History

Golfimbul led a band of his Orcs in an invasion of the Shire in Third Age 2747. He was met by Bandobras Took in the Northfarthing of the Shire, and defeated in the Battle of Greenfields. During the battle, Bandobras charged at Golfimbul and knocked off his head with a club. Golfimbul's head flew through the air for 100 yards and went down a rabbit hole. It is said that this is how the game of golf was invented.

Etymology

"fimbul" is Old Norse for "great".
