TGJ Senior Editor/Podcast host/globe-trotting golfer Tom Coyne has finally returned home, and he comes bearing gifts.

After playing hundreds of courses overseas in the birthplace of golf, ​Coyne, the New York Times bestselling author of A Course Called Ireland and A Course Called Scotland, returns to his own birthplace and delivers a rollicking love letter to golf in the United States with A Course Called America.

Now you can be among a select few to own a signed, first-edition hardbound copy, straight from the author himself. Only 100 of these have been made available to TGJ Members, so hesitate at your own risk. For more on what’s inside, scroll below:

In the span of one unforgettable year, Tom Coyne crisscrosses the country in search of its greatest golf experience, playing every course to ever host a US Open, along with more than two hundred hidden gems and heavyweights, visiting all fifty states to find a better understanding of his home country and countrymen.

As our man travels from the oldest and most elite of links to the newest and most democratic, he finagles his way onto coveted first tees (Shinnecock, Oakmont, Chicago GC) between rounds at off-the-map revelations, like ranch golf in Eastern Oregon and homemade golf in the Navajo Nation. He marvels at the golf miracle hidden in the sandhills of Nebraska, and plays an unforgettable midnight game under bright sunshine on the summer solstice in Fairbanks, Alaska.

But, in the end, only one stop on Coyne’s journey can be ranked the Great American Golf Course. Should it be charmingly traditional or daringly experimental? An architectural showpiece or a natural wonder? Countless conversations and gut instinct lead him to seek out a course that feels bold and idealistic, welcoming yet imperfect, with a little revolutionary spirit and a damn good hot dog at the turn.

Packed with fascinating tales from American golf history, comic road misadventures, illuminating insights, and many a memorable round with local golfers and celebrity guests alike, A Course Called America is an epic narrative travelogue brimming with heart and soul.
