2010 golf calendars ready and waiting for a home
Walking through the mall the other day, I was amazed that the 2010 calendars are already ready and waiting to be purchased at bookstores. I haven’t given up on 2009 yet, but I guess it’s the “early bird gets the worm” mentality when it comes to getting those calendars on the shelves.
Nobody pumps out great golf calendars like Workman Publishing Co. out of New York.
The “365 Days of Golf 2010″ is a full-sized, picture-a-day premier hanging calendar for golfers. It features photos of more than 250 golf courses.
Each month works off of a theme. January looks at some great new layouts, including three newer Washington state golf courses I enjoyed earlier this year: the Prospector and Tumblecreek at Suncadia Resort and the magnificent Chambers Bay. February is dedicated to the King Arnold Palmer’s best layouts, like the soul-stirring Tralee in southwest Ireland. Donald Ross’ influence dominates March. August is the haven of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama, although I’ll be playing them next week, the first week in November.
Spending $12.99 on that calendar is a no-brainer. For your desk at work, consider a page-a-day calendar. The 365 Golf Holes from the editors of Golf Digest Publications touts itself as America’s Bestselling Golf Calendar. It’s easy to see why with all the great photography.
Or go with the 2010 Golf Quips, Quotes and Jokes! Calendar. I love the famous quotes the best. Cruel course architect Pete Dye explains his design philosophy best this way: “Golf is not a fair game, so why build a course fair?” NFL legend Lynn Swann sheds light on the game’s frustrations: “I come off the golf course, and I’m always down. So I go home, I take a shower, I put on my four Super Bowl rings and I say, I am an athlete.”
