Marrandette, Dave

Off The Beaten Cart Path

Uncovering the Stories of America`s Little Known, but Beloved, Golf Courses

€ 20.95

From tiny country clubs tucked in the hills to dirt links dropped next to highways, thousands of obscure golf courses decorate the United States, and each one has a family of golfers who affectionately claim it as their own. In one enriching six month period, Dave Marrandette navigated his motor home over 9,000 miles of interstate highways and back roads to find these gems. Off the Beaten Cart Path, the result of Dave s research, shares nineteen of the most enjoyable hidden courses Dave found—including one that runs through the infield of a horse track!

Through his insightful exploration of America s unsung links, Dave puts your finger on the pulse of the game, which beats in these community courses. With the thoughtful eye of an aficionado, Dave recounts spirited stories about the courses distinctive owners, towns, and histories, making each one come alive for you the same way they did for him. He regales you with tales about:

  • The clubhouse in Texas that sells old persimmon woods out of a barrel for a couple dollars and always has the golf tournaments on a small television
  • John Stewart, who received a marker in memoriam on the Rio Mimbres Golf Course that states, "This is the only tree I never hit" (the tree was planted after his passing)
  • The town whose entire population is employed by Winnebago Industries, Inc.

Off the Beaten Cart Path is for every golf fanatic who can appreciate salt of the earth courses that make up the American backbone of this great sport.
