Golf – it’s up there with the historic, noble games like tennis, equestrian and polo.
Entwined with the famous and the powerful (and let’s not forget the wealthy), including Mary Queen of Scots, since the 15th Century, golf is now highly alluring to a much larger population. In fact, according to this tome of a book, Golf Around the World
, there are sixty million people participating in this sport now – from men and women who are paid millions to play, to the local players you’ll find at the pub on a Saturday afternoon.
With so many players, the world needs a lot of golf courses (over 32,000 to be exact)…and that’s where Golf Around the World
truly shines. Inside its glossy pages, you’ll find spectacular photographs of some of the most glorious courses in the world, including those found in Great Britain, Ireland and the United States.
As you flip through these sprawling photographs, you’ll also be reading up on the history of golf and the techniques used by the professional players. Expert golf players have also had their input, so that you’ll feel like you’re right on each and every course shown.
