A View From the Red Tees challenges through humor, sometimes wry, the stereotypes and discrimination that women golfers face today. It looks askance at the man who does not want to be paired up with a woman. It respectfully laughs at the golf store sales clerk who thoughtlessly greets the woman golfer with the question: "Are you looking for something for your husband today?" It also laughs with women about how they play and their relationships. Golf was once a male-dominated game, and the links remain a pivotal field where business and political agendas are played out - but today women are shouldering their clubs and making their own deals on the greens. These women don't get equal treatment when they tee off, though ... The book celebrates the camaraderie and competition among women golfers. It honors women who play the game - and it even recognizes that men can sometimes be wonderful!
