1599 Four keen Scottish golfers are reprimanded by the Church for playing golf on the Sabbath, as recorded in the archives of the Perth Kirk Session:
"John Gardiner, James Bowman, Laurence Chalmers and Laurence Cuthbert confessed that they were playing the gowf on the North Inch at the time of the afternoon preaching on the Sabbath. The Session rebuked them and admonished them to resort to the hearing of the word dligently on the Sabbath in time coming, which they promised to do."
