“The Story of Golf in Fifty Holes” by Tony Dear


The Story of Golf in Fifty Holes explores the 600-year history of the “game of honor.” It reveals the excitement and despair, the challenges overcome and the sweet victories, the sportsmanship and the stars bursting onto the scene. It also describes the developments in course design, like the first manmade water hazard, and the first central fairways bunkers.

In 50 chapters, the book describes the holes, their contribution to golf course architecture, their importance to the careers of specific players, and their place in the overall story of golf.

For golfers and fans alike, The Story of Golf in Fifty Holes is an exciting treat they will return to again and again.
