*"Kolf is played by hitting a ball with a stick - a cross between a golf club and a hockey stick. The object is to hit the poles on the kolf pitch. Kolf used to be played on ice as well as on dry land. For centuries, ever since the Middle Ages, it was the most popular sport in the Netherlands: much like football today. Now it is only played in West Friesland."
