about

There''s an incredible similarity between the mechanics of a fly cast and the swing of a golf club. Perhaps that''s why Chris Santella, author of "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die," can be found on the links when he''s not on the stream. With "Fifty Places to Play Golf Before You Die," Santella gives voice to his other sporting passion, interviewing 50 people intimately connected to the sport about some of their favorite courses around the world.
For both passionate golfers and armchair travelers, this gorgeous full-color book presents the world''s greatest golf venues, the personal favorites of renowned players, course architects, and other experts in the sport. From Ballyliffin, Ireland''s northernmost course, whose rumpled fairways wander along the North Sea in the shadows of Glashedy Rock, to New Zealand''s Cape Kidnappers, perched atop dramatic cliffs some 500 feet above the ocean, the book''s beautiful photographs capture the architecture, noteworthy holes, location, and ambiance that make these courses standouts for ardent golfers. A brief history of each course, an experiential account-filled with local color-from the person recommending the venue, and trip-planning advice provide adventurous readers with all the information they need to chip and putt their way around the globe.
A close-up look at golf''s top courses around the world, recommended by such experts as Nick Faldo and Christie Kerr (pro golfers), Pete Dye and Tom Doak (course architects), Brian McCallen (editor and author), and Donald Trump
With breathtaking color photographs of each site, this is a great gift for avid golfers and armchair travelers alike
