Backspin: 120 Years of Golf in British Columbia
Originally written by Arv Olsen in 1992 the new edition of  Backspin has been completely updated and revamped to mark the 120th anniversary of golf in BC. Backspin is an encyclopedic reference on the growth of BC’s golf game, legendary golf figures past and present, and the golf courses of BC. Olson doesn”t neglect the fun, either, including entertaining golf anecdotes and writings from the early days.
