Reviews - What do customers think about Willie Park Junior: The Man Who Took Golf to the World?

Disorganized rambling  Jan 27, 2007
This book is divided into two parts: "The Life" and "The Legacy". The first part is supposed to deal with the life of Willie Park Jr.. Even though there was some decent first-hand research, the organization of this first half of the book was chaotic. The first 50 pages deal with the history of the game of golf and the history of Willie Park Jr.'s hometown of Musselburgh, Scotland. Even though I am an avid reader of golf history, I thought this information was very esoteric. Many of the chapters have more to do with the general game than with Willie Park himself. For example, there is a chapter entitled "How Willie Spoke", which describes how golfers of his era used various golfing terms as well as the derivations of words such as bogey, stymie, dormie, feathery etc.. The second half of the book describes Willie Park juniors golf architectural career. The second half is much more organized than the first half. Each short chapter in this second-half describes a golf course designed by Willie Park Jr.. Not having played these golf courses, I had a difficult time enjoying these chapters. However, for someone who is interested in the history of Scottish golf courses, these chapters appear to be fairly well researched and organized.

If you are expecting a biography of Willie Park Jr. to be the core of this book, like I was, then you will probably be disappointed. If you want to read a book that meanders through the history of the game and discusses Willie Park Jr.'s golf architecture, then this book might be for you.
