9781453536582: Courses Called Crackers: One Golfer's U.K. Quest

"A part-time golf writer gets the royal treatment from a host of fine U.K. clubs
in exchange for his implied promise to sing their courses' glories in this memoir
that meshes a Finegan-like travelogue with the poignancy of Plimpton's
Bogey Man and the vinegar of Doak's Confidential Guide. Traveling solo,
this fifty-something Yank has his vigor roundly tested by a quest to play 36
courses. And, along the way -- in a wholly honest account -- the reader gets
taken inside the golfer's mind when encountering the alluring yet treacherous
terrain at one great links after another, along with engaging the natives who
call these courses "Crackers.""

About the Author:

Founder and editor of golf 's first online literary magazine, R.N.A. Smith now adds the golfing memoir to his panoply of publications focused on our game. Author of nearly ninety golf short stories -- the cream of which have been gathered into two books -- as well as links poetry, screenplays, commentaries, and reportage, R.N.A. plans next to complete a promised volume of short works entitled Holes Still to Play while also attempting to ace the most hazard-strewn of golf 's literary forms, the novel. Should that get done, his quest to publish more than a million words on golf may well have been achieved.
