Style is a joyous celebration of the
history, traditions, personalities, innovations, challenges, and verdant
beauty associated with the venerated game. Readers will discover a limitless
source of inspiration and ideas for anyone, duffer or pro, who wants
to make the sport a part of their life both on and off the fairways.
Golf is more than just a sport. It is an incomparable source of camaraderie,
a test of one's equanimity, and a reminder of the sheer joy of playing
a simple game-in concept, at least-in the fresh air. Like any pursuit
that people grow to love, it just won't stay put. Its allure extends
far beyond the course, turning up in the ways we decorate and in the
clothes we wear, in our art and literature, in the memories that delight
us and in the anticipation we feel for pleasant outings to come.
In Golf Style, Vicky Moon turns her expansive eye to every aspect of
the lifestyle that the game has inspired. In 18 (of course) chapters,
she takes us on an excursion through all things golf. From legendary
Meccas at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, Celtic Manor in Cardiff,
Wales, and Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin, here are the courses
and clubhouses that have played host to the game through history, and
whose luxury and beauty inspire us long after the back nine is over.
We get to peek inside the golf-inflected residences of celebrated golfers
such as Jonathan Byrd, Denis Watson, Duffy Waldorf, Fred Funk, and Sophie
Gustafson; the creative minds of award-winning course designer Rees
Jones and country club, resort decorator Carlton Varney, and British
golfer Ian Poulter, whose own line of golf garb brings new meaning to
color on the fairways. We see golf-themed art and antique collections,
learn about state-of-the-art turbo-charged drivers, get a taste of the
delicious dinners served at the Masters, recall favorite films in which
golf is the real star, and admire shining trophies and stunning jewelry
inspired by the game.
