Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"Golfers’ coffee tables are already swaying under the weight of oversize books celebrating the sport, but here’s one more that needs adding to the pile. The premise is simple but enticing: have 18 top golf professionals choose and discuss their favorite golf holes and then compile golf’s ultimate 18, the best first hole in the world, the best second, and on through a full 18-hole fantasy course, all illustrated with stunning color photographs. Add to the mix the fact that each hole has some special meaning to the golfer who introduces it, and you have a great combination of breathtaking visuals and fascinating golf history. Fans who watch golf on television will recognize many of these holes, but they may not remember all the stories associated with them: Jerry Pate’s one-iron hole-in-one, for example, on the postcard-perfect sixteenth at Cypress Point, perhaps the world’s most beautiful golf hole. A dreamy book for anyone who follows professional golf."
Atlanta Journal Constitution
“Golf’s Ultimate Eighteen” offers a collection of 18 golf icons discussing the most unforgettable holes in the world. Among those participating were Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ernie Els, Hale Irwin and Amy Alcott. The book includes some beautiful photography and exhibits Steve Eubanks’ ability to tell a story. ...” --(Stan Awtrey)
ForeWord
“Golf’s Ultimate Eighteen accomplishes the difficult task of combining interesting stories, useful information, and top-quality photography to create a treat for both the mind and the eyes. Perhaps this is a book best kept for those moments when one wonders why one bothers to play golf. Sometimes it’s refreshing to put aside the instructional books and just enjoy the beauty and lore of a great game.” -- (Jeff Friend)
Library Journal
Golf is addictive. When not playing a course, golfers obsess over equipment, buy instructional books, and watch the sport on television. In their heart of hearts, golfers are also course designers. What Eubanks (To Win and Die in Dixie) has done is assemble a fantasy golf course made up of existing memorable holes. These 18 holes come at the recommendation of notable professional golfers, including Palmer and Nicklaus. It is worth noting that Augusta National has two featured holes, whereas all the other holes come from different courses. Each hole is featured here with dramatic photography, a layout with a yardage scale, and the commentary of several golfers. The author admits that the "greatest" really is a matter of opinion and that other golfers might have other choices. If there is a quibble with the book, it is in the choice of golf professionals. Notably absent are Tom Watson, Johnny Miller, Tiger Woods, and Annika Sorenstam. VERDICT A good choice for libraries with large sports collections, and an option for many golf enthusiasts.—Steven Silkunas, North Wales, PA
