From Cliff Schrock, Book Editor, Golf Digest/Golf World
"A great read to pick up from time to time for inspiration."From the United State Golf Association website:
... Part of White's one-man effort to increase the awareness of golf poetry is his book, Golf Course of Rhymes: Links between Golf and Poetry through the Ages, which contains nearly 120 works spanning hundreds of years. The anthology is the culmination of six years of research ... From Golf.com by Jeff SilvermanNow for something completely different. White, a retired MIT professor, lets the big doggerel eat in an appealing collection that covers the fairways [with poetry by golfers of old.] ...White seasons his mix with contributions from his own pen, and enjoyable commentary from end to end.
From Peter Alliss "the voice of British Golf":
"... Leon White, through months, ye perhaps years of labour, has gone through so many golfing archives to discover what may turn out to be the ultimate in golf course rhymes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have."
"if you are looking for a gift for someone who loves the links, I would highly recommend Golf Course of Rhymes. It's a fun and entertaining read ... As Robert Trent Jones Jr. said in his foreword, Golf Course of Rhymes 'is the best round of golf you will ever play without swinging a club.' I couldn't agree more."
From the Author
This book began with a question: "Is there a literature of golf poetry?" Initially using the internet, I discovered a wealth of golf poems dating back to 1638. Looking through long-forgotten books and old golf magazines, I found more than 90 poems and related stories that will add a new dimension to the experience of golf for the reader. I had lots of fun putting the book together. Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the famous golf architect, wrote the Foreword. Larry Lambrecht, an award winning golf photographer, provided the cover.
