Photographs by Anthony Edgeworth
Foreword by Jack Nicklaus
The American Midwest, with its rich history of golf clubs, classic golf courses, and epic battles on the fairways, is the subject of the fourth book in Anthony Edgeworth and John de St. Jorre’s series of legendary golf clubs on each side of the Atlantic Ocean. Twelve of the Midwest’s oldest and most respected clubs are lavishly and intimately profiled in photographs and words in this 416-page book, published in 2013.
“For many readers, the collaborative effort of the authors will provide a fascinating stroll down the fairways and hallways of some of middle America’s finest and iconic clubs. For me, it is looking up an old friend.”
Jack Nicklaus, who wrote the Foreword to the book and is a lifelong member of Scioto Country Club, Colombus, Ohio, one of the featured clubs
“This book is about golf clubs, and not simply golf courses. Its entrancements don’t end on the 18th green of famous names like Interlachen, outside Minneapolis, or Chicago’s Old Elm, or such hatcheries of sublime talent as Kansas City Country Club, where a towheaded named Tom Watson first picked up sticks, or Scioto whose fairways helped hone the game of the young Jack Nicklaus. These are places, each with its own gestalt, and Edgeworth and de St. Jorre give them to us holistically, and with a real grasp of what clubs are and how they work. This book is absolutely splendid and absolutely special.”
