The most exclusive golf clubs in the world are special places that elicit feelings of awe and wonder from most golfers. How great would it be to play some of the storied venues of the game such as Winged Foot, Riviera or Muirfield? Or, the ultimate for any golfer, Augusta National, home of the Masters? How to Play the World’s Most Exclusive Golf Clubs highlights the many ways that golfers can enter the world’s elite clubs, located in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. How do you go about gaining access to some of some of golf’s hallowed grounds? Who do you have to know? How do you find a member? What is the etiquette to follow? This book gives insights into what has worked for the author and other motivated golfers.

An avid golfer and student of golf history, John brings an unparalleled enthusiasm, a unique perspective, and an insider’s insights to the task. Throughout each chapter there are personal stories about the author’s experience and unique stories about some of the lengths to which golfers have gone to gain access to golf’s premier venues. The proliferation of golf course ratings by magazines, combined with the expanded information about golf courses and golf architecture that the Internet age has brought to the fore, has created a new and expanding group of golf aficionados who dream of playing at exclusive golf courses and are eager to learn the secrets of doing so. This book’s coverage of more than 125 global clubs will be perfect for any player.
