Amazing But True Golf Facts 2006 : Day-to-day Calendar
Golf is a $60 billion industry with 30,730 courses worldwide and 57 million golfers. Its popularity is even rising quickly in China, home to the largest golf complex on the planet with 180 holes. Everyone is crazy for the game, and it seems that avid golfers are willing to play anywhere, anytime, and anyway they can. For sixteen years, the Amazing But True Golf Facts Calendar has recounted their great, and sometimes wacky, stories. This year's edition includes some of the best. Readers will love the one about the American soldiers stationed in Iraq, who created a 150-yard hole in an area of dirt piles along the perimeter of their compound or the "residents" of America's largest maximum-security prison, who helped build and maintain The Prison View Golf Course, or Jay White, who sought to become the first man to ever hit a golf ball from the top of Mt. Everest. No matter how you slice it, golfers are hooked on the game and they'll certainly be hooked on this fun and fascinating calendar.
