Perfect golf books for the holidays or a long winter
It’s been a busy year for golf publishers. I’ve probably gotten more than 50 new golf books within the past 6-8 months to read-review.
Good for my game but bad for the books, many have been gathering dust on my shelf while I’ve been out chasing that little white ball. But with the long cold winter ahead, I’ve started dusting them off and diving in.
I’ll do the work for you, telling you which ones are worth purchasing for that golf-crazed fanatic on your holiday shopping list. Or maybe you’re the one looking for a good book to cuddle up with before the Yuletide log.
Here are the books I recommend as gifts that I’ll review in the next couple months:
* Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects (www.skyhorsepublishing.com) by Michael Patrick Shiels. $40.
* Golf 365 Days: A History by Robert Sidorsky (www.hnabooks.com). $29.95.
* The Seven Personalities of Golf by Darrin Gee (www.hnabooks.com). $17.95.
* Golf Magazine’s How to Hit Every Shot (www.golf.com). $29.95.
* Pete Dye Golf Courses by Joel Zuckerman (www.hnabooks.com). $50
* Golf Courses of the U.S. Open by David Barrett (www.hnabooks.com). $50.
* Planet Golf by Darius Oliver and David Scaletti (www.hnabooks.com). $60.
* The Masters: 101 Reasons to Love Golf’s Greatest Tournament (www.hnabooks.com). $18.95.
* Getting into Guiness by Larry Olmstead (www.harpercollins.com). $24.95.
Yes I know a few of these scribes – I’ve teed it up with Zuckerman, Olmstead and Shiels – but even that won’t keep me from enjoying their books. Just kidding guys!
