Who but P. G. Wodehouse could have extracted high comedy from the most noble and ancient game of golf? And who else could have combined this comedy with a real appreciation of the game, drawn from personal experience? Wodehouse’s brilliant but human brand of humor is perfectly suited to these stories of love, rivalry, revenge, and fulfillment on the links.

While the Oldest Member sits in the clubhouse quoting Marcus Aurelius on patience and wisdom, outside on the green the fiercest human passions burn. All kinds of human life are here, from the cocky professional Sandy McHoots to the shy Ramsden Waters, whose only consolation is golf. And then, of course, there is the young, handsome Cuthbert Banks, who—plus four on the Wood Hills links—cannot seem to win the affections of the girl who has won his heart. Even golf haters will not be able to resist these ten stories that so perfectly blend physical farce with verbal wit and a gallery of unforgettable characters.

Listener Opinions

    " If you are a golfer it will tickle your funny bone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Erma Odrach | 2/19/2014

    " An avid golfer friend of mine passed this Wodehouse book on to me. Am not into golfing but I thought I'd give it a try. It's a collection of funny and witty stories (written in 1924)that deal with men and their love for women and golf. There's a lot of bumbling going on, cluelessness, rivalry, conspiring, much in the Wodehouse fashion. I'm sure a lot of golfing jokes went right past me though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carolyn | 2/18/2014

    " A collection of short stories about golf as related to young players by the Oldest Member -- very funny, biting satire leveled against the overly-avid golfer and yet ultimately sweet tales of life and relationships. First Wodehouse I've read, but there will be more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Charlotte Cooper | 2/18/2014

    " Amusing short stories about the world of golf. Normally read one story after I've finished a book. Thoroughly enjoyable. "
