Golf Club History Books

Golf Club History Books

Golf Club history books cover some of the most famous golf clubs, worldwide, from the early days and beginnings of the sport to today. Included are also rare and unusual golf books and publications about clubs, such as the 1895 publication, "Banff Golf Club Bazaar". This rare booklet was published to commemorate the bazaar held to raise funds for the new club-house and course alterations.

There are many other, old and rare golf books in this section about golf club history, such as the 1912, 'Dalbeattie: the Book of the Dalbeattie Golf Club' along with items of golf memorabilia with very personal stories of golf history. A copy of 'Pine Valley Golf Club: a Chronicle' is actually Sir Peter Allen's copy, signed and dedicated to him by the author, Warner Shelley. Pine Valley Golf Club is the course, where Sir Peter played his first game in 1933. There are some golfing gems in this section with fascinating histories to tell.
