This title reveals the history of golf, from its invention in Scotland and patronage by Stuart monarchs, through its rising popularity in Victorian and Edwardian England, to the development of famous golf clubs, open championships and international competitions, with the battle between British and Americans for golfing supremacy in the twentieth century. We see the evolution of the golf ball and club from its early feather and wooden versions to the hi-tech golf equipment of today.
