One hundred years ago the popularity of golf in Ireland was growing to such an extent that, on average, a new course was being opened for play about every 6 weeks. The need for some form of regulatory body became obvious, and so the origins of the Golfing Union of Ireland were established. This book is not merely an account of the administration of the game, it is above all a history of the growth and development of golf in Ireland from its earliest days of established clubs to the present. Extensive appendices provide a permanent record of the awards won in the many championships and inter-club tournaments under the jurisdiction of the Union and of its provincial branches together with the achievements of those who represented Ireland at international level, or their province at tnterprovincial level. Also included is other comprehensive information essential to a full appreciation of the history of golf in Ireland.
