benny4words commented on the word golf
indeed, the idea that golf is an acronym for 'gentlemen only, ladies forbidden'is a folk etymology. The most likley origin of the word is from the middle dutch verb, 'colf' meaning club. My neighbour told me golf was an acronym, and being a fan of Q.I. i wikied to see if he was right. :)
