And the reasons are clear in Americas Linksland: A Century of Long Island Golf, by William Quirin. In size, Long Island is small; it measures a mere 1,200 square miles. In terms of golf history, however, its huge. The first famous golf course in this country, The National Golf Links of America, is located there. Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, the site for the first playing of the U.S. Open, is located there. The site for the 2002 U.S. Open, Bethpage State Parks Black Course, is located there. And the history goes on an on. Carefully researched and beautifully written, Americas Linksland is a heart-felt tribute to one of golfs most historic places. Vintage photos of golf in the early days, and spectacular color photography by L.C. Lambrecht of some of Long Islands best courses, add even more to its appeal.
