The Wandering Golf Writer: Tom Coyne

November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

When the adventure began, the bag on his back had a binder with maps, 103 room reservations and over 40 tee times. By the end of the trip he had hit 4,531 shots, lost 129 balls, visited 196 pubs and had the makings of a New York Times bestseller which, it did become, and still is, and has even become something of a bible for American golfers planning trips to Ireland. Since 2007, Tom Coyne, Sr. Editor and Podcast host for Golfer’s Journal followed the success of A Course called Ireland with A Course Called Scotland and A Course Called America, each met with similar acclaim. Ahead of his next book due out 2025, we’re pleased to collaborate with Kiawah Partners in hosting Tom Coyne for his first appearance in Charleston.

His second book, Paper Tiger: An Obsessed Golfer’s Quest to Play with the Pros, was an editor’s pick for Esquire and USA Today but the third book in 2009, A Course Called Ireland: A Long Walk in Search of a Country, a Pint, and the Next Tee, was a New York Times, American Booksellers Association, and Barnes & Noble bestseller, and won a silver medal from the Society of American Travel Writers in the category of Best Travel Book of the Year. His anticipated follow-up searching the highlands for the secret to golf and a tee time in the oldest championship in sports, A Course Called Scotland, was also an instant New York Times bestseller. The trilogy reached its conclusion in 2021 with A Course Called America, following Tom across all 50 states and landing on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists in its first week. His next book, A Course Called Home, will be released by Avid Reader in 2025.
