previous owners inscription

'Golf is a Great Mystery. Like some capricious goddess, it bestows its favours with what would appear an almost fatheaded lack of method and descrimination. Mysterious, but there it is. Ferdinand Dibble should have been a competent golfer - but he was a goof. That he loved Barbara Medway was beyond a doubt; but he hadn't the nerve to ask her to marry him. Every time he felt he had mustered up enough pep to propose, he took ten on a bogey three. And then self-confidence left him. How does he achieve his object? Many other great golfing problems are solved by the Oldest Member. His pertinacity in these matters makes him a plus man.
A real Wodehouse book of humore and golf.'
Wodehouse was a golfer himself, with a handicap reportedly never below the mid-teens. He played golf around the world and was a member of The Addington in England, Great Neck on Long Island in New York and Le Touquet in France.
Some of the finest writing about the sport, 'Golf is the infallible test. The man who can go into a patch of rough alone, with the knowledge that only God is watching him, and play his ball where it lies, is the man who will serve you faithfully and well.'
