Inspired by the Course
and the Clubhouse
By Vicky Moon
Whether just starting out as a duffer or reaching the highest level of the game as a PGA Tour pro, golfers of all kinds are united by their passion for the sport. Their desire to make golf a part of their lives extends far beyond the confines of their favorite course.
Now, Equestrian Style author Vicky Moon brings her lyrical writing touch and her expansive eye to the world of possibilities the game has inspired. With more than 500 photos and in-depth stories about the characters, the courses, the clubhouses, the traditions, the innovations, and the historical moments that make up the stuff of legend, Golf Style: Homes and Collections Inspired by the Course and the Clubhouse (Clarkson Potter, on sale December 7, 2010) is the most comprehensive book ever for lovers of the sport and its iconic style.
Golf Style takes readers into the homes and decorating minds—not just the clubhouses—of famous golfers, award-winning course designers, and renowned interior designers. With sidebars on fashion and jewelry, collecting clubs, golf art and antiques, and using golf fabrics in the home, this book is as useful as it is inspirational.
Featuring eighteen chapters (of course), Golf Style draws us into the world of golf, including:
The expansion of Virginia Tech alumni and young golf champion Drew Weaver’s home to accommodate his passion, including golf memorabilia and a growing trophy collection
PGA Tour veteran Fred Funk, who built his dream home complete with a practice putting green
The influence of LPGA stalwart Sophie Gustafson’s style of play on her golf wardrobe choices
Valuable golf art, in a chapter featuring more than a dozen notable historical and current golf artists
The world of Dorothy Draper’s decorating heir, Carleton Varney, as he weaves golf style into the legendary Greenbrier Resort’s décor using golf-themed fabrics and rugs, lamps with golf motifs, and other inspiring pieces
The annual gathering at the most famous golf site in America, Augusta National, which epitomizes the golf lifestyle in all its forms—play, food, and fashion—for The Masters
PGA Tour player Duffy Waldorf as he uses his wine cellar and his passion for golf to entertain
And much, much more
Author Vicky Moon’s travels have taken her from Palm Beach to the Greenbrier in West Virginia to the exclusive Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia to Hay-on-Wye, Wales, as she chronicled all the very best a golf lifestyle has to offer. Golf Style is destined to be a must-have collectible object and idea resource for every lover of golf.
