New Book, "The Culture of Golf - Isn't it just a Game?" by Larry Hirsh

"The Culture of Golf – Isn’t It Just a Game? is a unique and comprehensive study, written in a way that is easy to understand and covers a huge range of issues that are intertwined. He offers explanation of the current tate of the game and how it is evolving, as well as insights on what could be done to improve it. His focus is not equipment, rules or course conditions, but as the title states, it is on the culture of golf.

Social attitudes are powerful forces, and it seems outside special nterest groups are always searching for another target of perceived injustice to “culturally reform,” to perhaps include golf. The best protection to preserve what we love about golf is to be prepared to make changes when justified but defend against unfounded or false accusations with real information. Granted it is a complex topic composed of many subcultures or points of view, but there is virtually no part of the sport that Larry overlooks in both a historical and future context. Even if you don’t fully agree with Larry’s views, at least you will be giving them some thought and seeing a bigger picture of golf, and that alone has merit. Being sensitive to golf related topics that may need improving is a major first step."
