based on sports that go all the way back to Roman times (or, alternately, medieval China or ancient Persia. A lot of people lay claim to this sport). In fact, the game has been deemed a distraction since its earliest days. British King James II banned golf in 1457 because he wanted his people to focus on archery instead. Golf remains a welcome distraction for many around the world...but it's not a cheap one! You have to find a good course and pay the fees to play there, plus buy and maintain a set of clubs. None of that is true here though! These online games require no particular location, no equipment, and they're all totally free! So you can practice your aim and hand-eye coordination without paying a cent. Play in silly or serious championships, 18 holes or less, in locations all over the place. Or just practice certain parts of the game. There are miniature golf challenges in this category as well!
