Club Life: The Games Golfers Playby John Steinbreder
The golf club may be most commonly regarded as a place where men and women play that royal and ancient game, but truth be told, it also serves as a sort of Petri dish for some of the most outrageous, hysterical, and inane behavior found in modern society. You have hackers and stiffs. Flakes and dilettantes. Corporate big wigs and trust fund babies. They all exist
The golf club may be most commonly regarded as a place where men and women play that royal and ancient game, but truth be told, it also serves as a sort of Petri dish for some of the most outrageous, hysterical, and inane behavior found in modern society. You have hackers and stiffs. Flakes and dilettantes. Corporate big wigs and trust fund babies. They all exist in a kind of upper crust Animal House, where the denizens wear Burberry blazers instead of togas, and guzzle gin-and-tonics rather than beers. But the laughs, and the head shaking, are very much the same.

'Side Car' Steinbreder tells the stories we used to be able to tell with drink and cigar in hand without fear of retribution from some bebarbitive Burke wannabe screaming to the golf committee. So sit back wrap your hand around a cold one,I don't mean ex wife,and enjoy one of our great yarn burners without worrying about receiving a pink slip from Burke,Sarandon or the local lady with the piano legs and grand sense of entitlement.
Lots of chuckles for anyone who has ever been a member of a club, wished they were a member of a club or even those who have esched the honor of being a member of a club. The characters are all in there, including yourself.
As a long time member of two fine clubs it was fun to find so many situations that were so familar. And John Steinbreder knows how to write.
Its nice to read a book that tells it like it is. In this age of political correctness, where everything written and stated is offensive, Mr. Steinbreder's stories of Club Life are refreshing and hilarious. His friend Jenkins is truly a Man's Man. Look forward to the next one.
