No. One theory is that the word "Golf" actually comes from the dutch word "kolf" meaning "club".

The idea that the game of golf is derived from "Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden" is an urban legend. The word "golf" first appeared in the 15th century. There are several theories as to where it came from, but no one ever suggested the acronym theory until the 20th century.
