Every decade of the 20th century and many great writers—including P. G. Wodehouse, Paul Gallico, Don Marquis, and John Updike—are represented in these great tales of golf. British duffers, amateur sleuths, pros, hustlers, plodders, cheaters, starry-eyed lovers, and crass finaglers are the focus of these stories, which range from comedy to tragedy, mystery, action, introspection, and romance. Each reveals a true love of the game and a wry understanding of golf’s frustrations, perplexities, embarrassments, and moments of pure delight.

This was a gift from a relative who doesn't play golf, so I wasn't very optimistic about liking the collection. Well, it was easily the best set of golf stories I've ever read -- wonderful variety of styles and stories and time periods in every respect. I liked the book so much that for Christmas I bought it for my golfing buddy, hence the Amazon purchase. Highly recommended for anyone who likes golf and good writing, including some fairly literary stuff. (

Great gift for the golf lover who enjoys a good read. The last story is one of my favorite comedic short stories. I gave away my first copy and replaced it for continued personal use

bought as a gift for someone so don't know how the book itself is. Gave it 4 stars as the text is nice and clear and large. Almost like in a large-print book. Good construction too.

Like great golf stories? About ball that goes where hitter wants? A club used by a champion that swings that way with whoever swings it? What Sherlock Holmes would do with a golf club in his hand?

This is but few of the absolutely wonderful short stories to do with golf, selected over years by authors from differing eras, but with all same theme: revolvement around getting the white pill in the hole.

Tough to select any favorites out of this excellent selection of 24, but "Golf is a Nice Friendly Game" is my selection. How can you miss with a tale wound around giving away one's whole wartime allocation of rubber for golf ball business based on wager of two old CEO duffers with their sponsored pros playing?

Must have for the avid golf reader! Pure enjoyment!
