Green Memories is one of three autobiographies by Darwin, considered the greatest golf writer of all time. This book is widely considered one of Darwin’s finest works. “Thanks to Bernard, golf has acquired the sturdiest literature of any game. The best is Darwin’s… because he showed the writers who came after him how golf should be written” (H.W. Wind).
