ENTHUSIASTIC AMATEURS
A Cautionary Tale for Golf and Sporting Clubs
Alan Jamieson

This book describes the management history of some North-West Coast Tasmania golf clubs, with focus on Seabrook golf Club. There is also a sobering message for all persons interested in playing golf. 

Non-profit organisations that rely on volunteers to take on management roles lack control over the quality of the resulting business decisions. The apathy shown by the organisation's members is a chief cause. Sporting clubs provide examples. The lessons provided herein will have application at hundreds of other, non-profit organisations exposed to decisions made by volunteer committees. RRP $20.00. This book can be purchased by going to the Contact page and printing out the purchase form. Postage $2.70

This book should be read by every director of every golf club in Australia, if not the world.
Peter Gompertz
Editor of The Long Game, journal of the Golf Society of Australia

...a 'compelling read', especially for those of us who love GOLF and are seeking to thwart its decline.
Ross Baker
Traditional golf club maker, and golf historian

I recommend this book to all golfers, and in particular to Tasmanian golf club committees.
Peter Toogood, OA, MBE


COME FLY FISH WITH ME
A Way With Trout
Graeme Bourke

Graeme shares in a straight-from-the -heart style both his joys and frustrations as a beginner fly fisherman. RRP $25.00. This book can be purchased by going to the Contact page and printing out the purchase form. Postage $2.70.

This book is written in a fluent and easy-to-read style which dosen't get bogged down in jargon too technical for the learner.
Judy Herbert

There is in this book a wealth of seeing and doing that takes me back half a century.
David Scholes

This is a truly honest book, totally without pretension. Newcomers to fly fishing will find it a comfort to read that they are not alone through those first seasons of frequent failures, and more important, that success awaits them if they persist.
Phil Weigall
