    The Little Book of Golf Law is a wonderfully interesting, entert

    The Little Book of Golf Law is a wonderfully interesting, entertaining, and accessible sequel to Prof. Minan’s earlier publication, The Little Green Book of Golf Law.  The new book discusses thirty-nine cases where common legal concepts were applied to issues that arose around golf.  




    Some of my favorites “holes” (chapters) involved unlikely “heroes” such as Casey Martin who successfully battled the PGA for an accommodation (a golf cart) and Elaine Joyce, who battled the Town of Dennis, MA for her right to play in men-only tournament.  But I also enjoyed the chapter about the resale of trademarked “pond balls,” having hit many such balls myself (and having left them there rather than risk disturbing the alligators.)




    Prof. Minan tells a great story, brings the parties to life, and explains complicated legal concepts in an accessible way.  This book would be a perfect gift for anyone who loves the game, and should be recommended  reading for every law student.
