About the Book
It is most golfers dream to visit and play golf in the United Kingdom. This book chronicles in picture form the trials and tribulations of six golfers from Madison, Wisconsin as they play the classic open championship courses in Scotland and North West England prior to four of them returning to the US. The remaining two (1 US and 1 Welsh born) continue on their golf journey by playing on some of the lesser known, but still outstanding courses in Wales (site of the 2010 Ryder cup). The trip (courses, car hire, and accommodation) was organized by the author (firstname.lastname@example.org) and cost considerable less than the trips organized by travel companies.
The author is originally from Swansea in Wales and has resided in Madison, Wisconsin for 9 years. Through his love of golf, he met fellow golfers whose dream was to play golf in the United Kingdom for a reasonable price. This led to trips (10 to 16 days in length) across the pond to the UK in 2004, Ireland in 2006 and the UK again in 2008. The author is currently working on a trip in 2010 for the Ryder cup.
