Books That Give Back


You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

-Kahlil Gibran

The Golf Fanatic’s Guide to Hawaii by Bryan Fryklund
A book for golfers written by a golf fanatic…or golf enthusiast who considers himself more as a professional writer. Playing golf since the age of ten, Fryklund’s guide goes beyond a mere brochure of Hawaii’s golf courses and greenery photographs. This book details each of the holes in the various golf courses, which ones you are likely to “choke” on, the “19th hole”, a list of the toughest courses and much more. To keep in the Hawaii spirit, Fryklund throws in Hawaiian mythology such as the Night Marchers and what became of them that visit Ko’olau Golf Club’s 14th fairway.

Some friendly advice when you’re on the green: “No hassle da locals. They were not only here first, but it’s their tax dollars that keep the green fees affordable.” (61)
