I enjoyed the book. I sort of read it one course at a time (about 5 minutes). The first part is a golf version of the 7 peaks or whatever the mountain climbers call it. These courses are featured. It is 8 courses and range from hottest to coldest to highest to lowest, hardest, etc. Some of them are a hoot.

Then the book turns to take a look at courses that are unique for some particular feature. I would judge the photography to be a little less quality compared to some of the course books I have but the book held my interst. I got a used copy for something like $4.00 total. I consider it a good deal.

I bought this as a bit of a gag gift both for my husband and another friend of ours, and I must admit, it's really a fascinating look at some of the bizarre and unusual golf courses around the globe - from a course designed around the shapes of naked women (seen from above) to a course played amidst giraffes and other safari-type wildlife, the pictures, descriptions, and history are entertaining and well done.

I had invited my husband's golf buddies over to celebrate his birthday and gave his this book as a gift. The golfers spent quite awhile looking at the pictures and making comments about the difficulty of the shots and wishing they were playing the courses the holes were on. It provided a lot of fun for them during the party. The pictures are great and really depict what the book is all about.

Some of these would be a trip. Think I better stay with the local municipal courses.

I liked the book. I got it as a gift for my husband. I'm sure we will both enjoy reading it.

I hope this was a just a novel Christmas gift and not a hint of what I should do or where I should go to play golf. Extreme golf reminds me a little of the ski jump with no snow on the jump or below. (Who would do that)?

Author Duncan Lennard is trying to get me excited about playing golf in four chapters: 1) Location, Location, Location, 2) In the Rough, 3) Courses for Concern, and 4) Golf by design.

Actually, I would be concerned about all of them.

Playing ice golf in frigid Greenland wouldn't excite me except to see how far the ball could go on a frictionless surface, but playing in the heat of Alice Springs or near an active volcano, or at the Furnace Creek resort doesn't thrill me. I also do not play golf, or anything for that matter, where oxygen masks are required, the mule is my golf cart, or where an AK-47 carrying bodyguard is required in Afghanistan. I don't do Dubai desert golf either.

Of course, the Macon la Salle Golf Club in France sounds interesting. The designer managed to get the human form on each of the 18 holes from feet with toes being sand traps to human genitalia and secondary sexual organs. How French!

The Coeur d'Alene Resort in Idaho is more civilized and more my cup of tea for my golden years. One par three is out in the water and was built from composite materials weighing in at 5 million lbs. A ferry takes you out to the green (assuming your ball didn't land in the water). And just to show how sadistic they can be, they move the green every night.

Duncan Lennard's book is beautifully illustrated with color photograph of which many are aerial shots particularly in the case of the human form. There are also smiling photographs of psycho golfers into their own loss of self-esteem and life expectancy.

If I get to go to any one, I'll stick with the French-sounding places.

Fore! Five! Six! Sixteen!
You just have to face it, there are some golf courses you're never going to play. Alan Shepard's "course" on the moon probably isn't going to be open for regular play for several years. And the pictures of the Kabul Golf and Country Club, complete with the caddy carrying a Soviet RPK-74 machine gun and a map of the minefields may be for you, but I think I'll pass. But the floating green on the Coeur d'Alene Resort (Idaho, and a truly beautiful place) that they move around every night looks great. Furnace Creek (Death Valley, California) looks like it might be a good place to play in mid-winter. 200 degree plus ground temperature in the summer is a little warm for me. And of course the Lucifer's Anvil course (Black Rock Desert, Nevada) is between the two so why not stop there.

This book describes thirty of the more unusual golf courses you're likely to find. What a Christmas present for the golfer who has everything....
