Forbidden Fairways: African Americans and the Game of Golf

Front Cover
Sleeping Bear Press, 1998 - Social Science - 216 pages
The emergence of Tiger Woods on the international golf scene has brought the world's attention to the African-American experience in golf. But before Tiger, names like Ted Rhodes, Bill Spiller, Ann Gregory, and so many others remained in relative obscurity without being given the chance to compete. This book celebrates their efforts and then looks at the direction in which we are headed. Take an in-depth look at the histories, and stories, of some of the pioneering African American athletes who attempted to break the barriers surrounding the game of golf. Desriptive and intuitive, "Forbidden Fairways" will let you in on the real story.
