Synopsis: Bernard Darwin is one of the most revered golf writers of all time. This early collection of his best essays from the London Times paints a unique historical picture of golf as it was exploding onto the sporting scene around the world. Golf From the Times is Darwin's rarest book and one of the most sought-after golf titles in today's growing rare book market. This authentic reprint allows you to possess a true golf treasure.
In a highly entertaining look at golf just before the Golden Age, Darwin profiles the leading players; reviews the intricacies of golf instruction; examines great matches; thoughtfully analyzes the finer points of course design and architecture; reviews some of the game's legendary layouts, such as Hoylake, Westward Ho!, Royal St. Georges, and St. Andrews; and addresses many issues critical to the game after the turn of the century.
From the Publisher: This book is a volume in Sports Media Group’s Rare Book Collection. As the great writer Herbert Warren Wind said, "No other game has acquired a literature that compares to golf." Collecting this series or reprint editions of golf’s most important and rare books will enhance your understanding of the game while building a library of golf’s most treasured volumes.
