Description: "Golf in this country was born (in New York), it grew up here, and 100 years later it continues to be the center of the golfing world. It has more history and more great courses per square mile than any other place in the world. It is quite simply 'golf heaven'". From the foreword by Gene Sarazen, PGA Champion

One of America's oldest regional golf associations, the MGA began with 26 member clubs at Delmonicos Restaurant in New York City. One hundred years later, the MGA has grown into a group of over 385 clubs in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Each year many of golfs most prestigious events are held at MGA clubs such as Shinnecock, Baltrusol, and Ridgewood. Golf Courses of the MGA features these clubs and many others through beautiful full color photographs that capture the majesty of these historic locales.

To accompany these photographs, Dr. William Quirin painstakingly compiles comprehensive profiles on over 150 private and public golf facilities as well as complete data on every MGA member club. He also highlights many of the legendary players who helped craft the MGA's history over the past 100 years, including Walter Travis, Gene Sarazen, Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, and others.

Quirin carefully traces the MGA's history and retells the stories that have become imbedded in American golf lore. Within this book, discover where the Nassau bet originated, how the golf tee was born, and where the term Mulligan was first used. Also included is a section on golf club architecture and a special records section that lists the MGA's 100 years of champions, award winners, and leaders -- a real who's who of American golf.
