Because of its island status, the British shoreline enjoys more traditional coastal golf courses than anywhere in world. When Stephen Cartmell set himself the challenge of finding and testing eighteen of the most outstanding links courses in Britain, he decided that they had to meet a number of important criteria - the most significant of which was that the sea had to be visible from the course and, preferably, should present a physical hazard to any wayward shots. Stephen Cartmell provides hilarious descriptions of these sea-flanked courses, not to mention the characters he meets on his journey around the British coastline in this perfect guide for those tempted to play golf on the edge.
