Welcome to Valuable Book Group, specialists in golf books

About Us

Owned and operated by John Sabino, the Valuable Book Group is located in one of the finest golf related regions in the world in Princeton, New Jersey. Located 45 minutes from the USGA Library in Far Hills, New Jersey and 45 minutes from the #1 ranked course in the world, Pine Valley. The USGA has the largest and most complete collection of golf books in the world. Close proximity to the library helps us should be need to check a bibliographic reference or an item's authenticity.

Thirteen of top 100 courses in the world are within a three hour drive of our offices, a feat not possible anywhere else in the world. Our keen interest in the world's great golf courses has also allowed us to amass a large collection of club histories. Our favorite course is featured as the picture in the banner across the top of our website: Cypress Point's amazing 17th hole.

Valuable Book Group specializes in rare, antiquarian and used golf books. We utilize a proprietary database and have tracked sale prices and auction prices over the last fifteen years. John Sabino, the owner, is a member of the Golf Collectors Society and British Golf Collectors Society and an avid golf book collector.  He has also played golf around the world and is lucky enough to have played many of the world's top courses, including the top 100 golf courses in the world.

Like our approach to the game itself, we are also obsessive about collecting golf books. We would be happy to assist you in selecting books for a gift as well.
