From their humble origins on the wind-battered Scottish links, today golf courses are found throughout the world. Starting in the countries where golf is a religion – the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States – authors Fulvio Golob and Giulia Muttoni take us on a tour of the best golf courses around the world: from St. Andrews to Augusta National, from Ballybunion to Royal Melbourne, from Pebble Beach to Valderrama, finishing finally in the new Meccas of golf. The golf course becomes not only the field for a sporting event, but also a snapshot that shows the distinctive characteristics of each area. Playing a game of golf can be “a slice of life”: taking on the challenges that a course hides, understanding the psychology of your partner or opponent; it all corresponds to that which we must confront in everyday life off the golf course.
