Although golf-like games were played in other parts of Europe as early as the 1200's, it is thought that Scotland is where the modern game of golf as we know it was invented. The first written mention in Scotland was in 1457 prohibiting the play of golf since it distracted from practicing archery, a skill used for military purporses. But the real spread of golf happened in the late 1800's when train service from London to Edinburgh was much improved. Golf spread across the British Isles and then further to the entire British Empire. Even with the expansion of golf courses worldwide, it is still a rite of passage for many golfers (professional and amateurs alike) to head to the wind swept coastlines of Scotland to play on some of the most famous courses in the world. This illustrated map shows just a few of these top courses.

This map covers the Swiss half of Lake Geneva or Lac Lèman. It stretches from the city of Geneva in the west, with the Headquarters of the UN and Red Cross and the amazing Hadron Collider, buried underground at CERN. At the eastern end of the lake is Montreux with its music festival and statue of Freddie Mercury and the beautiful, lakeside Chateau de Chillon. In the centre of the lake is Lausanne, home to the Olympics and the Chateau de Vufflens. This clip is part of a much larger map of the whole of Switzerland and is a unique combination of painting and sculpture, with all the details hand carved from balsa wood and painted with acrylic.
