Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Once bitten by the “golf bug,” golfers are at the mercy of the game and its supernatural powers. Golf Nuts: You’ve Got To Be Committed is an outgrowth of the founding of the Golf Nuts Society in 1986 by author Ron Garland. It is an in-depth recounting of the founding of the Society and a glimpse into the mind of the man who started “the most unique golf association in the world.” All golfers are at least a little nuts about the game, and because of that, every golfer will be able to relate to the zany antics of the members of the Golf Nuts Society. The book relates real stories about real members who are otherwise perfectly normal human beings. You will identify with them because you’ve done many of the same things as these self-professed “Golf Nuts”.

From the Back Cover

“If you love golf, you’ll love this book. It’s for golf nuts. The certifiable kind, like you and me.”
—Michael Jordan, 1898 Golf Nut of the Year

Format: Hardcover
"Golf Nuts" is a book about people who share a common passion. Head Nut #0001 - Ronald Garland goes into grave detail about how he established the "Golf Nuts Society" and some of the unique characters that belong to this growing organization. This is a great book if you know someone who is obssessed with the game of golf. Its very easy to read. The sample test in the back of the book to see if you should be committed is hysterical, the glossary and world records will leave the reader in stitches because only those searching for the "secret" will understand. I loved the book so much that I joined the "Golf Nuts Society" -- #3177.

What an entertaining read! I had no Idea the "Society" existed. Was amazed to read all of the fanatics stories and Ron Garland's personal adventures on and off the golf course. Well organized and written. LMAO!

We first became acquainted with this book through our local library, and we decided we needed to add it to our collection. Stories are entertaining and puts your addiction to this sport in perspective (or maybe not). A great gift for your favorite golfer.

This is much ado about nutting, and it is fun, relevant readers to golfers. We can relate maybe not so much to all of the eccentricies, but boy can we relate to the golf fever illustrated.
From the search for the secret, to aids, to collecting, to playing in all conditions at all times, et al, this is certainly an entertaining collection, and one to add to one's book addiction, I mean collection.
The Head Nut certainly is deserving, and the array of famous and not-so is highlighted for me by several nut incidents which make my "nut all of fame" -- E.M. Vanderweghe who literally had his magic grip frozen to the club in the auto drive from the range to the course (talk about losing it from the range to the first tee) and the guy who mistakenly locks his rental car keys in his bag in the trunk with only ten minutes before tourney teeoff, then prying open a path to his clubs, removing them one-by-one in a bloody mess. You'd wouldn't believe in any of this if you haven't already gotten the bug.
Nuts to all of you! This is good stuff!
