An Invitation to the Reader

Welcome to The Hearthstone Review, dedicated to presenting a moderately objective and lively appraisal of literary works concerning the game of golf.

The category of golf-related titles seems at times to out pace not only the growth of the game but even our devotion to it, if that's possible. Keeping up with the torrent of new books, second only perhaps to the number of practice aids, could cut into one's time for golf - and we can't have that.

Those interested in pursuing the richness of creative writing beyond the scorecard are invited to explore a fair and reasoned "read" of available titles. An unbiased opinion would be too much to ask, but you'll have the considered once-over from a humble caddie pacing off yardage along golf's literary fairways, with occasional forays into the rough.

Thanking you in advance for your interest,

Yours sincerely,

J.W. Apfelbaum
