Book Description

27 Mar 1997
Golf has been played in varying forms for over 500 years, yet it was only during Queen Victoria's reign that it evolved from Scottish pastime to a worldwide sport. This book seeks to capture the period and the decades immediately following, chronicling the the legendary players and famous courses. Tracing the development of the game from the mid-19th century up to the modern era, it details the exploits of "Old" Tom Morris, Harry Vardon, Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus. It reveals how the US came to dominate the game in the 50s and 60s and how golf survived in Britain between the wars.

Enjoyed this book by Dale Concannon very much. Recomended to me by a freind and was very pleased with what I had bought. Have bought this authors books before and have never been disappointed. That said, this one is really excellent as it outlines a fascinating period of golf history. Well done all concerned.

By A Customer
I really enjoyed leafing throught the pages of this really excellent golf book and looking at the wonderful old photos inside. Then after reading the captions to each one I found myself liking them even more. Why isn't every golf book like this? Like I said, terrific value...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top value golf book 4 May 1999
By A Customer
What a great golf book. Well done. I loved the many photographs and it also helped having them really well captioned. In many cases that little bit of extra info actually brought them alive. I enjoyed reading the first section on collecting old golf photos and especially liked the Wide World of Golf chapter. Great writing, wonderful photos and a low price. What more could a golfer want?
