This is a hand-revised pre-release copy of The Story of Augusta National Golf Club by Clifford Roberts. The book contains tons of corrections and editorial notes. Corrections marked throughout the book, and in margins, as well as on post it notes still attached to the relevant page. 

This book comes from the Estate of Kathryn Murphy, the longtime Augusta National employee who was Clifford Roberts' personal secretary. Judging by the existence of this book, we believe it's safe to say that Murphy assisted Cliff Roberts with the writing and/or editing of this famous book. 

Autographed Clifford Roberts book plate on the interior. Good condition with poor condition dust jacket (missing entire back), though the dust jacket can easily be replaced with a better version.
