We’ve previously written about Pine Valley Golf Club books. Consistently ranked as the #1 golf course in the world, this exclusive and isolated course in New Jersey is full of golfing lore. Items related to Pine Valley are quite collectable and prized, including golf books.
The triumverate of Pine Valley books: Pine Valley Golf Club: A Unique Haven of the Game, A Short History of Pine Valley and Pine Valley Golf Club: A Chronicle are the well known books published by the club.
We recently learned of a new book published about Pine Valley in 1946, authored by George Crump. Monument to Golf and was privately printed.
Perhaps it is indeed a stretch to call Monument to Golf a book, although it is listed in Donovan & Jerris (P12580) as such. A copy sold recently for $1,000 at auction. At eight pages total, that makes each page of this gem worth $125!
