Greetings Golfers,

If you’re in Minnesota … you aren’t playing golf. At least not on a golf course.

Besides playing, there are other ways to get your golf fix if you’re cooped-up indoors: movies and books.

Here’s a pretty standard list of good golf movies. Just because it’s pretty typical doesn’t mean it’s a bad list. You’ve probably seen most of them … but they’re all fun to watch again. Here they are – no review or comments:

  • “The Greatest Game Ever Played”
  • “The Caddy”
  • “The Legend of Bagger Vance”
  • “Follow the Sun”
  • “Caddyshack”
  • “Dead Solid Perfect”
  • “Seven Days in Utopia”
  • “Happy Gilmore”
  • “Bobby Jones: The Perfect Stroke”
  • “Pat & Mike”
  • “Tin Cup”
  • “Tommy’s Honor”
  • “Miracle on the 17th Green”

It’s certainly not an all encompassing list … but it’s a pretty good variety of dramatic, funny, biographical, historic, and magical.

Speaking of magical … my list of golf books starts off with a magical, mystical look at golf:

  • “Golf in the Kingdom”
  • “The Match”
  • “A Good Walk Spoiled”
  • “A Course Called Ireland”
  • “The Dogged Victims of Inexorable Fate”
  • “Down the Fairway”
  • “Doctor Golf”
  • “Who’s Your Caddy”
  • “The Complete Golfer”
  • “Final Rounds”
  • “Scotland’s Gift – Golf”
  • “Golf Between Two Wars”

Hopefully, you can get some fresh air and exercise … even without playing golf. And while you’re indoors … you’ll have books and movies to keep your golf juices flowing.

Take care,
