Newsday sports columnist and longtime golf writer Mark Herrmann highlighted Images of America: Long Island Golf by Golf On Long Island's Phil Carlucci today in his weekly golf column. In his piece, Herrmann describes the work that went into the project and details some of the notable photos that stand out among the hundreds that were considered for the book.
"The result is an eclectic mix of 210 black-and-white pictures: Frances Griscom, wearing a long-sleeve blouse, ankle-length skirt and flower bedecked hat, holding a fairway wood in front of the Shinnecock Hills clubhouse during the 1900 U.S. Women's Amateur (which she won); the present bridge on No. 1 at Spring Lake's Sandpiper course in Middle Island; the sign asking golfers "Place green fees in envelope" at the nine-hole Sandy Pond layout in Riverhead." -- Newsday, Mark Herrmann, 7/29/2015
