'General golf books' has a huge range of books from the classsic to rare and more esoteric titles. There are books on 'Ladies' Golf', many books on golf courses, such as '50 Miles of Golf round London' and 'Aspects of Golf Course Architecture, 1889-1926'. 'British Golf Links', edited by Horace Gordon Hutchinson is another classic on the subject of golf courses and also gives a vivid snapshot of the Late Victorian golf scene.
A raft of Darwin's classic golf books appears in this category, such as 'The Golf Courses of the British Isles' and 'Rubs of the Green'. There's many another great and significant golf classic here too, for example: 'Great Golfers: Their Methods at a Glance' by George William Beldam. Beldam was a professional photographer and the first one to properly capture sportsmen in action. Before he came onto the scene, 'real action golf shots' were posed.
