Color lithograph. 35.5x50.3 cm (14x19¾") in frame (not glazed): 60.3x77 cm (23¾x30¼").

Signed by Aldin in the lower left and with the small embossed stamp of the Fine Art Trade Guild. One of a series of six prints of famous British courses by Aldin. Aldin (1870-1935) was a prolific painter,  perhaps better known for his sensitive depictions of his dogs, horses, and fox-hunting scenes. Aldin was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists.  Although the color lithographs are not numbered, only a limited number were made, and a complete set is difficult to assemble. "Probably the most significant golf course scenes to be published in color are the six Cecil Aldin lithographs from the 1920s." -Olman's Golf Antiques, p.138
