Product Details


“Engrossing . . . [Keiser’s] accounts of sometimes contentious debates about particular course designs with the world-class talents he hired to work on his projects—Tom Doak, Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw especially—serve as a kind of primer in classic golf architecture. . . . By the end of the book, one begins to suspect that Mr. Keiser’s ability to tolerate and even encourage opposing points of view is at the heart of his success.”—John Paul Newport, The Wall Street Journal

“Mike’s influence on golf courses and the game has simply been remarkable. He’s led a movement to showcase the sheer joy of playing bouncy, sandy, linksy – and FUN! – golf courses. He will have indeed left the game far better than he found it!”—Mike Davis, former CEO, USGA

“Mike Keiser’s work will be studied for generations. I’ve never played a Keiser course that didn’t leave me thrilled and wanting to go back. His latest book with Stephen Goodwin takes you behind the scenes.”—Jerry Tarde, editor in chief of Golf Digest
“Mike Keiser is the best thing to happen to golf since the Big Bertha. He’s the guy who single-handedly saved us from the Fake 100-foot Waterfall Era. He gave us back nature, walking and buddy trips. This is a fascinating read on how in the world he did it.”—Rick Reilly, golf writer

“A terrific tale of a serial entrepreneur who’s love of golf and business combined to make the Keiser family the best thing to hit golf since Titanium.”—Tim Boyle, president and CEO of Columbia Sportswear Company

“Mike has been an exemplar in my life. His approach to family, friends, fun and business, all shine through in The Nature of the Game. As a humble hero, he imparts these lessons on all those around him, which create a life of richness that cannot be rivalled.”—Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO of Cabot Cape Breton resort
