From the Publisher"Golf and The American Country Club tells us how elite, white Victorian America nurtured a game that made Tiger Woods a household name. In doing so, it provocatively offers the country club 'as part of the social capital that makes democracy possible,' despite its reputed history as a privileged, exclusive place for fat-cat Protestant white American men."
— Peter Levine, author of Ellis Island to Ebbets Field: Sport and the American Jewish Experience
"Golf and the American Country Club is an immensely interesting history concerning a subject intrinsic to the art form of designing golf courses. The business world of golf yearns for history related to its industry, and this volume provides historic information that business people seek."
— Geoffrey S. Cornish, past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects
