Product Description

Review

James Dodson author of "Final Rounds"The wee sea-blown village of Dornoch is a special, if somewhat cloistered, holy place of golf that is known by many but probably truly understood by only a few. With "A Season in Dornoch," Lorne Rubenstein, one of golf's gifted modern writers, has done every fan of the game a great and entertaining service by taking us with him on a magical mystery tour of Royal Dornoch's surprising history and rich social lore, revealing far more than the area's soulful landscape and unforgettable local characters. Part sporting travelogue, part memoir of a summer magnificently spent, this tale of discovery will linger in the mind of any lover of the auld sod long after it's finished -- taken down and savored, winter after winter (at least by me) for years to come.

About the Author

Lorne Rubenstein has written a golf column for Golf and Mail since 1980. He is the author of many books and has won the National Magazine Award in Canada and three first-place awards from the Golf Writers Association of America. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
at first I wondered if I had made a good buy. Quickly settled in to the book.full of charm and genuine warmth and kindness for the town, the golf course and its surrounds.Just as the author showed great sadness in leaving Dornoch, I also had equal sadness when the book came to a close. A great book for all true lovers of the game and who realise there is more to it than just your score. If nothing else, it will surely make you want to visit Dornoch, or, as in my case revisit.

Well written book, which educates the reader of the history of this charming town and it's surrounding area.

Particularly interesting if you are an avid golfer.
