Summer Place
A Golf Professional's Memoir
by Patrick Little

Summer Place is an overt, passionate view of the golf industry, traced through the writings of a Canadian golf professional during the late twentieth century. It’s a story a young golfer’s devout dream of one day becoming a club pro, aspirations eventually annulled through the injustice of industry. Written in journalistic expression, Summer Place shares insight into golf swing theory, industry background, golf course architecture and the extraordinary woman in his life. Interpretations glimpsed through past portals and those met along his journey. In an innocent quest, it also aspires to understand the inner core of golf’s mystique. En route however, it affectionately attempts to bridge the gap between golf AND life while examining the contamination of politics. Summer Place is fondly dedicated. And while it slices out lessons learned along the fairways of life, it also asks readers to stand back and assess, audit, (and perhaps appreciate) pasts. Pasts of music before rap and heavy metal. Of political pasts before Trump and echoes of golf…as it too was!
