Golf Books #270 (The Range Bucket List: The Golf Adventure of a Lifetime)

Mar 28th
2017

From beloved golf writer James Dodson, author of Final Rounds and American Triumvirate and a two-time winner of the USGA’s Herbert Warren Wind Award for best golf book of the year, The Range Bucket List is a funny, intimate, nostalgic journey of self and sport in which the legendary author completes his golfing “bucket list.”

Many years ago, when James Dodson was thirteen years old, he wrote himself a list titled “Things to Do in Golf.” It included the golfing aspirations of a young boy who had no idea where life would take him.

A few years ago, now in his sixties and one of the most respected golf writers of all time, Dodson rediscovered the piece of paper in an old trunk. Realizing that he had yet to achieve many of his thirteen-year-old dreams, and pondering the things he’d add to the list if he wrote it today, he expanded the list into a golfing “bucket list” of the people and places he had yet to meet and see in the golf world.

In this tribute to the game he loves, Dodson takes readers on a journey around the world and into the lives of characters large and small. From an interesting lunch with Donald Trump to rounds with John Updike and intimate conversations with Arnold Palmer, from scoring a memorable thirteen on a hole at St. Andrews to revealing the real reason The Masters has always been broadcast on CBS, The Range Bucket List is simultaneously an exhilarating armchair adventure and one man’s love letter to a game that has fundamentally shaped him and his life, filled with unforgettable characters, untold history, and lots of heart.  But wait, there’s more…

Gary Player Country Club Golf Course, South Africa

Mar 26th
2017

The Gary Player Country Club in the Sun City Resort, South Africa is acknowledged as a difficult and demanding course. When construction of the Resort began in 1978, the decision was taken to build a golf course that would rival the best in the world. South Africa’s most successful professional Gary Player, was an obvious choice to route the course in what is the crater of an extinct volcano. The result was an 18-hole golf course with a par of 72 that surpassed all expectations. Every December since 1981 it has been home to the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Challenge(what used to be the Million Dollar Golf Challenge).

The course lies amidst beautiful nature and is regarded as one of the best in the world. Stretching over more than 7000 meters this typical parkland course is fairly flat, Gary Player C.C. is one of the world’s longest golf courses. All 18 holes are to be classified as difficult, with wide kikuyu grass fairways and bent greens, little rough, and many trees and streams, the many water hazards and sneaky bunkers. The magnificent views of the resort’s four hotels and lake, as well as the surrounding mountains that form part of Pilanesberg National Park, is enough to stir the blood. But wait, there’s more…
