Golf in America: A Practical Manual is a book written by James P. Lee. This title examines the growing popularity of golf at a time when the sport was still new to the United States.

Golf in America is a historical text that also examines the technical aspects of the sport. Lee's book opens with an examination of the game's origins, which the author argues have been disputed but ultimately points to its popularity in Scotland as the tipping point for the spread of the game throughout Europe and North America. Lee discusses how the sport came to be introduced in America, and details some of the nation's early golf courses. From there, Lee's discussion shifts to the more practical aspects, including sections on the rules of the game, appropriate etiquette, basic strategies, technical instruction, and a detailed glossary of technical terms. The book concludes with a detailed index of notable North American golf courses.

This book will appeal to a certain segment of the golf loving population. The historical information will be of interest to anybody who enjoys the sport and is curious about sport history, whilst the technical information provided is great for practical development.

Golf in America: A Practical Manual is ultimately a well written work that is worthy of your attention, particularly if you are new to the sport. Lee has combined a detailed history of the sport with some technical instruction that create an interesting read for any enthusiast in the sport.
