Golf balls were originally made out of wood, so they could not go as far as the golf balls we use today.  The golf balls golfers use now are made with sap that comes from trees in Malaysia, and they can travel much further.    Many golf clubs were also made of wood.  The wood was usually a very hard wood like persimmon.  Sometimes there would be a metal plate or screws attached.  In the late 1970’s, metal clubs began to appear for the drivers, fairway woods and utility woods.

Why do golf balls have dimples?  Golf balls have anywhere between 330 to 500 dimples.  The dimples are put in the golf balls to make them go further.  Players noticed that balls worked better if they were older & scuffed up.  That’s how they got the idea of putting dimples in when they made them.
