enturies ago, golfing started to strengthen its ties with business world. At the beginning, of course, it was not a game of biz society, but it gained a business-wide popularity by the help of the situation created by Industrial Revolution.
At that time, a new group of people emerged, named middle-class, between upper and lower class society. Those people did belong neither noble community nor worker ensemble. However, they had time to spend for leisure activities, and budget to afford expensive services. Those were the people who created today’s golf, injected business spirit to the game, and wrote its dress code such as sportive biz.
