For years, Americans have had a keen interest in the game of golf. Currently, there are over 1.1 million golfers in northern California alone and twenty-three million golfers in the United States. For golfers who are interested in, or who already enjoy the public greens of the West Coast, Golfing Northern California offers a practical and indispensable guide to the region's 112 courses and includes an unbiased evaluation system that rates each course objectively.

As a player at both professional and amateur levels for the past twenty-five years, author Tim Keyser traveled over 14,000 miles to play each of the eighteen-hole golf courses in the book. Utilizing the wealth of his firsthand knowledge and experience, Keyser critiques each course individually. By devising a simple, yet effective, system of ratings, Keyser has established quality categories which range from "outstanding" to "not recommended." Furthermore, the final quality rating takes into account the expenses which may be incurred by players.

From the San Francisco Bay to the Monterey Peninsula, and even the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Keyser explores the greens of Northern California. He gives directions to each location and offers advice on the most suitable tee times. In addition, the author rates the suitability of the course for various skill levels.

With an easy, quick reference listing and even a trivia quiz, Golfing Northern California is the essential item for all enthusiasts planning to play in this region.
