This vintage book is a fascinating chronicle of the changes that took place in the forty years that the author had been playing golf on St. Andrews Links. One of the oldest courses in the world, St. Andrews links is widely considered to be the “home of golf”. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in the history of this most venerable of golfing locations and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of vintage sporting literature. Contents include: “Links”, “Balls and Clubs”, “Medals”, “Players”, “Professionals and Caddies”, “Incidents in Golf”, and “Merits of the Game”. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of golf. First published in 1887.
