Newly evolving areas of emphasis in this classic, pioneering book were less frequent rolling, switching from heavy iron rollers to light wood rollers; maintenance of greens varying with the soil type; mowing of fairways preferred to the use of sheep; the need for rabbit control; and an appreciation of the greenkeepers contributions. It contains numerous early golfing photographs." p. 252

Beard Rarity Statement:Very rare
Beard Special Note:Identified by James B Beard in Turfgrass History and Literature: Lawns, Sports, and Golf (2014) as being old and rare based on his experience.
