“The rich history of golf in the United States is greatly owed to public golf which has produced the majority of America’s avid golfers. The game’s full libretto of triumph, passion, error, comedy and comradeship is played out daily upon the affordable grounds of the public venue. Papago Park is a classic example of all that’s good about municipal golf and Will Godfrey’s wonderful book captures the story, the humanism and the feel of Papago’s past, present and future. Great reading for any lover of the game.”Peter Longo PGA Life Member AND golf historian
