Synopsis

Golf: Those Were the Days by Captain William Featherstone-Dawes

In the good old days of golf one could thrash a gutta percha with a mashie niblick over the old course at St Andrews, have a damned fine lunch in the clubhouse and still have change from a guinea. Those Were The Days: Golf is a photo book full of weird and wonderful photos from the early days of golf, accompanied by a sparkling commentary, delivered in a Pathe news style that wouldn't go amiss delivered by Mr Cholmondley-Warner (of Harry Enfield fame). Unfeasibly large plus fours, society ladies out for a bash and weird golf inventions all make their way into a book that fits into the same series format as When I Were A Lad...Find even more humourous nostalgia in: When I Were a Lad...(9781907554001), When I Where a School Lad...(9781907554148), When I Were a Nipper...(9781907554360) and Those Were the Days: Football (9781843400001).
