This complete set of Wills Tobaccco cards features 24 of the most famous golf courses in the British Isles in 1924, when these cards were produced. The delightful paintings on the front provide great representations of the courses nearly a century ago. All the cards are matted and presented in a 19 3/4" x 15 1/2" frame so they are visible through glass on both the back of the frame as well as the front.  This allows both the front and back of each card (which is full of good information about each course) to be viewed. 

Among the featured courses are St. Andrews, Lytham & St. Anne's, Newcastle (County Down, Ireland), Gleneagles, Hoylake, Royal Cinque Ports Club, North Berwick, Prestwick, Sandwich, Troon, Turnberry, Westward Ho! and a dozen more. The cards are remarkably well preserved.
