Editorial Reviews

BlueInk Reviews
And "joy" is the key word in these short essays. Hagman excels in relating the transcendence she feels by merely setting foot on the hallowed grounds of golf's iconic courses. Those who share her passion for the game will find it easy to understand this feeling.

The author leaves some questions unanswered in essays that relate to her personal life rather than her time on the links. But overall, Close Encounters on a Golf Course is a delight. Any golfer lucky enough to be paired Hagman would have the time of his life."
