A.I.B. Bank for all their support.

The book was written and compiled by Dermot Gillette and John Redmond, who had previously collaborated on the history of the Irish Ladies Golf Union in 1993.

There were no green fields where golfing pioneers could conjure images of lush fairways and challenging greens.

Instead, what the founders saw in those fateful, embryonic days of a century ago, was a mass of furze, rose, heather, hedges and rock.

Yet, instinctively they felt sure they had found a worthy home for the Royal and Ancient game. And so Killiney golf club was created.

That the founders' astuteness has been vindicated is outlined in an evolving 100 years old story, handsomely enriched by complementary illustrations.

At the heart of it all was the objective to provide a worthy representation of a club noted for its "family" atmosphere and inviting ambience, virtues of which the members can be justly proud.
