Description

This book contains over 400 fascinating and witty entries written by members in their Golf Club's suggestion books over the past century. These suggestions - and replies - provide an entertaining reflection on social change and show how golfer's priorities have altered over the years. The price and quality of a glass of port, ensuring that the brake meets the 9.30 am train, and the smartness of the caddies' shoes were all matters of importance in the first part of the century. Today's golfers are more concerned with handicaps, competitions and winter rules!show more
