Matthew Dunn on his "Bingo Bango Bongo" golf book, Massey on The Quarry Golf Club in Ohio, the 588 Cleveland wedge
Hear this latest episode of TravelGolf.com This Week.
Author Matthew Dunn’s new novel Bingo Bango Bongo is a murder mystery set on the golf course. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Dunn about the book.
“The idea came to me as I was recalling a par-3 hole on a course I played a lot growing up,” Dunn says. “The green was below the tee box, kind of crowded on all three sides by a forest of trees. It was a perfectly secluded spot for putting and quiet solitude, but it was also a great place for catching a bullet in the eyes. And that stuck in my head throughout the years.”
A new spectacular golf course has replaced an old quarry in Canton, Ohio. Blogger T.R. Massey talks about the impressive golf course.
“It’s called The Quarry Golf Club,” Massey says. “They’ve used the site in a very interesting way to make a lovely golf course, which probably has 500 feet of fall from top to bottom. And there are these huge quarry lakes all over the site.”
Plus, in this week’s What Do You Like segment, blogger Ron Montesano raves about the 588 Cleveland wedge.
“I like the grooves, I like the look of them,” Montesano says. “In terms of the way the club head is built, it seems like a lot of the companies have migrated toward the Cleveland look.”
