Description

Tee off your season with 101 delightful trivia on the greatest game.

Did you know a Canadian coined the term “mulligan” — a noun meaning a “do-over” many recreational golfers take on the first tee after an errant drive? How about this: the creators of one of the greatest board games ever, Trivial Pursuit, also built a devilish golf course north of Toronto. Fact: the world’s most expensive golf course that is open to the public will set you back $1,000 to play just one round. Here’s one more: Scotland, where golf was invented in the Middle Ages, later banned the sport — not just once, but three times.

In 101 Fascinating Golf Facts, author, historian, and award-winning golf journalist David McPherson shares these stories and 97 more tales that illustrate the sport’s rich history. Golf lovers and trivia buffs alike will love learning about these interesting and fun facts.
