Who but P.G. Wodehouse could have extracted high comedy from the most noble and ancient game of golf? And who else could have combined this comedy with a real appreciation of the game, drawn from personal experience? Wodehouse's brilliant but human brand of humor is perfectly suited to these stories of love, rivalry, revenge, and fulfillment on the links.
While the Oldest Member sits in the clubhouse quoting Marcus Aurelius on patience and wisdom, outside on the green the fiercest human passions burn. All kinds of human life are here, from the cocky professional Sandy McHoots to the shy Ramsden Waters, whose only consolation is golf. Even golf-haters will not be able to resist stories that so perfectly blend physical farce with verbal wit and a gallery of unforgettable characters.
"[Wodehouse is] a brilliantly funny writer - perhaps the most consistently funny the English language has yet produced." (
The Times, London)
"Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever." (Douglas Adams)

I prefer the stories read by Jonathon Cecil
Only the narrator, the stories are very entertaining.
All of the stories are very well written. There is no author of the genre to compare with P G Wodehouse.
The narrator sounds too pompous.
I prefer the delivery of Jonathon Cecil.
