Book Overview

Extreme Golf is a captivating journey through the world's most geographically extreme, climatically challenging, dangerous and uniquely designed courses. From the sweltering courses of the desert to the freezing ice golf championships in Greenland, and from the erotically shaped bunkers in lush surroundings in France to the harsh surfaces in Kabul, golf is clearly no longer the elite sport it once was. Today's golfers (at least the ones not wearing...

A Golfer's Fantasy

I had invited my husband's golf buddies over to celebrate his birthday and gave his this book as a gift. The golfers spent quite awhile looking at the pictures and making comments about the difficulty of the shots and wishing they were playing the courses the holes were on. It provided a lot of fun for them during the party. The pictures are great and really depict what the book is all about.

Extreme... Golf?!

I bought this as a bit of a gag gift both for my husband and another friend of ours, and I must admit, it's really a fascinating look at some of the bizarre and unusual golf courses around the globe - from a course designed around the shapes of naked women (seen from above) to a course played amidst giraffes and other safari-type wildlife, the pictures, descriptions, and history are entertaining and well done.

My Dad Loved It

Bought this for my dad for Christmas. He loved it. Read the whole book and has picked out a couple of courses he plans to visit. I would definately recommend this to anyone who loves golf. Even if you don't, the pictures are fantastic.

Gift for Dad

I don't get the review below, if you hate golf, why would you write a review on a golf book? My dad loves to golf and I understand that he probably won't be able to go to all the golf courses in this book; however, I know he'll enjoy reading and seeing the pictures of some of these extreme courses. I'm definitely going to buy this book for him.

And you already thought golfers were nuts

You just have to face it, there are some golf courses you're never going to play. Alan Shepard's "course" on the moon probably isn't going to be open for regular play for several years. And the pictures of the Kabul Golf and Country Club, complete with the caddy carrying a Soviet RPK-74 machine gun and a map of the minefields may be for you, but I think I'll pass. But the floating green on the Coeur d'Alene Resort (Idaho, and a truly beautiful place) that they move around every night looks great. Furnace Creek (Death Valley, California) looks like it might be a good place to play in mid-winter. 200 degree plus ground temperature in the summer is a little warm for me. And of course the Lucifer's Anvil course (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) is between the two so why not stop there. This book describes thirty of the more unusual golf courses you're likely to find. What a Christmas present for the golfer who has everything....
