Legendary Golf Links of Ireland

Legendary Golf Links of Ireland

Photographs by Anthony Edgeworth

This book completes the trilogy of legendary golf clubs in Britain, the United States of America, and Ireland. Published in time for the Ryder Cup, the first time that tournament was held in Ireland, the book embraces sixteen of the Emerald Isle’s grand and not-so-grand golf clubs that share the world’s finest and most intriguing links courses, and the unmatched camaraderie of the Irish golfing community.

“The greatest—the best—golf books flow out of their authors’ grasp of inclusiveness. It’s what we get out of Darwin, out of Herb Wind, out of Wodehouse: the whole deal. I look at these images, read the text, and there comes a sense of the entirety of the experience of Irish golf, wherever played… I have no hesitation in declaring this book to be Edgeworth’s and de St. Jorre’s noblest effort yet, worthy of comparison in all significant artistic qualities with Bernard Darwin’s and Harry Rountree’s Golf Courses of the British Isles, published almost a century ago, and equally entitled as that classic to space in any golf library that claims to be serious… Indispensable.”
Michael Thomas, Travel & Leisure Golf Magazine

“It is a magnificent book, with superb photographs and a wonderful narrative, which combine so well to capture the essence of playing golf in Ireland.”
Sir Michael Bonallack, former secretary and captain, the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews

“Photographer Anthony Edgeworth and writer John de St. Jorre have pulled off a great hat trick with their third and final golf book. Ireland has yet again provided wonderful writing and magnificent photographs and the authors have both done it proud.”
Ian Wooldridge, golf columnist, The Daily Mail, London
