The Golf Lover's Guide to England
Publisher: White Owl
“Details the author’s selection of thirty-three premier English Golf Clubs. It is comprehensive, useful, well illustrated and an up-to-date reference book.” —West Sussex Golf Club
Every golf course around the world has one thing in common—they are all unique. Golf provides a different experience wherever you go. No two courses are ever the same and each has their own captivating story to tell.
Blessed with a rich and varied landscape, England has a prolific collection of coastal links and inland courses created by some of golf’s most cherished craftsmen; Sunningdale (Park Jr. & Colt), Walton Heath (Fowler), St Enodoc (Braid), Alwoodley and Moortown (MacKenzie) to name just a few.
This guide offers a golfer everything they would require to enjoy a great round of golf at the best courses England has to offer. All the information you need is right here—par scores, yardage, green-fee price indicators, booking procedure, history of each club and how best to play the course.
England is where golf’s greatest artists have gifted us moments to treasure for eternity. A young Ballesteros lifting the claret jug at Royal Lytham & St Annes, Bobby Jones storming to victory at Hoylake on his way to the grand slam, and who can ever forget Nicklaus and Jacklin bringing their titanic Ryder Cup battle to a close with a famous handshake at Royal Birkdale.
Sharing a border with its spiritual home, England is undoubtedly golf’s exquisite front garden.
“What really makes the book come alive is the amount of research Michael has clearly put in. Only the most ardent golf historian wouldn’t find out something new.” —UKGolfGuy.com
