olf has been played on the Gowf Field of Loudon at the the Loudon Gowf Club since the 16th century, when it was the private course for the Loudon Castle's Campbell family; as for the Gowf thing, that's not a typo but the old Scottish word for golf. Many believe that in the more than 400 years the golf course has been gowfed upon it has never been plowed. Many credit this fact with being the reason why Loudoun's golf course is often ranked among the best of the Scottish inland gowf courses.

    I grew up on this golf course!
    my dad, JACK MARTIN was sec, captain, president.
    My brother Ian, who is a PGA pro, was Junior and senior CLIB CHAMP, I was JUNIOR CLUB CHAMP.
    There is a chance I will be back there in 2016, with my entire family from Capetown RSA ..
    ALAISTER TODD beware!
    The course may be relatively short, but if you can play to your handicap on LOUDOUN GOWF CLUB, YOU CAN PLAY TO YOUR HANDICAP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!
