"Equal parts touching, wry, and hilarious." -New York Times "There is no golf trip like an Irish golf trip, and Tom Coyne has risen to meet that road. I look forward to reading this again. Pack it with your sticks." -Bill Murray "Witty and winning...A joy from start to finish." -Wall Street Journal "Like the country itself, Coyne's book is an affable ramble through a charmed land." -Chicago Tribune "A Course Called Ireland explores the history of the land being traveled and pauses for tales both tall and short, as well as, in this case, for pub songs. Coyne finds plenty of all of the above from Kilkee to Kerry, the long way. Golfers reading this book may wish they'd been walking by Coyne's side." -Boston Globe "A delightful and fun book." -Minneapolis Star-Tribune "A really good read." -The Modesto Bee
