Offered here is a truly special book - a signed 1928 Limited First Edition (#212 of 260) of Scotland's Gift: Golf by Charles Blair Macdonald. Of course, nobody accepted that gift of golf and fostered it in America like C.B. MacDonald, who is widely recognized as the Father of American Golf Course Architecture. 

The book covers the spread of golf (prominently featuring himself) in the United States from its beginnings in the early 1890s to 1927, when there were some 4,000 courses in the country. It devotes several chapters to four of his courses, and gives his design philosophy.

Simply put, this is one of the most important golf books ever written, and it contains an exceptional autograph of C.B. Macdonald. This book is in Very Good condition.
