    DescriptionThis will not be a book that will attempt to simply detail courses where major championships have been played, but courses whose architecture, noteworthy holes, location, and ambiance make them "must play" venues for passionate golfers. It includes Royal County Down (Ireland), Pebble Beach (California), Bandon Dunes (Oregon), Cape Kidnappers (New Zealand), and the National Golf Links of America (New York). Each chapter will be linked to a golf "guru" or celebrity personality; the featured course will be presented as the individual's recommendation for one of their favorite courses in the world. The expert golfers will include Peter Jacobsen (pro golfer), Pete Dye (famous golf course architect), Brian McCallen (former travel editor of Golf magazine and author of Top 100 Courses You Can Play), Christie Kerr (pro golfer), and Donald Trump. There will also be a foreword by golf pro Mark O'Meara. Chapter contents will include interviews from the recommending personality, a brief bio, a history of the course, an experiential account with as much local colour as possible, and some "if you go" information. This will be the perfect gift for avid golfers and armchair travellers alike.
