Book Description

March 1 2001
Forget the plaid pants, the white-fringed shoes, the silly caps -- the game of golf has come a long way! And it's experiencing unprecedented popularity with kids. This informative book introduces them to the basics of golf, as well as to the origins and history of the game, golf equipment and etiquette, types of courses, and stars of the past, present and future. This is not simply a how-to book, but an engaging and informative look at an increasingly kid-friendly sport. The comprehensive format will appeal to young golfers just starting out and to those already familiar with the game.

Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-Youngsters will find this title helpful for understanding the game or learning to play it. The well-organized, oversized book provides a quick history of the sport, followed by short chapters on equipment, swings, rules, and golf courses. The visually attractive presentation gives advice on warm-ups, professional tips, information about tournaments, and great and funny moments of golf. The clear, interesting, and engaging text includes "amazing" and "strange but true" facts. The attractive, full-color photographs of children and famous golfers executing the skills add to the book's utility as do the strategically placed diagrams. This title is far simpler than Bruce Curtis and Jay Morelli's Beginning Golf (Sterling, 2000) or Mike Adams and T. J. Tomasi's Play Golf for Juniors (Firefly, 2000).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected April 1 2004
Format:Paperback
This is a very basic book and does not go into any detail. Might be okay for a 7 or 8 year old that knows nothing about golf. There is a very short chapter that touches on the rules of golf and also one on etiquette but these barely scratch the surface. The book is not for a child that has already started playing golf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book June 7 2013
By Grandma - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is listed as being for 8-13 year olds, but my 5 1/2 year old grandson is really into golf, and he absolutely loved it. It contains information on course etiquette, hints on what clubs to use, playing stance, stories about many golf masters, and interesting "strange but true" tidbits of happenings on the golf course, such as an earthquake moving a ball into a hole for an "ace." Great book for kids, with useful information and interesting stories.
