Review:

"...more than just another book of pictures of great golf holes. Instead, it paints and intimate portrait of each club..." -- Forbes FYI Fall 2003

"..the ultimate golf voyeur book... elegant, revealing and rarely seen glimpses inside 12 of the most storied private golf clubs" -- Travel & Leisure Golf, September 2003

"Edgeworth & de St. Jorre know(s) how real golf clubs and their coveted courses look... classic status... five stars" -- Michael Thomas, Quest, December 2003

.. Legendary Golf Clubs of the American East, which swept the reader north from Seminole and Yeamans Hall to Pine Valley, Merion and Oakmont, the great courses of Eastern Long Island through Boston and up into New England. This second volume confirmed as fact what I had largely inferred from its predecessor: its authors were not only wise in the ways of clubs their images and words truly captured and conveyed both the special pleasures these places deliver to members and visitors and the unique feeling of place that is the overwhelmingly distinctive feature of a fine golfing venue - but they understood the game both socially and topographically, and therefore why people play it, and why people love it. --Travel & Leisure Golf Magazine, [October 2006 (pp. 100-103)]
