Every golfer dreams of making a pilgrimage to the British Isles, and it sometimes seems as though every golfer is in fact making that pilgrimage, especiall. Finegan provides a charming guide to the courses and the towns, the inns and the eateries to be found along the way. He highlights the best of the not quite four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire; gives advice about lunch after your round at Sandwich; raises a cup of grog at Gog Magog; and tackles the playing and pronouncing problems posed by Pwllheli.

Every golfer dreams of making a pilgrimage to the British Isles, and it sometimes seems as though every golfer is in fact making that pilgrimage, especially when you're trying to book a tee time. The legendary courses of Scotland and Ireland are magnificent shrines, but their fame has obscured the greatness of the golf to be found all across the landscape of England and Wales. During that period I have from time to time considered writing a book on the courses of England and Wales. It would personally be quite satisfying to be able to point to a trilogy that covers the entire golfing world of Britain and Ireland.

Although no pictures James W Finegans words alone paint a wonderful vision of golf courses that are waiting to be discovered and played. I am a huge fan and have many of his books.
