The Golf Courses of the British Isles

Paintings by Harry Rountree

"Antiques need a polish every few years, and Tri-Horn International's restoration of the golfing paintings of Harry Rountree are truly exceptional. Set in England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales in the early 1900's, Rountree's watercolours, oils & charcoals captured these classic golf courses at a moment in time when the game was growing rapidly both there and across the Atlantic."
