Media Reviews
...the most splendidly written, edited and illustrated book that has yet come my way. Henry Longhurst, The Sunday Times I can only react with wonder and admiration at this gigantic work... the words and pictures complement each other to the point where the description of Kilarney is so vivid that the reading almost brings a hint of peat smoke to the nostrils. Peter Dobereiner, The Observer ...a book you would love to give to your oldest and dearest golfing friend and one which you yourself would like to recieve as a present... It succeeds brilliantly and the result of the combined efforts of all concerned is a book which far exceeds anything of the kind which has ever been attempted before and which therefore is a golf collector's dream. Tom Scott, Golf Illustrated
