Meet The Author

Ivan Morris is a legendary golf nut with a trophy to prove it. On the strength of his first book, Only Golf Spoken Here (2001), he was voted Golf Nut of the Year by the Golf Nut Society of America – the first non-American to receive this dubious accolade. Ivan was a serious, amateur championship competitor at the highest level, playing off a scratch handicap when that was a more coveted prize than it is today. When he retired from both business and competitive golf, he found a new way to satisfy his passion, becoming a prolific newspaper and magazine columnist, as well as finding the time to write seven books about a game that has consumed him.

The Irish Ladies’ Golf Union has been at the heart of Irish sporting life for 125 years. To mark this important milestone, renowned golf writer Ivan Morris has created a wide-ranging and lavishly illustrated coffee-table book celebrating the highs and lows of ladies’ golf since 1893. Packed full of facts, figures and heart-warming stories, and featuring many never-before-published photographs, this is the must-have gift book for the golf enthusiast in 2018.
