Covering the area between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains and from British Columbia to northern Utah, this guide is written for local and visiting golfers. What distinguishes it from other such books is that it’s not simply a compilation of dry facts like yardage and slope rating for each course (although some of this information is included). Nor is it meant to be a comprehensive guide to all the courses in the area. Rather, this is a travel guide for people who love golf. It’s a fun, absorbing read filled with colorful descriptions of the courses along with the cities and regions where they're located, rendered with the author's irresistible blend of humor and personal anecdote. The book’s 95 profiled courses — a mix of inexpensive venues, upscale public courses, and special-occasion resorts — provide a springboard for a lively discussion of golfing as sport, diversion, and pleasure.
