Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die is the sixth of Chris Santella's popular Fifty Places books (more than 250,000 copies in print), and the first to return to golf--the series' most popular subject. In this new book Santella interviews 50 luminaries in the golf world about their favorite courses and experiences. Experts range from seasoned touring professionals (Amy Alcott, Fred Funk) to journalists and photographers (James Dodson, Brian Morgan) to golf course architects (Robert von Hagge, Bob Harrison) to travel specialists (Gordon Dalgleish, Mike Lardner).
Old Country favorites like Royal Dornoch and Machrihanish in Scotland are featured, but so are venues far off the linksters' beaten path, like Nirwana, Bali, where the course runs beside rice paddies in the shadow of ancient temples, and China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where players tee off at 10,000 feet, at the base of the Himalayas. More than 40 spectacular photos capture the allure of these unforgettable golf destinations.
