Great golf from years gone by. Not only fun to watch the golfers but watch the crowds, surroundings, cars and other 1960's era stuff. No high-tech graphics or Shot-links distances here - just a man standing at a cardboard sign of the hole with a pointer showing ball positions. Some of the celebrity "golfers" were better celebrities than golfers but some others were actually very good (or at least their handicaps were!). I have been luck enough to play the courses they filmed some of the episodes and I have to tell you the mountains and courses have not changed much but the clothing, golf clubs, balls and golf carts sure have...people used to get "dressed up" to go watch golfers....nothing like today's fans.
Wish I could buy the whole series on DVD somewhere. Anyone know where I can get one?
