In 1858, the Old Course at St. Andrews decreed that "one round of the Links or 18 holes is reckoned a match unless otherwise stipulated." The new rule encourages other clubs to convert to or build to 18 holes in length. Why St. Andrews members pick 18 holes is not known, but one local tale has it that it takes exactly 18 shots to polish off a fifth of Scotch. One shot per hole seems about right!
