Meet the Author

Author Rob Armstrong has drawn a series of interesting and informative word portraits, buttressed by photos and course maps, of the best resort and daily-fee golf courses in Virginia and West Virginia. For nearly twenty-five years, Armstrong was an award-winning correspondent for CBS News. He now contributes to various golf publications, teaches at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, and tries to keep his handicap in the single digits. His yearly jaunts to the Emerald Isle to hit the links led him to write Golfing in Ireland: The Most Complete Guide for Adventurous Golfers (pb), also published by Pelican.
