Jersey 183

     In 1978 Jersey issued a set of four stamps to commemorate the centennial of the Royal Jersey Golf Club, and to honor Harry Vardon (1870-1937), a professional golfer born in Jersey.
     One of the stamps features a map of the Golf Course, and a representation of a statue of Harry Vardon which stands at the entrance of the Golf Club. A compass rose in the lower left of the stamp shows the orientation of the stamp.
