It has been many years since the last book on golfing in Kenya was written. Comprehensive in its coverage, this guide covers all aspects of golfing in Kenya. It has been written with the visiting golfer in mind, but is nonetheless candid and includes much local humour and club lore. Cartoons, area and course maps and photographs in full colour, and descriptions of area side-trips and diversions are also included. Background information on the history of the sport, and planning a golfing safari are given. Five chapters cover the five sections of the country into which the golf courses have been grouped, each section giving an area map and club fact files, and an overview of play for the course. The final part of the book gives information about getting about, accommodation, and other useful travel information.
