Not a Typical Day on the Golf Course … or Is It?

Nick and Jay have played golf together for years at the country club. They bond over whiskey, women, and work, as guys do. But on this particular beautiful day, Nick and Jay’s game will go to levels they didn’t anticipate, revealing life-changing powerful wisdom and inner truths about each man. As the day progresses, balls meet startling and unusual fates, the drinks cart dispenses wisdom, humor, honesty, and … a dark and frightening foe on the golf course, playing all around them, near them, next to them and within them. As their conversations reveal long-held secrets that will forever define who they are, where they come from, and what they stand for, the dark shadows of the golf course fall closer, engulfing them in a perilous confrontation and conclusion to the end of the round and the day’s bizarre events and powerful life-altering meaning.

    Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite On the Hole by Jeff

    Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

    On the Hole by Jeff Bacot tells the story of Jay ‘Skew’ Hewitt, a vice president of a production and music distribution company, and Nick Landers, a tax attorney. They are both regular golfers at the Regina Buck & Duck Hunt Country Club. After eighteen holes, the friendship between the two men is explored; suddenly, it is not just about golf anymore. It is about life.

    If I were to pick one word to describe this novel, it would probably be “genius”. Golf is not my favorite sport, but this novel might just changed my mind about it. On the Hole is an engaging story about the game between two men. Jeff Bacot has written some of the best complete characters that I have read so far. But the greatest thing about the story is that it is not just about golf, but thought-provoking things such as relationships, love, friends, family, and even oneself. It is fiction but it is definitely has a lot of heart. And to categorize On the Hole in one genre seems inappropriate because it has adventure, romance, tear-jerking moments and of course, humor as well. All in all, Jeff Bacot gives everything in this book for readers to enjoy. You don’t have to be a golfer or even love golf for that matter to read the story – this is not just for the guys as my fellow female readers will enjoy reading it as well. A highly recommended book for a fun, relaxing read.
