Best Answer

The first rules of Golf were a code of 13 rules written in 1744 by the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers.

In 1754 the Society of St. Andrews Golfers (who would later become known as the R&A) also adopted this set of rules. As golf continued to grow, in 1888 the, now named, Royal & Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrews drew up a new code of rules. By the next year the R&A became generally accepted as golf's ruling body.

Now the R&A and USGA govern the rules of golf for the world and meet regularly to discuss and coordinate new rules and rule changes.
