Golf History

               Golf History Film Clips

George Duncan and Abe Mitchell at the Columbia Country Club (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1921)

"Now our golfing cousins from the land of the Thistle and Rose are sending another pair, who might well be christened the New Mandarins of Golf. One is is George Duncan of Scotland. The other is Abe Mitchell of England. And in addition to giving battle in our in our Open Championship at Columbia, Washington, D.C., they will display their wares in exhibition matches before 250,000 of our golfing citizens in another one of those extended tours that bring in a lot of kale and almost as many blisters."


The Evolution of Golf Clothes (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1922)

Oddly, this essay has more to do with the evolution of golf from a shepherd's pastime to the sport of kings, however there are some references made to the evolution of golf clothing:

"Royalty did, however, dress up the game. It gave us the brilliant garments that golf captains wear in Britain. When I first went abroad I thought that I had never seen more splendid creatures. And the modern golf costume is a thing of mode and cut..."


The Second Test of a Golf Champ (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1922)

A few words concerning the difficulty that golf champs (and a few others) face when it comes to defending their titles:

"The most difficult titles to defend will undoubtedly be golf. Just a year ago Chick Evans (1890 1979), Alexa Stirling (dates?), Ted Ray (1877 1943), and Jock Hutchinson (1884 - 1977) held the four main golf titles of the United States. Today not one of these survives with his title intact."


The One Essential Thing in Golf (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1918)

Throughout the fall of 1918, American golf enthusiast H.B. Martin (Harry Brownlow Martin, 1873 - 1965), who was not one to dally on the links when there are hard questions to be asked, approached the champions of the game with one query in mind:

"What is the ONE essential thing in golf?"

As you will read for yourself, he came away with many different responses.


Tailored Golf Fashions (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1922)

With the 1922 American economy as strong as it was, questions regarding what to wear on the links were seen as important queries and were not easily tossed aside. The following article illustrate the best golf jackets offered by the master-tailors at Cohen-Rissman, Fashion Park and The House of Kuppenheimer.


Ladies' Golf Attire by Burberrys (Vanity Fair Magazine, 1922)

A Burberry's tweed, self-belted golf suit for the fashionable woman of 1922.
