Stanley Thompson Book Contest

I’m delighted to by giving away a copy of Mike Bell’s great coffee [photopress:Thompsonbook_1_2.jpg,full,alignright]table book — The Golf Courses of Stanley Thompson. Little ol’ me is in there too — having written a handful of essays for the book, alongside some of Canada’s best golf writers, including architect Ian Andrew, the Hamilton Spectators’ Garry McKay, Ian Cruickshank and others. If you are a fan of the great work of Canada’s legendary golf designer Stanley Thompson, you’ll be a fan of this book, which has a $80 retail fee.

As a bonus, I’ll even get Mike to sign the book to the winner, and I’ll scrawl something as well. My autograph isn’t worth anything on eBay, but it might add sentimental value! And everyone who enters (but don’t happen to win) will be given an offer to buy the book at a discount.

So, you are saying, what do I have to do to get into this remarkable new G4G contest? Well, you have to send me an email ( with the subject “Thompson book contest.” In the email I need you to name one Stanley Thompson course that has hosted a Canadian Open. Just one. It isn’t hard.

I’ll draw the winner on the 21st of May.
