Possibly the Best Golf Vacation Ever

Creator: James C. Coomer | Sports & Recreation - 2006-03

Written with humor and a colorful description of Scotland, this book could serve as a guide for others contemplating a similar experiment.

About this book
Traveling with ones wife can be enjoyable. Traveling with ones wife who is a non-golfer on a golfing vacation can be an adventure. Traveling with a non-golfing wife on a golf vacation to Scotland in an experiment. For the golfer, the needs are simple: golf clubs, golf balls, and a change of clothes. For a non-golfing spouse, every potentiality must be anticipated so that appearance and attire is always appropriate. For the golfer, food and accommodations are utilitarian. For the non-golfing wife, where one eats and where one stays determines what one wears. For the golfer, the elements are to be endured. For the non-golfer, they are to be avoided. For the golfer, travel between golf courses should be the shortest possible route. To the non-golfing wife, the route should be the most scenic with serendipitous stops along the way for sightseeing.(Possibly) The Best (Golf) Vacation Ever chronicles the planning, preparation, and execution of a golfing holiday to Scotland of a golfer husband and his non-golfing wife. From the Royal Dornoch Golf Club in the north of Scotland to Turnberry on the southern coast, the couple accommodates each others requirements to maximize their individual aspirations of what a Scottish holiday should entail. Written with humor and a colorful description of Scotland, this book could serve as a guide for others contemplating a similar experiment.

Golf Resorts, Where to Play in the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean

Creator: Jim Nicol, Barbara Nicol | Sports & Recreation - 2001-01-01

Hundreds of resorts are described in this book, with details including fees, course profile (par, hazards, yardage), resident pro information, accommodations (with prices), dining options and equipment rentals.

Publisher: Hunter Publishing, Inc

About this book
Golf resorts--it's a specialized niche for a savvy group that knows what it wants. What they want is golf, so the Nicols have devoted pages of attention to yardage and par, green fees, and special course features for hundreds of golf courses from Canada to Costa Rica. But there are other facets to consider as well, because the point here is to take a vacation, a golf vacation, where you get to luxuriate in your scenic vistas, eat your sumptuous meals, and play your 18 holes, too. From Casa De Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic to the Hound Ears Club in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, there are resorts for all sorts, with rustic lodges or posh hotels; full-scale gourmet pampering or low-key environments; all-golf, all-the-time atmospheres; or resorts that offer the works--tennis, fishing, sailing, or skiing--for the spouses who just aren't as intent on golf, perhaps, as you. The important thing is that all types of golf holidays are possible, and the Nicols have done the legwork so all you have to do is browse, choose, and make the reservations. "... the most useful guidebook... a great reference." -- The Traveling Golfer "If you love golf, Golf Resorts is for you." -- Relax Magazine " Make sure you have a copy on hand. This tome is the only pre-trip guide you'll need to research not only golf courses, but nearby lodging, restaurants, and additional recreation - for after-golf or non-golfing spouses. The book covers more than 600 courses. The authors have rated the top 50, breaking those down into 38 large and 12 small resorts." -- Northwest Airlines WorldTraveler Magazine "A guide written by golfers for golfers. Hundreds of resorts are described in this book, with details including fees, course profile (par, hazards, yardage), resident pro information, accommodations (with prices), dining options and equipment rentals. All establishments are open to the public." -- Amazon reviewer

    Learning a new hobby

    5/5 Trevor Knight - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Golf Swing: Reduce Your Handicap (Golf Swing, PGA, Reduce Handicap, Golf Clubs, Golf Course, Amateur Golf) (Kindle Edition) Its never too late to start learning a new skill most especially if one is interested in doing the sport they love themselves. I was curious with the feeling of swinging a golf club and making the ball fly away to reach the hole. This book offers to teach the proper way to swing the equipment thus executing the right way to a good swing. Different types of swing are also mentioned in this book making it an informative read about golfing. It also identifies the proper ball that will fit your style which makes it very helpful most especially for amateurs. Furthermore, it also differentiate the types of clubheads that will best prepare you for the skill proper. Good read.

    Doesn't look professionally put together but I learned some stuff.

    4/5 Onion Ninja - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Golf Swing: Reduce Your Handicap (Golf Swing, PGA, Reduce Handicap, Golf Clubs, Golf Course, Amateur Golf) (Kindle Edition) My Dad is close to his 60s and it's amazing how good he is in golf while I'm just flat out terrible lol. Tried to learn from him but I guess I couldn't just follow through. I decided like look for books about it just to see if they really existed and I'm surprised to find many. Got this one while it was free just to see what I can expect and I surprisingly learned some neat tricks. I found it a bit weird seeing a combination of drawings and photos and many of the other concepts simply lacked photos but I did the best I could thinking about the tips in my mind and I felt my handicap reduced.

    Bandon here I come!

    5/5 Adam (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Planning the Ultimate Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation (A Golf Vacation Insider Book) (Hardcover) This was money well spent. A quick read but with tons of useful advice - kinda like having a cheat sheet for setting up a vacation. Easy to make decisions based on the detailed info. Love the interviews with the golf course architects as it's nice to hear them describe their work in their own words for a change. If the courses are half as nice as these amazing photos, we're in for a treat! Bottom line: my friends and I have never been to Bandon but we chose it for our yearly golf trip and now we're confident we'll get the most out of it.

    Can't we all just get along?

    ..."The Emerald Greens" is the perfect book for my needs. Her comments about playing golf on a conveyor belt really struck home-all of the sudden I wanted to avoid Ballybunion! In large part, the book met my needs and I used it to help me select the courses I wanted to play. So, put that in your hat if you're planning a trip. The book definitely has value in that it nicely combines local attractions beyond golf.But I also have a number of complaints about the book. First, it's a travel book and I just couldn't ignore the stunning lack of pictures-especially of the courses. I'd rather look at 3 or 4 representative pictures of each course than wade through mind-numbing text about how water affects your tee-shot on the 4th hole. I also would have appreciated some kind of course rating system (3 stars or whatever) based on the author's judgment as to how tough a given course is, how scenic and so on. Or, perhaps, some authoritative, judgment statements about a given course... 3/5 Colin P.

    The author writes back

    I am sorry the reader from Los Altos was disappointed with "Emerald Greens" but I set out to write a book that featured terrific golf courses that are not on the package tour route and that can be played for less than £50 sterling. It was also intended for the non-golfing companions of golfers and for golfers who like to discover something of the country in which they are playing and who take time to "smell the flowers." That's why I describe castles and gardens and scenic drives and tell you the names of the mountains you can see while you're playing or just driving between courses. The famous links at Ballybunion, Lahinch, Royal Portrush and Portmarnock can't be played for less than £50 at any time of the year. Neither can famous parkland courses like the K Club and Druid's Glen. However, Royal County Down (rated 3rd in the British Isles) Waterville, Baltray (a real conoisseur's course and a favourite of professional golfers)The European Club ARE included in the... 5/5 R M L - See all my reviews This review is from: Emerald Greens: The Essential Guide to Golf Vacations in Ireland (Paperback) I am sorry the reader from Los Altos was disappointed with "Emerald Greens" but I set out to write a book that featured terrific golf courses that are not on the package tour route and that can be played for less than £50 sterling.

    A charming and informative work

    5/5 Andy Chapman (London England) - See all my reviews This review is from: Emerald Greens: The Essential Guide to Golf Vacations in Ireland (Paperback) It is not often that you pick up a book about golf courses and find it hard to put down. This inspirational book is well researched both in terms of the Golf courses and the local history, geography etc, but it's strength lies in the author's ability to convey her own evident passion for the subject by weaving these strands together to give an evocative picture of the places and give you a feel for the rich culture and history. I am a keen 10 handicap golfer and have visited Ireland many times over a number of years, this book really captures the charm of playing golf in Ireland. This will be the second thing I pack on my next trip - after the golf clubs of course. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2001
