Golf in America: The First 100 Years
By George Peper. Like many other sports, golf is a game that loves to look back on itself, and this oversized volume, originally published in the late 1980s, does the retrospection splendidly. Touching on all aspects of the game – its history, its stars, its appeal, its courses, its equipment and even some basic instruction – it both introduces and commemorates a sport with deep roots.
The text is complemented by historical photographs, plans and current photographs of the greatest courses and designers in the country.
