This golf art book showcases artwork along with quotations about golf that covers topics including sportsmanship, golf humor, the pros, Scotland, and even presidential golf.

The end result includes 36 artists from countries including the US, UK, Canada, Dominican Republic, Germany, Switzerland, and Sweden. GOLF SAYINGS features a variety of golf art styles including golf photography, illustrations, collages, and paintings. A perfect gift for all golf and art lovers.

Past releases include CAT SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from the whiskered ones, HORSE SAYINGS: wit & wisdom straight from the horses mouth, DOG SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from man's best friend, and SNAPPY SAYINGS: wit & wisdom from the world's greatest minds.

This book was really, really FUN. It made me very happy reading it. As someone who used to golf, I could relate to a lot of the humor and wisdom from the quotes.

And the illustrations were amazing! Some were super creative, others were downright beautiful. They were a lovely addition to the book.

All the quotes were very well chosen and separated nicely into sections. The book is a perfect length and would make a wonderful gift for any golfer. In fact, I already gave it as a gift to my dad.

 

Bottom Line:

This book was really fun and humorous. The illustrations were amazing and the quotes were well chosen. This is a wonderful little collection of quotes and art and would make an excellent gift.
