レビュー

"[Kennedy] has written a fascinating history of African-American golfers."--Stan Hochman, Philadelphia Daily News "[Kennedy] paints with great detail a picture of how hard it was for African Americans trying to play their way onto the PGA Tour."--John Schumacher, Sacramento Bee "A Course of Their Own is a compelling read, a tough read, an enlightening read. And perhaps most of all, it is an important read for anyone who knows and loves the game of golf."--John Steinbreder, Golfweek

An inspiring story 2000/7/22
投稿者 Randall C. Voorhees - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
After you read this book you may be angry or you may be happy, but you will definitely be inspired. The author has written a long overdue book about the lives and struggles of the many African American professional golfers who toiled and struggled--largely in obscurity--under the thumb of racism before cracking golf's color barrier. Just about every sports fan in America knows about Jackie Robinson and his heroic deeds, but few know names such as Bill Spiller and Teddy Rhodes. Pity. This book may finally engender the respect and compassion long denied the black golfers who paved the way for Tiger Woods, who today is the world's most popular athlete. A hearty thumbs up for this one!

Dear author, thank you . . . 2000/10/24

This is truly a long-overdue book. This was received as a birthday gift to my husband and I could not resist. Very well written and is a wonderful and tragic chronicle of America's history in human relations. Yes, we are better today. We are reminded of the wonders of all people and how much we have to learn from eachother. When will we have the ability to evaluate skill and talent beyond skin color or accent? This book reminds us to appreciate eachother. This should be required reading in our junior high schools as part of American history/social studies.

A Good Read 2002/1/4
投稿者 Ralph C. Watkins - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
This is a good introduction to the history of African Americans and their quest to enter the professional ranks / PGA. It needs to be read with Charlie Sifford's book which tells you the real deal. Kennedy really can't express the pain of black golfers, he gets close but the book is more of an overview. Key and critical details are left out of the book. I can't over emphasize how important it is for you to read Charlie Sifford's, Just Let Me Play as well as Calvin Sinnette's, Forbidden Fairways.
A Course of Their Own: A Review 2009/3/16

John Kennedy's account of the history of African-Americans in golf paints a picture that is difficult look at. The book is gripping--no pun interned--and gives a great overview of the subject.

Kennedy's prose is sometimes hard to follow, but he relies heavily on interviews from the players. Thus, you really get to know the voice of the players. This I found to be essential to my understanding of the issues these players faced. Thus, Kennedy's style is that of a historical fiction writer. Good stuff.

The big picture: Kennedy's book is the definitive history. There are other books on the subject, but this one is a good starting place for information about one of the most publicly hidden tales of segregation in the history of our country. The book is well documented--provides a great works cited section and bibliography. A good read for casual readers as well as professionals doing research on the subject.
