Excerpt from Golf Greens and Green-Keeping

Montrose, Peterhead, Nairn, North Berwick, and all along the Forth, Sandwich, Bembridge, Aldeburgh, Westward ho, Aberdovey, Harlech, Hoylake, and plenty more. It is no use naming them all; but at all, SO far as I know, that have the real links characteristics, there is evidence that the sea and a river have been at work to gether to produce them. Some years ago, as I say, we used to think that we could not play golf on ground Of any other kind, and this al though the golf club of Blackheath is the oldest establishment of its kind known to history, and although one of the Perth clubs dates back to 1824: The Perth ground, however, formed by the silting of the great river, remote though it is from the sea, has a measure Of likeness with the real links soil. We seem to see a formation Of rather a like kind in the two Richmond greens. As for Blackheath, that was accepted frankly as a substitute, the best that could be Obtained, so far from the sea, for the real thing.
