The Open - Golf's Oldest Major, by Donald  SteelThe Open - Golf's Oldest Major
Donald Steel / Rizolli International
Foreword by Arnold Palmer

Published to coincide with the celebration of the 150th Open Championship, which will be staged this year at St Andrews from July 15-18, The Open - Golf’s Oldest Major is a feast of the finest links golf this country has to offer as it captures the history and unique experience of playing each of the fourteen legendary links courses along the British coastline on which the Open – golf’s most coveted prize – has been played.

The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, in association with Getty Images, presents an astonishing photographic celebration of a tournament that has hosted every icon of the sport. Bringing together classic images of unforgettable moments in the history of the Open, with vintage pictures from the archives and also brand new photographs by David Cannon – a regular contributor to Gi – this extravagantly illustrated book captures the glory and the excitement of the Open and the unparalleled beauty of the golf courses themselves.

The publishers, Rizzoli, should also be commended for commissioning noted architect Donald Steel – who has worked on all of the Open venues – for providing the text, describing each of the fourteen venues both through the eyes of a golf course designer while also capturing the atmosphere of the day.
