He is an avid golfer, and has played many courses throughout the US & outside of the US. He was so thrilled with the gift that he carried it around, clutched to his chest, after it was given to him. That it was signed by the BOD made it even more special.
Now, about the book. It is large, heavy, thick, and the photographs are wonderful. Lots of info about each course. He had played some of them.
You can't go wrong with this book, especially as a gift.
The narrative by Darius Oliver is wonderfully frank, well-argued and original. I also enjoyed his clear and joyous descriptions of each of his favorite courses throughout the world.
The focus of the book is on the courses outside America, because so much excellent material already exists on the Top U.S. Courses.
The book covers the Best Courses in the UK and Ireland, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and Central America, Asia and Africa.
It may not be possible to visit all these Masterpieces of World Golf but this book is the next best thing.
The benefit of acquiring this book for your library is that the courses listed are generally playable for a golf traveler with a spirit of adventure. In the countries I mentioned above, the golf clubs are often available for play by overseas players and not limited to those connected by virtue of some reciprocal play arrangement.
The author's earlier work on Australian courses is worth considering for additional coverage of Australia's best courses. I purchased this book during my first trip to Australia and it might be available through online sources.
The companion volume that includes only U.S. courses is a thorough and complete review of venues in this country, some of which are available for public play.
