9780307460233: Golf Style: Homes and Collections Inspired by the Course and the Clubhouse

Golf is more than just a sport. It is an incomparable source of  camaraderie, a test of one’s equanimity, and a reminder of the sheer joy of playing a simple game—in concept, at least—in the fresh air. Like any pursuit that people grow to love, it just won’t stay put. Its allure extends far beyond the course, turning up in the ways we decorate and in the clothes we wear, in our art and literature, in the memories that delight us, and in the anticipation we feel for pleasant outings to come.
  
In Golf Style, Vicky Moon turns her expansive eye to every aspect of the lifestyle that the game has inspired. In eighteen (of course) chapters, she takes us on an excursion through all things golf. From legendary meccas at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia to Celtic Manor in Cardiff, Wales, to Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, here are the courses and clubhouses that have played host to the game throughout history and whose luxury and beauty inspire us long after the back nine is over. We get to peek inside the golf-inflected residences of celebrated golfers such as Jonathan Byrd, Denis Watson, Duffy Waldorf, Fred Funk, and Sophie Gustafson; and the creative minds of award-winning course designer Rees Jones, country club and resort decorator Carleton Varney, and British golfer Ian Poulter, whose own line of golf garb brings new meaning to color on the fairways. We see golf-themed art and antiques collections, learn about state-of-the-art turbo-charged drivers, get a taste of the delicious dinners served at the Masters, recall favorite films in which golf is the real star, and admire shining trophies and stunning jewelry inspired by the game.
