The Cobble Valley Books

Authored by A.W. Tillinghast


The Tillinghast 
Association

In August of 1915, a reviewer writing in the American Golfer magazine wrote, "We have just finished reading with feigned regret, Mr. A.W. Tillinghast's book "Cobble Valley Golf Yarns"... regret that we have reached the end, the eighteenth hole as it were..."


Tilly's passion for writing and telling a story found a home at the Cobble Valley Golf Club, a mythical place where he delighted his contemporaries with tales of whimsy and mystery. Today these delightful tellings might seem simple, but actually they give an insight into just how much we have changed, grown, and in many ways diminished as people.


Both 1915's, Cobble Valley Golf Yarns, and its 1925 sequel, The Mutt, will allow the reader to see a bit into the mind of the architectural genius of Tilly and more into him as a man, but mostly into the reader himself and the joy he derives from the game of golf.
