No certain etymology for the golf word “Fore!” has ever been agreed. The Shorter Oxford Dictionary records its first use in 1878 as a warning cry to people in front of a golf stroke and, like most people, believes it is an abbreviation of the word ‘before’. There is an earlier reference in 1857 in a glossary of golfing terms. Its origin appears to be bound up with that of the word Caddie.
Before!” (“Beware Before!”) was foreshortened to “Fore!” (rather than
“Ware!”) and, secondly, it must have been sufficiently well known to be used by golfers.
