The 18th century saw the golfers of Edinburgh and St Andrew's lay down the first rules of the game as it is played today. From the legends of Willie Park, Tom Morris and the pioneers of the first Open Championship via the golden years of the sporting Edwardian era and the inter-war years, Peter Allis traces the development of golf to the present day. The self-control, sportsmanship and good humour remain an integral part of the enjoyment of golf for players and spectators alike. These virtues are captured in this illustrated history of golf.
