Gone are the days when golf was a quaint and old-fashioned pastime. Back on the Olympic program since 2016, the sport has had a rebirth like none other, with professionals like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy reinvigorating the course, and celebrities from Justin Timberlake to Bill Murray perfecting their backswing.

This volume introduces the most exclusive, sophisticated, and spectacular golf resorts in the world. These are golfing holiday destinations that score not only with sophisticated layouts in charming landscapes ? whether against alpine mountain scenery or tropical sandy beaches ? but also with wonderful rooms, outstanding food, and comprehensive wellness offers. Within this perfect gift for golfers, each prestigious golf resort is presented with an expert review, covering its benefits on and off the fairways and greens. The sections on resorts are interspersed with background information and amusing anecdotes, capturing the history and contemporary world of golfing. Because as all good golfers know, this is more than a club-and-ball sport, it is a lifestyle. Text in English and German.
