Hole By Hole is the website for my golf book reviews and golf columns.
The site originally began in 1997 as the online presence for my handicap stroke allocation service.
I used the actual scores posted by golfers, as well as the allocation guidance in the Handicap Manual of the United States Golf Association. I performed this service for golf courses throughout the United States.
In 1998, I joined Amazon.com’s Associates program, and began posting golf book reviews at Hole By Hole.
In November 1998, I chatted with Trish Vernon, the editor of The Cape Gazette, the major newspaper in southern Delaware. The twice-weekly paper focuses on the Atlantic Coast communities of Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Dewey Beach, Milton, and the surrounding area.
Vernon asked if I would be interested in writing a golf column for the newspaper.
My first column ran on January 1, 1999. It’s been a weekly Friday fixture in the Gazette ever since.
The writing part of Hole By Hole became it’s primary focus, so I have ended the allocation service.
The hyperlink text under the book cover image at each review will take you to the Amazon page for that book. Any purchase you make during those Amazon visits will generate a little commission for me, so thanks for your support!
I am also a member of the Golf Writers Association of America.
