Product Details

Although this is not a particularly old book (1992) it makes a great addition for any golf book collection exploring the colourful history of caddies (men, boys and some girls) who earned their meagre living on the golf courses of the past carrying clubs for the great and mighty, the chronic incompetent, and all sorts of players in between. Among them there were some extraordinary characters, particularly those from north of the border, i.e. Scotland. A very entertaining book full of photographs, cartoons and anecdotes that will you find very amusing. There are 128 pages.

David Stirk’s previous book, The Compleat Golfer, was an international best seller and he also wrote Golf in the Making.
The book is in good condition having a dark green hardback cover, all pages intact and legible. There is a very slight ‘yellowing’ at the edges of the pages. The dust cover is in good condition having no tears. The spine section of the cover is white so this may be the result of fading due to sunlight during storage on a book shelf. The original price has been removed from the dust jacket by a previous owner.
The book was first published in 1989 by H.F. & G. Witherby Ltd, London. This copy is the second impression printed in April 1992.
The book measures 8.5” down x 6” across. 21cm x 15cm
