Golfing New England: Courses, Legends, History, and Hints
When Francis Ouimet strolled across the street from his home to The Country Club of Brookline, Massachusetts, in 1913 and casually won the U.S. Open in a stunning playoff at the tender age of 19, America had a new hero. In Golfing New England, you'll read about not only the "Father of Amateur Golf," but also Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Curtis Strange, Nick Faldo, Nancy Lopez, Amy Alcott, Hollis Stacy, Annika Sorenstam, Meg Mallon, and even Michelle Wie, all of whom at one time or another had close ties to the legendary courses of New England. But there's much more than personalities in this authoritative and lavishly illustrated guide to New England golf. The area is blessed with a multitude of classical golf courses, many of which were designed by arguably the greatest architect of them all, Donald Ross. There are seaside courses with breathtaking views, spellbinding remote courses, and clubs that are a throwback to another era. Golfing New England also includes course listings; hints and tips for playing specifically in scenic New England; and features and columns on a variety of golf-related subjects, such as caddying, etiquette, and the major championships that the area has hosted over the years. Whether you live or play in New England, or just appreciate the area for its beauty and diversity, the comprehensive Golfing New England is the perfect gift for yourself or the golfer in your life.
