Golfimbul

Revision as of 18:33, 9 July 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Golfimbul was an Orc-chieftain of Mount Gram, who led a band of his Orcs in an invasion of the Shire. He was met, and defeated, at the Battle of Greenfields by Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took. According to legend (no doubt apocryphal), the events of that battle, coupled with Golfimbul's name, gave rise to the game of golf.
