Charleston was arguably the most important/influential city of all the colonies in the 18th century, though it was only the 4th largest (behind Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia): exporting buckskins, rice, tea, indigo, and cotton and also the foundings of the first American college, library, theatre, museum, european settlement, opera performance, independent government in the colonies, golf club, and cotton mill.

[It is necessary to note that the citation of “golf” in New York [Albany] in 1659 is speaking of the play of a game in the streets, which is not the game of golf even if the equipment was golfing equipment and people played to holes in the ground. This would be much different from the actual traditional known and established game of golf as it was played at that time and today. So, the date of golf coming to America actually via Charleston, SC, in 1743 is still not just arguable but most likely and undeniable.]

Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of the print of Harleston Green Painted, 1786 I am thinking that this image would be available as a print/poster just as is the First Shipment of Clubs to America which I found in Charleston.

I believe this was specially commissioned for the book, Golf Charms of Charleston… What that might mean for availability I don’t know, but perhaps contacting the author of this book, Joel Zuckerman, might be the a good avenue for pursuing a print.
