Specialists in Golf Books

We specialize in rare, collectible and antiquarian golf books, emphasizing quality over quantity, and are one of the leading specialists in our field. Our specialization allows attention to detail and a focus that less specialized dealers cannot afford. We hope you find our site enlightening and stimulating.

Golf is by its very nature an obsessive game. Once bitten by the golf bug, there is usually no limit to what a golfer will do to get out and play. Golfers are also by their nature collectors. Who among us can’t claim even a modest collection of score cards from courses we have played or ball markers or balls? A natural extension of this is collecting golf books. For the golfer in winter climates, a golfing library has the added attraction of holding you over until the weather again permits you to be out playing again.

We have a large selection of golf books with a lot of golf club histories, as well as golf architecture books. In addition, we have difficult to find antiquarian books and signed, limited edition golf books that are rare. Please take a look at our inventory.

“I have a good dinner in the evening in my room, prefaced by two good, stiff highballs, the first taken in a tub of hot water; the finest relaxing combination I know; and then a few cigarettes and a bit of conversation, and bed at 9 o’clock”

Bobby Jones from "Down the Fairway"

“All swing thoughts decay, like radium. What burned up the course on Wednesday has turned to lead on Sunday. A swing thought is the golfer’s equivalent of the rock climber’s Don’t Look Down.”

John Updike from "Golf Dreams"

“Golf…is the infallible test. The man who can go into a patch of rough alone, with the knowledge that only God is watching him, and play his ball where it lies, is the man who will serve you faithfully and well.”

P.G. Wodehouse
