School Library Journal Review

Gr 4 Up-Using the familiar series format, Simmons plainly and succinctly describes everything young golfers need to know. The predominant theme seems to be that even if you do not aspire to professional status, "everyone who plays golf can enjoy its challenges and rewards." Pros are pictured throughout, but the vast majority of the excellent photographs feature preteens and young adults. A brief history of the game is followed by detailed explanations of the course, equipment, scoring, rules, grip, swing, shots, and more. Particularly impressive is the inclusion of topics such as sun protection, etiquette, and warm-up exercises. The only disappointment is the negligible coverage of women's golf. Nevertheless, this is an attractive addition to sports collections.-Kate Kohlbeck, Randall School, Waukesha, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
