Tom Coyne's A Course Called America
« on: May 25, 2021, 10:32:16 AM »
Today is the official release date.


My review here: https://www.golfwrx.com/650666/book-review-a-course-called-america/?utm_source=Front&utm_medium=Featured_Latest&utm_campaign=GolfWRX_OnSite&utm_content=unused


Would love to read from those who met him along the way, or from those who have read his previous books.


Lots to unpack in this volume, that follows Ireland and Scotland.
Coming in August 2023

I pre-ordered a copy from one of the local bookstores down here in Charlotte. Although was told that publisher was delayed getting books out to stores so won't have it for a week. Not sure if others will be delayed or if that was just this local one.

It was a sensational day at the Launch Party yesterday. The course was a little over the top but there were smiles all around.

Received my copy this evening.


Looking forward to an entertaining read, although admittedly I skipped forward to the Cobb's Creek portion and wished I had been there when he visited.

A bit disappointed in Amazon - my copy, pre-ordered last October - still isn't here. Tomorrow, I think.

I started reading A Course Called Ireland a few months ago and at about 100 pages in, ordered A Course Called Scotland and read it a week later.


Tom Coyne is a fantastic story teller whose love of all things golf, is quite evident throughout both books.

I pre-ordered few months back thru TGJ and no book yet. Loved both Ireland and Scotland. Scotland took a lot of courage to write.

Let me know if you have any specific questions for him.

Like the basement scene in Pulp Fiction, this is how that conversation goes:


YOU: You know the basement scene in Pulp Fiction?
ME: Yup, we're finished here.
YOU: Yup.


YOU: Hey, you know when Coyne's buddy...
ME: Yup, we're finished here.
YOU: Yup.

Agreed.  To me I couldn't imagine why he included it in the book. Any laddish humour was completely lost in the cold light of print.
Will never read another one of his books.
