Canadian Golfer magazine

... to the golfing section of our sports and games list. Many items are now illustrated so that you can see what our copy looks like; you might find that a title you thought you owned is not in your collection, or, what might have seemed an unfamiliar title might, indeed, be one you already possess. And if there's one we haven't pictured but which you'd like to see, just ask and we'll be glad to send you a scan.

All are in their original bindings unless otherwise stated; dust jackets, if present, are described separately.

To see an individual item, click on its description below, or browse through them by visiting the Sports Image Gallery

References are to The Game of Golf and The Printed Word: 1566-1985 by Richard E. Donovan and Joseph S.F. Murdoch. We have identified each title printed prior to 1986 in one of four ways:

  • "D/M #00000": for items cited exactly.
  • "D/M #00000-later printing": later printings mentioned in the entry.
  • "title in D/M": in cases where title is cited, but our edition or printing is not specifically described.
  • "not in D/M": for those with no reference at all.

The books are organized into broad categories: some authors (contributors, etc.) appear in more than one, so check the general author index if you are seeking works by a particular author. Or use your browser's "Find" feature to search for a specific title or its keyword(s).

The books are divided into the following categories:
