365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 335: Golfimbul

Golfimbul was Orc, the leader of the Goblins of Mount Gram, who led a raid into western Eriador (TA 2747) and was defeated in the Battle of the Greenfields by Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took, who knocked off his head with a club and sent it soaring into the air, where it eventually landed in a rabbit hole. Hobbit folklore states that it was this incident which inspired the name and game of golf.
