Marty Peck writes about what it was like to literally grow up on a golf course, with behind-the-scenes escapades right out of a caddy shack movie. Stories from three generations of keepers of the greens blend coming of age and fatherhood themes with golf history and plenty of humorous and lifelong lessons. Hundreds of images depict the evolution of the historic course, beginning with its horse-drawn construction one-hundred years ago from the Post cereal family summer estate. Read about the lives of the humble caretakers, tales of slot-machine con artists, ravaging fires and floods, and national scandals. Share the Peck family stories as they watched the likes of Walter Hagan, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer play in their back yard. You will appreciate golf course history and have a laugh or two in the process.
