Choice Review

Published course recommendations for traveling golfers were once limited primarily to periodicals such as Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. The boom in golf popularity has, however, begun to produce a steady stream of separate guides. For golfers interested in the very best courses, Pedroli and Tiegreen's American Golfer's Guide is without equal. A truly outstanding volume, this guide provides all necessary information (location, cost, difficulty, reservation timeframes, telephone numbers, etc.), plus stunning photographs, original maps, and useful descriptions of more than 500 elite public-access golf courses. A far more extensive listing (more than 8,000 courses) can be found in Wright's Golf Courses: The Complete Guide. Naturally the entries are far more abbreviated. Although most essential information is provided, only a small portion of the entries include additional description, and even this is limited to a few lines. What is missing is any objective assessment regarding the overall quality of the courses as the listings are ^D" In conclusion, golfers interested in the ^D" public courses, and willing to pay the prices they command, need look no further than The American Golfer's Guide, which is highly recommended. For a much larger but nondiscriminating listing of courses, Golf Courses: The Complete Guide is an alternative. C. Haka Michigan State University
