At the time this book was written, man-made inland golf courses were looked upon skeptically by purists who believed golf should only be played on natural courses, situated next to the ocean and without trees. Ray, a British and American Open champion, appealed to the reader to accept the new, inland courses as valid tests of a golfer's abilities. Murdoch 624; D&M 31260; D&J R3280.
