Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die
This is the sixth book in Chris Santella's bestselling "Fifty Places" series that returns to his most popular topic, golf. "Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die" is the sixth of Chris Santella's popular "Fifty Places" books and the first to return to golf - the series' most popular subject. In this new book Santella interviews 50 luminaries in the golf world about their favourite courses and experiences. Experts range from seasoned touring professionals (Amy Alcott, Fred Funk) to journalists and photographers (James Dodson, Brian Morgan) to golf course architects (Robert von Hagge, Bob Harrison) to travel specialists (Gordon Dalgleish, Mike Lardner). Old Country favourites like Royal Dornoch and Machrihanish in Scotland are featured, but so are venues far off the linksters' beaten path, like Nirwana, Bali, where the course runs beside rice paddies in the shadow of ancient temples and China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where players tee off at 10,000 feet, at the base of the Himalayas. More than 40 spectacular photos capture the allure of these unforgettable golf destinations.
