John Wiley and Sons Ltd, September 2006, Pages: 176
What if you had six months to travel the country and play golf?
Not as a pro golfer with access to Tournament Players Club courses but simply as an enthusiastic player, Dave Marrandette searched out and played nineteen of the most obscure and endlessly enjoyable hidden courses in the United States. Off the Beaten Cart Path introduces you to the histories, idiosyncrasies, and loyal players that breathe life and character into these hidden community courses.
