Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the sixth book in Chris Santella's bestselling "Fifty Places" series that returns to his most popular topic, golf. "Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die" is the sixth of Chris Santella's popular "Fifty Places" books and the first to return to golf - the series' most popular subject. In this new book Santella interviews 50 luminaries in the golf world about their favourite courses and experiences. Experts range from seasoned touring professionals (Amy Alcott, Fred Funk) to journalists and photographers (James Dodson, Brian Morgan) to golf course architects (Robert von Hagge, Bob Harrison) to travel specialists (Gordon Dalgleish, Mike Lardner). Old Country favourites like Royal Dornoch and Machrihanish in Scotland are featured, but so are venues far off the linksters' beaten path, like Nirwana, Bali, where the course runs beside rice paddies in the shadow of ancient temples and China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where players tee off at 10,000 feet, at the base of the Himalayas. More than 40 spectacular photos capture the allure of these unforgettable golf destinations.

HASH(0x91877678) étoiles sur 5 A good gift item for the golfer on your list. 18 novembre 2005
Par Bart King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This really is an attractive volume, and it constitutes a sort of fantasy list of unique golf courses. The author has gone out of his way to avoid many of the "obvious" big name courses that golfers know from televised tournaments. This gives the book an added interest factor, as one can read about exotic courses in such out-of-the-way locales as Morocco and Oregon.

Full Disclosure: I know Chris. He is a genial companion and a talented, assured writer.

HASH(0x918776cc) étoiles sur 5 O.K. Little Book 17 mai 2006
Par Carl E. Johnson Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Notice that the title is not "The Fifty Greatest Golf Courses." My title would be, "Fifty Interesting Places to Play Golf." Whether it's my title or the real title, the emphasis is on "places to play," or "destinations," not golf courses per se. More than fifty golf courses are covered. Which is not to say that the book does not include a lot of great golf courses. The format is mini-coffee table, with several pages of text for each destination and one small picture for most of the destinations. The quality of the printing, photo reproduction and binding in my copy is excellent. The text for each destination has been volunteered by a different prominent golf person. For example, Nick Faldo writes about the Royal Melborne Golf Club (West Course) in the Australian state of Victoria. Alice Dye about the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course (see a connection there?). On the plus side are the quality of the color photos and the introduction (to me) of golf courses in some far away places (e.g., Bhutan, Morocco, India, places, however, I'll never get to). On the minus side, I don't have a prayer of playing some of the U.S. courses, even after I die (e.g., Pine Valley, Sand Hills, National Golf Links of America), which, honestly, the author points out. Finally, why not at least one photo for each destination? From the two page description of the Pacific Grove muni: "[T]he back nine . . . takes you right out to the water and combines incredible views of the Pacific and Monterey Bay with windswept bluffs reminiscent of some of the great courses of Scotland and Ireland." Why no photo of this course? From the two page description of the Torekov Golf Club in Sweden (my ancestral home): ". . .a links-oriented course. . . You can view the sea from all eighteen holes. In the summer, wildflowers are blooming everywhere . . . ." I want a photo, darn it!

HASH(0x91877b04) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Pictures, really nice gift. 2 février 2006
Par Allen Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Being a golfer, I got this as a gift from one of my relatives. I must say the pictures are outstanding. This book makes me want to travel more to other countries to experience the pleasure of these courses. This book will always have a permanent place in my library. For excellent golf instruction that helped me to drastically reduce my handicap, I recommend,

The Ultimate Golf Instruction Guide: Key Techniques for Becoming a Zero Handicap Golfer or Better, isbn 1933023090

and

for more great pictures of specific golf holes, I recommend,

Golf Digest 365 Golf Holes Calender 2006, isbn 0761137343.

This maintains a permanent place on my office desk.

Par Lit Agent - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
How on God's green earth to you justify titling a book 50 PLACES TO PLAY GOLF BEFORE YOU DIE, and then proceed to list one private course after another that no ordinary mortal will ever be able to set foot on. They should call it 50 OF THE BEST COURSES YOU WILL NEVER PLAY. Skip it.

Par KP 8802 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Apparently, I didnt read the small print. I opened the book up and decided to check out Sand Hills. It's a great golf course and one that I would like to play one day. The only thing is you have to be in the very small percentage of golfers who actually have a membership or have greased one of the memebers palms to play there. It's frickin private!! This is definately not a "Bucket List book" for the average Joe or the other 95% of the population. I mean even I can feasibly see myself playing St. Andrews and Pebble Beach one day. I can't blame the author though, ask a bunch of prominent people in the golf biz a simple question, get invited to the course, mention a little bit about the person and the course and presto......a book... and free greens fees. Save your money for the next book that comes out "50 Public golf course you can play before you die".
