Signed by A.W. Tillinghast, First Edition, 'Cobble Valley Golf Yarns and Other Sketches" was written in 1915 and was published by Philadelphia Printing. As Tillinghast describes in the introduction to Cobble Valley Yarns: “Somewhere, nestled among the hills of Everywhere, is Homesburg, and there, too, is the golf course of Cobble Valley. The Links differ from others, just as they all do, but, after all, the people there are very like those of every other section. In the stories contained in this volume the author has attempted an analysis of human nature.” First Edition. Very good condition. Albert Warren (A.W.) Tillinghast was born in north Philadelphia in 1874. As one of the golden age of golf architecture’s prime figures, his golf course designs are among the best in the word: San Francisco Golf Club, Bethpage, Baltusrol, Winged Foot, Baltimore, Somerset Hills and Quaker Ridge. According to a synopsis by Daniel Wexler in The Book of Golfers, Tillinghast was poorly educated and ran a street gang, dropped out of school and skipped college. Despite this, Tillinghast also made a significant contribution to the golfer’s library with his fictional writing.
