When Macdonald returned to the United States in 1874, it was to a country without a single golf course and without a single soul with whom he could share his exuberant attachment to the game. In 1892 he laid out the nine-hole Chicago Golf Club in Belmont, expanding it to 18 holes the following year, making it the first 18-hole course in the US.
This book fills a substantial hole in the Library collection. We are also missing Golf - Scotland's Game by David Hamilton. While published in 1998, this book is virtually unobtainable. If any of you has a copy in search a home I promise to look after it very well.
