Alabama Golf Association: The First 100 Years The Alabama Golf Association is 100 years old this summer and I was commissioned to write a book ti- tled Alabama Golf Association: The First 100 Years to celebrate this signal milestone. After years of research, interviews and writing, the AGA has now taken receipt of this coffee-table style, 11" x 8.5" landscape book which is 280 pages, includes over 300 images and is around 86,000 words. From the early days of the association, through almost 100 State Amateurs, the reader is transported to yesteryear as champion- ships are chronicled, char- acters introduced and tales told, in some cases, from first-hand reports and many gleaned from newspaper stories of the day. State Amateur champi- ons with such memorable names as Files Crenshaw through Smylie Kaufman, and all the champions be- fore, after and in-between, are introduced. The dust jacket of Alabama Golf Association: The First 100 Years features storied State Amateur champions (top, L-R): Glenn Crisman, M.C. Fitts, Miss Chris Spivey and Mrs. Kathy Hartwiger, and (bottom, L-R): Sam Perry, Sam Farlow, Mrs. Virginia Derby Grimes, Miss Bee McWane, Jackie Cummings and Scudday Horner.
