This entertaining anthology provides a comprehensive history of golf detective novels and golf murder mysteries. For ten decades, readers have discovered and enjoyed these murder mysteries set in the world of golf. The creativity and skills of the authors, as represented here by plot summaries, have provided many hours of delightful mystery reading for golfers and non-golfers alike.
