Longtime BJT golf columnist Bradley S. Klein takes “a journey across the landscapes of modern golf” in his latest book, Wide Open Fairways. According to University of Nebraska Press, the publisher, the book discusses how today’s courses “inspire us, stimulate our senses and reveal the special nature of particular places” and offers an “absorbing view of golf courses as cultural markers, linking the game to larger issues of land use, ecology, design and imagination.”
Besides writing for this magazine, Klein serves as architecture editor of Golfweek and runs its national golf-course rating system. His previous books include Discovering Donald Ross: The Architect and His Golf Courses and Rough Meditations: From Tour Caddie to Golf Course Critic: An Insider’s Look at the Game.

“It is relatively easy to be thankful for the most important and obvious parts of life…but truly happy people find ways to give thanks for the little, insignificant trifles…the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a song that reminds you of when you were a kid. ”

-Social scientist and musician Arthur C. Brooks
