Format: Paperback
David Feherty's comic novel about the loveable inhabitants of the Scrought's Wood Golf Club, and their raunchy adventures on and off the links is a pretty funny story, with a few laugh-out-loud moments sprinkled in amongst piles of bathroom humor.
The writing is okay, though it leaves something to be desired, and even the most die-hard Feherty fan will grow weary of the barrage of bathroom jokes. Do we really need to know that a caddy pooped his pants in an airplane once (although the subsequent episode involving that caddy and a red sweatshirt is one of the funnier moments in the book)?
I laughed quite a bit at this book, and even if it was a little heavy-handed with the toilet humor, it has some absolutely hilarious moments. If you like golf and David Feherty's sense of humor, then you'll enjoy this book.

Feherty is good at one-liners, but a piece of fiction?.. NO!
There are far too many characters here, many of them with more than one name, as first names, last names, and nicknames appear at random. After the first couple of chapters, I thought this funny story had potential, but the more pages I turned, the more disappointed I became.
Stay with the CBS microphone, David.

Forget about the title of this review - golf is just the backdrop for this hilarious book! It would have been just as funny on the shuffle board courts of south Florida. (Hey, there's an idea!) Try as I might to restrain myself to keep from waking my sleeping kids, I laughed out loud about every five minutes as I read A Nasty Bit of Rough! The characters were comical, the dialogue was knee-slapping funny and the story moved at a great pace. My only hope for Christmas this year is that Mr. Feherty isn't done with this oddball crew!

David Feherty's fiction book is a book I found enjoyable when I first read it, at least a year ago. I picked it up again, and this time had time to finish it (origianlly it was from the library). The antics of Uncle Dickie and his fight against the evil Scottish clan are some of the greatest I've ever read, which may not seem like a lot from me, but I read a lot. This book is perhaps the greatest golf book of its time. If you enjoy comedy or golf, this is a book for you. I also would like to reccomend "Bermuda Grass" by Keith Miles and "The Putt at the End of The World", by various authors.

This story is crazy, bizarre, absolutely unbelievable. And its possibly the funniest book I have ever read. I woke my wife up with belly laughs and had commuters looking at me with disbelief as I roared with laughter on my train. Just thinking of this book puts a smile on my face. A must for all golfers!!!

I don't even like golf, but I sure liked this book. It's fun, it's silly, a little bawdy... everything I look for in a light read. Amazing that this is his first novel! Also recommended - 'Perfect I'm Not: Boomer On Beer, Brawls, Backaches And Baseball' - 'No One's Even Bleeding'

In my opinion, David Feherty is one of the best golf announcers working the circuit. I also like the columns that he writes for Golf Magazine, so I would have been surprised if I disliked his first fiction novel.
I was surprised at how much I liked this book. The characters, although outrageous and over the top, are very sympathetic and you want to see them succeed, even though you know that both they and a place like Scrought's Wood could never exist in the real world.

David Feherty knows golf and can write about it in a very humorous way. The stories brought tears to my eyes I was laughing so hard.
