EtymologyEdit

The word is first known in English from the 15th century from Scots. Although the etymology is uncertain, the most likely origin is that it comes from the Middle Dutch colve, colf (club), ultimately from Proto-Germanic *kulbô (club), related to German Kolben (piston, rod), Swedish kolv (piston, rod), Old English clopp (rock; cliff).

PronunciationEdit

  • (UK) IPA(key): /ɡɒlf/
