Published by the Augusta National Golf Club, 1962, First Edition. In very good condition.

44 pages. The book contains biographies and hand drawn sketches of early members of Augusta, including founding members. It includes portraits of Grantland Rice, George Herbert Walker, Louis Alphonse Berckmans, Charles H. Sabin, Robert P. Jones (Bobby's father) and more. The book was issued by Augusta National when they opened a Grill Room in 1962. As the book describes: In decorating this new facility it was deemed an appropriate opportunity to pay tribute to the memory of some of the deceased founders and early members who were prominently identified with the Club during its formative years. Accordingly, six artists were commissioned to do twenty-one drawings of early members, and these portraits now hang in the Club's Grill Room. Donovan & Jerris A13500.

Rare.
