First published in 1896, The Game of Golf came out just as the 'fickle game that must be wooed to be won' was gaining widespread popularity across the world. Written for golfers of every ability, this 'book of instruction' covers every aspect of the game from choosing clubs and balls, through the correct stance and swing, to the secrets of putting 'off the left leg', why the well-struck shot came to be called 'a screamer' and the merits, or otherwise, of allowing sheep to graze on a golf course.

A golfing manual which has never been surpassed, this historical document from the days of cleeks, mashies and 'tackety boots' is as readable today as when it first hit the shelves.

Includes the original Laws of Golf, Rules of Etiquette, How to Play, General Remarks on the Game, Laying Out and Keeping Golf-Links, and Competitions and Handicapping, plus a glossary of terms, diagrams and illustrations.
