With golf at something of a post-recession crossroads – the decline in participation looking as though it may have bottomed out, and new forms of golf emerging to meet the needs of the ‘recreational golfer’ – a timely overview of the industry is given in a new book GOLF ‘More than Just a Game’ written by Bruce Brockway and available as an Ebook on Kindle.
This is a ‘must read’ for all golfers and all those involved with golf! This fascinating little book is packed with information which most golfers will be unaware of. It looks at different types of golfer, and what makes golf so attractive to 60 million golfers worldwide – ‘The Golfing Experience’.
Golfers will learn how a golf course is created. Golf course design and construction are described in such a way that will make a round of golf so much more interesting and enjoyable.
Written for golfers, not as an in depth text book, more a light read to give golfers an awareness of golf, and golf courses which is not normally available to them. It explains how different types of golf courses affect the way the game is played. About the art of designing ‘the challenge’, about construction, drainage and irrigation, and how knowing about grasses, greens and their maintenance for example can affect their putting.
It also looks at the current issues facing golf and the measures being taken to ‘grow the game’. It even covers the impact of golf on the environment with regard to land use, appearance, water use, and wildlife habitats. It will give golfers a better understanding of the golf course and therefore make a round of golf a much more rewarding experience.
Equally useful to both beginners and experienced golfers, this thoroughly well-researched mine of information, written by an industry authority, is a little gem of book. Golfers should not set foot on another golf course until they’ve read this! To view the book click on the following link. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0148QNU1C?*Version*=1&*entries*=0
