Longtime BJT golf columnist Bradley S. Klein takes “a journey across the landscapes of modern golf” in his latest book, Wide Open Fairways. According to University of Nebraska Press, the publisher, the book discusses how today’s courses “inspire us, stimulate our senses and reveal the special nature of particular places” and offers an “absorbing view of golf courses as cultural markers, linking the game to larger issues of land use, ecology, design and imagination.”

Besides writing for this magazine, Klein serves as architecture editor of Golfweek and runs its national golf-course rating system. His previous books include Discovering Donald Ross: The Architect and His Golf Courses and Rough Meditations: From Tour Caddie to Golf Course Critic: An Insider’s Look at the Game.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
