An excellent little book, explaining the most commonly encountered rules of golf in a very readable and enjoyable way. The book follows the progress of two friends playing nine holes, and at each hole one or other of them encounters some problem where the relevant rule is then explained. I tried making sense of the rules themselves, but they are heavy going; this book is really easy to read and understand. And knowledge of the rules actually makes playing the game more enjoyable! My favourite bit in the book is where one player asks the other what club he would recommend for his next shot; "Imagine his surprise when David's reply was that John had lost the hole because he had just breached Rule 8(1)..."
Easy golf rules - yes they do exist! This book is different from the norm, it actually follows two golfers round the course putting them in a position where they need to check a rule. Ideal for beginners as it is easy to read and follow. Basic rules but very straight forward. Recommended.
I found this book to be rather refreshing after the very dry golf rules books that are available. Instead of listing the rules in cronological order, we follow 2 players round a course and the various pitfalls they come across. I would recomend this book for the beginner golfer - you can even pick up a few ideas as to how one should approach playing a round.
