Rangoon (Yangon): Story - TravelAdvisor
Yangon has a relatively brief past as an important town. Last dynasty was established in 1752 by Alaungpaya, the Emperor. Yangon was erected by Alaungpaya, after the Emperor conquered Lower Myanmar, in 1755. Prior to its construction, the country was the former site of Pongon, which means "dragon" in English.
That was when the British were moving into the town. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Shedagonagoda, a 2,500-year-old buddhistic sanctuary and a high point in Yangon, was the centre of many civic activity. It was the British who chose this town, then known as Rangoon, as their capitol and ended the rule of Mandalay as Myanmar's butcher.
By the turn of the century, after the complete UK invasion of Myanmar (Burma) in 1885, the city of Yangon (Rangoon) was already an important thriving trading centre with large and small UK trading companies such as Bombay Burma Co., Burma Oil Co., Steel Brothers, Rowe & Co.
Executive employee of those commercial organisations, officials of British regiments, ruling British trustees and businessmen chose to transfer golf to Yangon as their favorite sport, the play of the Golf. In 1904, the club was captained by Col. G. B. Crawley. It was in 1954 that the last UK club skipper, Mr. I.G. Clarke, the general director of William Jack, Hardware Co, appointed U Cho, the director of public instruction, who became Burma's first skipper.
