The ancient game of Mahjongg is experiencing a rebirth, and Old Palm Golf Club is in the heart of it. A group recently met in the ladies lounge for Mahjongg Monday to play the popular rummy-like game that uses tiles instead of cards. The competition was fierce but friendly and everyone had a great time. Mahjongg, or “Maajh,” as it is often called, originated in China supposedly around the time of Confucius in 500 B.C. When it was finally introduced into the United States in the 1920s, Mahjongg became an instant sensation. It’s still incredibly popular, and whether you win or lose, it’s always a great way to pass the time with friends. More Mahjongg gatherings are in the works, and we encourage the ladies of Old Palm to drop by and try their hand at it.
