'Golf is a funny game ...Many books have been written on the art of playing Golf, but few have attempted to give any record of the subtle humour which belongs to all sports of Scottish origin, and to Golf in particular.' So said the original blurb when first published in 1914.

Golf Stories is a collection of original short stories, jokes, anecdotes, sketches, dialogues and parodies, all illustrated with suitably baggy-trousered line drawings by E. W. Mitchell. It includes among many other items the maxims of Foozler Minimus, a golfing Roman legionary (Mens agitat molem: 'Some men get anyed with a molehill'), and 'The Rules - Revised', which states 'Casual water is any temporary accumulation of water - undiluted with whiskey'

Original decorative light gray-green cloth stamped in black. Front decoration bright. Spine light age-toning. Bindings tight and square. Text clean, even toning with occasional spotting. Moderate handling wear. Professionally recased with new endpages.

...<b>The Birth of Greatness. The Story of the Creation of the Honors Course  </b><br>, [Pete Dye]Patten, G. Z.
9 [Pete Dye]Patten, G. Z. "Bome" ...The Birth of Greatness. The Story of the Creation of the Honors Course

Signal Mountain, Tennessee: Patten Press, 1984 Limited Edition. First Edition, First Printing.
 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 Fully illustrated with photography.
 
Rated # 32 by Golf Digest. Considered radical in the early 1980s because of its acres of tall, native-grass rough, durable Zoysiagrass fairways and terrifying greens perched atop bulkheads of rock, today The Honors Course is considered a well-preserved example of Pete Dye's death-or-glory architecture.

Other than reducing the contours in a couple of greens (particularly the 18th) in the late 1990s, and adjusting the bunkering in 2008, Dye has left the course alone.

oblong, dark green cloth. Carefully handled, Text clean, Bindings firm. Minor bump upper outer corner.
