Just in time for Father’s day…
Phil Carlucci, the man behind GolfOnLongIsland, has put together a book of photos. It features a few hundred images about the game we love – in the place we love. The book is put out by Arcadia Publishing and part of their Images of America series.
Here’s a quote from Phil:
The book contains more than 200 photos of public courses, private clubs, long-gone layouts, tournament play and local golf figures dating back to the 1890s at Shinnecock Hills through the present day, with looks along the way at courses like the original Lido Club and Montauk Downs, the paved-over Milburn and Meadow Brook clubs, and relative newcomers like Great Rock and Willow Creek. Images were collected from local clubs, golf associations, libraries, historical societies, municipalities and personal archives.
