Fineprint Books has bought the specialist golf book business from Green Umbrella, a UK based sports DVD & book distributor.

He will continue to offer antiquarian, out of print, new and hard to find golf books, covering all aspects of the game. He now has a large library of out of print titles from the last 100 years as well an expanding stock of recently published, but difficult to obtain golf books.

The catalogue, which can be viewed on-line at includes books covering all aspects of the game, including architecture and course design, club histories, rare programmes, biographies, handbooks, fiction & verse and instructional books from the world’s greatest golfers.
