Review

"At less than $35, this is one of those well-worthwhile gems that you should have within reach. It is one of the best new golf books in its price range." --Golf Today, June 2005

"The book "1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die" is a terrific book for any golfer, one that is tailormade for browsing. Pick it up and it will be hard to put down without thumbing through at least a few pages. As the title makes clear, this is a book about the best-of-the-best golf holes (as chosen by a team of experts) at courses around the world." --golf.about.com, February 2005

"Golfers can dream away spring's rainy days by thumbing through 1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die..." --The Houston Chronicle, February 15, 2005

Format: Hardcover
I thought that the book was too small and many of the golf courses did not show pictues of the holes but rather a professional hitting a golf ball which could have been any where.

For Example, pg 92 Kooyonga Golf Club, hole No2 has two pictures of two golf pro's hitting golf balls with no picture of the golf hole itself. Similarly on page 24, Royal Melbouren GC hole No. 1, no picture but two close ups of golf pro's.

Los Angeles Country Club Nth Course, 3 holes , no pictures.

National Golf Club, Moonah course, 6 holes, not one picture.

Additionally, the structure of the book is poor as it should have depicted every golf course by hole in alphabetical order. Ie start with Aa Saint-Omer GC pg 1 and finish with Zaudin Golf Club on page 952.

Instead they have decided to chapterize the book from chapter 1 (1st Hole) through to the 18th chapter (18th hole) and fill each chapter with different holes from different clubs. If I want to see the holes of Spyglass Hill GC I Have to go to pgs. 44, 70, 164 and 648.

Great concept for a book but dissapointing in its design and structure.

A great birthday present from my daughter.Everyone justs grabs the book immediately and goes searching.

I am however a little worried about the accuracy.Having recently played the beautifully scenic Terrace Downs course in Rakaia New Zealand I wonder about the description of hole no.16.

It is shown as having a length of 220 yards!!!.This hole is about 140 yards maximum off the back tee.!! Even the commentary says the green is just a wedge away.

I hope this example was an exception to the rule.

Nonetheless a great book to have.

All the best Andrew Hopkins Christchurch New Zealand

I am not a golfer, but gave one as a gift. The reaction was so good that I am now routinely using it as a gift for golfers. [Even a non-golfer can enjoy the great photos.]
