LexJet Blog – Printing the History of Golf from Scotland to the U.S.

April 9th, 2012

Photography and the modern game of golf developed around the same time. Coincidence? Probably, but it was a fortuitous coincidence since we’ve been left with at least some photographic history of those early years. It’s likely that the largest and highest-quality collection of early golf photography is in the hands of Howard Schickler of Sarasota. Read More

Really Cool – 5 stars

by Jack. J

Been playing this game since I was 4. Now I’m a golf coach and I absolutely love the game and this app. Shows really interesting facts about the game for a lifetime and goes in depth into the origins all the way up to now. A must have for golf fans. The only issue with it is at some points you have to pay for the content but other than that it’s awesome!

Impressive and informative – 5 stars

by watcha33

This is a beautiful app – top quality. Amazing content. It’s easy and simple to scroll through, and at the same time I can dig a little deeper. I just like the “feel” of it all. The cover flow of all the images is just terrific. I’ll come many times when I want to read a new story about some golfer or place I’d never heard of. I’m not a golfer, but I love history, old photographs and learning about people and their passions. The story of women is really interesting.

Great Fun – 5 stars

by GolfgirlSW

I really didn’t know what to expect when I downloaded this app, but was pleasantly surprised by the amazing number of stories and photographs of early golfers and the types of balls and clubs they used back then. I particularly love the slide shows on golf fashion and the section on women’s golf. Great way to impress your friends at the clubhouse…
