Author(s): Gary Player
In the international community of golf, players have over 35,000 golf courses to choose from. Within that number however, there is an elite group of courses that sit above the rest. Whether they sit in some of the most beautiful corners of the world or nurtured some of the sport's first professionals, there is a handful of courses that every golfer must make a pilgrimage to. "The Golfer's Bucket List" is a literary tour of this exclusive group of layouts from the hollow, tree-lined fairways of Augusta National, home of the US Masters, to the cradle of the game; Scotland's historic St. Andrews links course. Let one of golf's most legendary athletes, Gary Player; talk you through every hole of every course with the experience he accumulated on his way to nine major championship victories. Complimented by breathtaking photography, "The Golfer's Bucket List" is your complete guide to those courses you must tee off before you 'kick the bucket'.
Gary Player, one of golf's all-time great players, continues to perform with the best on the golf circuit in his sixties, at the same time as running his global business, whose Gary Player Design Company has completed over 100 courses in 14 countries. His many books include The Complete Golfer's Handbook (New Holland, 1999), co-authored by Chris Whales and Duncan Cruickshank - sports journalists and keen golfers based in South Africa - who have teamed up again with Player on Top Golf Courses of the World.
