Book Review: Confessions of a Golfaholic - A Guide to Playing America's Top 100 Public Golf Courses

American Golfer

 

Like most avid golfers, I’m interested in the “Best of ...” lists published by major golf magazines. Unlike most golfers, my opinion of courses currently has an influence on several of these lists, as I am a course rater. It’s a very cool gig for someone who loves the game and is interested in course architecture

How about a cooler gig - like playing each Top 100 course (according to GOLF Magazine’s2010 rankings) and writing a book about the experience? Paul Laubach did just that.

In what can only be considered a quick (if not envious) read for golf fans, “Confessions of a Golfaholic - A Guide to Playing America’s Top 100 Public Golf Courses” chronicles Laubach’s journey - from conception to completion.
