About the BookGolf clubs, the length and breadth of the UK, are hotbeds for debate. Go into any clubhouse on a Saturday afternoon and you'll find people arguing the virtues of links golf over parkland or Stableford over medal play. Every time a golf magazine produces a top 100 courses list, golfers throughout Britain begin quarrelling about its inclusions and omissions. In "Great Golf Debates", Jeremy Ellwood and Fergus Bisset look at forty of golf's most disputed issues from the serious to the more light-hearted, examining them from opposing viewpoints in an entertaining yet informed manner.From 'Tiger Woods vs Jack Nicklaus' to 'Pull carts vs Carry bags' they provide convincing arguments to give supporters of both camps some added ammunition, appealing directly to every British golfer's argumentative nature. Writers for "Golf Monthly", Ellwood and Bisset's 'head-to-head' style debate features regularly in the magazine and has been a fabulous success in generating considerable interest both in letters to the magazine and debate on the "Golf Monthly" website where a poll is conducted.
The section's popularity gives clear indication there are many issues that split opinion between Britain's golfers and that this book seeks to address a selection of the most contentious.
