“For as long as I’m immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it’s possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day.”

 

NO MAJOR SPOILERS

A collection of 9 short stories, all narrated by the ‘Oldest Member’ of the golf course, often forcefully, to younger patrons, all obviously related to life on the golf course and life off the golf course affected by events on the golf course.

I don’t play golf but after reading the hilarious anecdotes, I feel like a lesser mortal for not appreciating this sport. But let me tell you, even if you don’t know the ABC of Golf, you’ll still laugh your guts out while listening to the ‘Oldest Member’ tell you tale after tale.

My two favourite parts about the book though, had nothing to do with golf (when seen in isolation)- first was the dedication page and the second a book review/description by the Oldest Member which appears as part of a story (pics attached)

The reason why I believe you don’t really need to know what’s a handicap or a birdie to enjoy yet another masterpiece by the undisputed King of Comedy.

Without doubt, another 5/5.
