1924 Wills Golfing Overview

1924 Wills Golfing Courses Golf.jpgThis interesting set featured not golfers but golf courses from around the UK. The set was issued by W.D. & H.O. Wills Company of Bristol and London in England for their Wills Cigarettes packages. In all, a total of 25 cards were in the set.

Fronts of the cards included color pictures of the golf courses. While pictures of golfers were shown on some, they are generic in nature and not specific players.

Backs of the cards included the ‘Golfing’ name of the set as well as a card number followed by a long description of the particular course shown. Among the notable cards in this set is one featuring the St. Andrews Golf Course, frequent host of the British Open.
