North Berwick, Scotland 
Golf is a science, the study of a lifetime,
in which you may exhaust yourself but never
your subject. It is a contest, a duel or a melee,
calling for skill, courage, strategy and self-
control. It is a test of temper, a trial of honour,
a revealer of character. It affords a chance to
play the man and act the gentleman. It means
going into God's out-of-doors getting close to
nature, fresh air, exercise, a sweeping away
of mental cobwebs, genuine recreation of tired
tissues. It is a cure for care, an antidote to worry.
It includes, companionship with friends, social
intercourse, opportunities for courtesy, kindliness
and generosity to an opponent. It promotes
not only physical health, but moral force.
