WALTER J. TRAVIS HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT GOLF—-

“Golf is a wonderful game—absolutely unique.  It develops the good qualities of a man’s nature and softens the poor ones.
As a disciplinarian and establisher of character, it is without a peer.
It cultivates patience and endurance under adversity and yet keeps constantly alive the fires of hope.  It is a leveler of ranks and classes:  rich and poor alike meet on common ground.  Skill at it cannot be purchased except by application, concentration, hard work, much travail of spirit and undying faith–all of which really represent a labor of love.
It has saved thousands of lives, and broadened, sweetened and enriched the minds and dispositions of many thousands more.    It has given birth to and firmly cemented friendships without number.
It is the best, as it is the fairest of all outdoor pastimes—and it may be played from cradle to the grave.  (The American Golfer, Feb. 1910)
