The Future of Golf reveals how the sport has been kidnapped by equipment manufacturers and knowingly deregulated by its governing bodies. A mix of commentary, analysis, and essays, the book chronicles the misguided strategies made by the once-respected United States Golf Association, showing how the momentum from Tiger Woods’s popularity is being squandered by manipulative manufacturers and celebrity worship. Author George Shackelford urges the USGA to re-shoulder its responsibilities to the game while suggesting how the PGA Tour can restore excitement to its championships. He offers solutions for making golf fun, affordable and exciting again by emphasizing course design elements, common sense ideals, and tradition-based values.
Golf. What i it? What was it? What happened to it?

If you ponder those questions in the darkness of night, this book is for you.

To me, the problem stems from the issue of handicaps and the counting of strokes..just hit the ball! Get it in the hole. Have a beer, and do it again.

Read this book....

If you a rich kid, country club membership and change your clubs for the latest and greatest every year--you won't get it. Commercialism has got ya' by the Titleist balls. You're a victim not a golfer.

If you're playing with the same clubs your daddy or grandpa gave ya-and enjoy the game--this is for you.

Play well...drink well, and lay it up!
I enjoyed reading the book. I must say that I tend to agree with the author that the race for improved equipment is ruining the sport. I read that and say that but still enjoy seeing some drive a 330 yard par 4. He right about older courses becoming less of a challenge.
Shackelford's book is well written and a great read. I would highly recommend this book for anyone that has an interest in golf history. This is not a book I would recommend to the casual golfer.
Finally someone is saying exactly what needs to be said about the current state of golf. "The Future of Golf" opened my eyes to the problems the game is now facing; problems that so many are trying to cover up. As a golf lover I am horrified at the direction the game is going and this book nailed what these problems are, and what needs to be done to fix them.

This is probably Shackelford's best work, as well as his most important, and I'm afraid it will not be recognized as such because of its controversial nature. If this book does not reach an enormous audience it will be an absolute tragedy. I urge everyone who cares about the game of golf and our great courses to read "The Future of Golf". One way or another I am going to get a copy into the hands of every golfer I know. We must start wherever we can and take back the game of golf before it's too late.
This is nothing less than the most important book on the game of golf now in print. It is the most important golf book of the last 25 years, and is probably the most important golf book since the writing of C. B. Macdonald, Bernard Darwin and even Bob Jones.

It is not an elegant book; others, including Shackelford himself have written books that are far more beautiful in terms of lavish publications. But the comparisons that have been made between this book and Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" are apt. This book is a call to arms in the golf technology arms race.

These are direct, pithy, clear-eyed essays that will provoke any reader to challenge about half of what is becoming the accepted state of affairs in the world of golf.

You cannot be a serious-minded student of the game of golf in the 21st Century without reading, and indeed studying, this book.
If you, like me, are concerned about what is happening to golf and feel that technology has gone too far, then this book is a "Must".
