"..This is one of the granddaddy coffee table books of all coffee table books.." -- Poppers, Golf News April 1999
"..a stunning collection of photographs that captures the spirit of "gentleman's golf" in golf's birthland.." -- Golf Digest December 1999
Edgeworth belongs on any list of the top dozen or so photographers in the world. His books on the U.S. Marines and the British Guards units are lusted after by collectors and his work has appeared in most major magazines, including this one. His pictures resonate with a feeling for tradition and the deep appeal of the old, enduring things... And this book, with 258 Edgeworth photographs from the oldest and most durable golf venues in the world... could make a golfer out of Mark Twain. -- Geoffrey Norman, Editor at Large, Forbes FYI
This is one of the granddaddy coffee table books of all coffee table books with 258 spectacular photos. It is beautiful, oversized, 4-color, high quality with breathtaking views of some of the world's finest historic golf courses found in the birthplace of golf. Well worth the price; a book you'll cherish for life. -- Dan Poppers, GolfNews
This is the first book to capture pictorially what British Golf is all about. Imagine the visual equivalent of P.G. Wodehouse, Bernard Darwin and Herbert Warren Wind, and you will have some sense of the force and delight of Tony Edgeworth's photographs. -- Michael M. Thomas, Columinist, The New York Observer; and Travel & Leisure Golf; Contributing Editor, Golf Digest
