About this Item

54 pages, illustrated with four photographs of "Old Tom" Morris, decorative cloth. Author was the founder and Captain of the Cambridge University Golf Club and a personal friend of Old Tom. Brevity is common in these early golf volumes and this little volume is no exception. It does however begin with a good history of the game in chapter one and follows, quite uncommonly, with a chapter on the golf couse itself. Two chapters of brief instruction and advice to beginners is followed by a lengthy chapter on the Rules of Golf of 1888. The 17 divisions with 45 rules of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club are itemized, followed by a section on Rules for Medal Play. What is most interesting and unique to my understanding about this book is that it continues by listing the ten LOCAL RULES FOR ST. ANDREWS LINKS (Eg. players with caddies may pass players carrying their own clubs) as well as the Local Rules of the Cambridge University Golf Club to suit play over Coldham Links. Brown offset from pastedowns to facing page, otherwise a nice clean copy with no marring of cover illustration which includes an image of Old Tom Morris at the top of his backswing. Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000824
