Golf in Hollywood
Where the Stars Come Out to Play
by Robert Z. Chew and David D. Pavoni
Golf in Hollywood is an entertaining romp on the fairways of the world's favorite town. Filled with more than one hundred historical photographs, Golf in Hollywood shares the pleasures of the game, along with candid shots of some of filmland's biggest names as they take their turns at the tee. From the archives of Hollywood's most exclusive country clubs, rare photos and even rarer stories detail great moments on world-renowned courses. You'll read about Howard Hughes landing his plane on the links at Bel-Air Country Club so he wouldn't miss a date with Kate Hepburn, about Clark Gable's hole in one, about O.J. barred from the Riviera. Learn how Mysterious Montague became the star's star on the country-club circuit during Hollywood's Golden Era -- and how he had a huge impact on Kevin Costner's hit movie Tin Cup. See Jack Nicholson at the Los Angeles Police Department's Celebrity Charity Golf Tournament. Watch Will Smith take some practice swings. Get the inside story on Bill Murray, George Clooney and Sylvester Stallone and their games. Golf in Hollywood is a resounding tribute to the game and the stars who play it.
