I acquired this book in 1992 as I began learning the game of golf and found it to provide a comprehensive guide to all facets of the game. It is laid out in a format which makes it easy to refer to specific topic or subjects for immediate help and guidance. The diagrams and illustrations are excellent. The range of contents is all encompassing. It is as good a bed time read as a reference book to keep in the golf bag and I would have no hesitation recommending this book especially to those readers starting out in the game and wanting to learn the jargon, the techniques and the tricks of the game.

Everything you need to know. I attended a golf clinic at Abbotsley Manor with Vivien Saunders, so bought her book as I found her advice helped my game a lot.

great guide good book
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for those new to the sport (myself included) 2 Aug. 2012
By Ian McGuire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am new to golf. Never had a lesson, never had the rules explained to me, never played a round. This book provides 3 valuable sections for the new golfer:

1. A brief history and background of the game.
2. Step-by-step, the basics of the swing. This section provides clear instruction, along with diagrams, pictures, and exercises, for developing a swing. The book goes beyond the basics, describing strategies, playing each club, playing different surfaces and conditions, and general tips for improving play.
3. Rules and etiquette.

I strongly recommend this to the golf beginner. It is a quick read that can be used as a reference as you are developing your game.

GREAT BOOK! I definitely wish I had this book before I started playing Golf. It was that pronounced, that I gave my good friend my first book because he was just starting and wanted him to have my book, then I bought this great book again. If I lose this one, I will buy another one without a second thought.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Golf handbook! - Nye Discounts Is fantastic! 22 Nov. 2013
By HonestConsumer2317 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to help re-fresh my memory of the basics about playing golf. Well I was blown away when it finally arrived. This book covers almost everything you need to help you with the basic fundamentals of golf. And the step by step pictorials are great to. The book was purchased from Nye Discounts, inc In Venice, Florida. I am so happy I purchased it from them; I saved a lot on the purchase price and it was in excellent condition as well.

I am definitely ordering from them again!
They deserve more then 5 stars!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!!!! 5 May 2016
By Matthew Steinhiser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book because it has a wealth of knowledge. Everything you can think of and then additional things you didn't think of. This isn't the kind of book you sit down to read cover to cover but more of a reference manual for your golf game.
