Because of its island status, the British shoreline enjoys more traditional coastal golf courses than anywhere in world.
When Stephen Cartmell set himself the challenge of finding and testing eighteen of the most outstanding links courses in Britain, he decided that they had to meet a number of important criteria - the most significant of which was that the sea had to be visible from the course and, preferably, should present a physical hazard to any wayward shots.
Stephen Cartmell provides hilarious descriptions of these sea-flanked courses, not to mention the characters he meets on his journey around the British coastline in this perfect guide for those tempted to play Golf on the Edge.

A wonderfully informative and witty guide to Britain's traditional coastal links courses.From the Back Cover:
The British shoreline enjoys more traditional coastal golf courses than anywhere in world. Brutal yet blissful; fearsome yet fulfilling, these seaside links courses present players of every standard with an intoxicating mix of undiluted pain and pure enjoyment.
When Stephen Cartmell set himself the challenge of finding and testing eighteen of the most outstanding links courses in Britain, he decided that they had to meet a number of criteria, the most important of which was that the sea had to be visible from the course. There's nothing like salt in the air, or the sound of crashing waves breaking on the shore, to make a golfer quiver with delight or fear. Committed links players prefer their golf to be tough and unpretentious. Stepping onto the first tee, they are prepared to do more than test their golfing skills. They will be ready to do battle with nature.
Packed with fascinating detail, and often hilarious anecdotes, this is the perfect guide to some of the most beautiful sea-flanked courses in Britain. It also whets the appetite for the sublime pleasures that lie in store for anyone tempted to play golf on the edge.
