Featured interview with Ran Morrissett on GOLF CLUB ATLAS

"What Shivas Irons is to Michael Murphy, Allan Bond is to Luke Reese.  Luckily for us, Reese captures their relationship for eternity in this timeless and transporting book."

Michael Bamberger, GOLF Magazine // GOLF.com, Author of To the Linksland

"Great read…Enjoyed playing with those guys…but never enjoy losing and having to pay out.”

Pádraig Harrington, Three-time Major Winner

One for the Memory Banks beautifully weaves the color of the game with the personalities that every golfer will identify with and love. Once I started reading I could not put it down. The reader will be captivated by the masterful storytelling that transports the reader to each time and place as if they were right there playing along—a journey they will never forget.”

                                                 Todd Martin, President, Peter Millar Golf

"The stories, the people, the friendships, the competition, and, of course, the emotion...One for the Memory Banks has everything that makes golf the greatest game on earth."

—Jason Adel, CEO, GOLF.com // GOLF Magazine

"Three chapters in.  Just read my favorite line ever written in a book.  Bondy is legendary.  I'm hooked!" 

—Wes Roberts, Shooting Star Golf Club

"Luke Reese has an uncanny ability to distill human nature, golf and golf courses into their essential elements. The story is simultaneously uplifting and poignant and will appeal equally to both the well-traveled and the armchair golfer. His pithy descriptions of comparing various links courses in the UK to movies and actors is brilliant, and spot on. One for the Memory Banks introduces several new phrases into the golfing lexicon that are bound to stick, including "Billionaire golf." His hard-earned insight explaining why American golfers should never play against a British golfer for money will save you multiples of the cost of the book. Two thumps up." 

 —John Sabino, Author, How to Play the World's Most Exclusive Golf Clubs

 

"Love the booka wonderful read—full of laughter, friendship, competitive banter, and old school golf at its best."

—Tim Edwards, Beaverbrook

"I couldn’t put this book down, except to take air swings in the house.  I sure hope our trip to Scotland happens this fall."

Jack Davis, Essex County Club

"I don’t get the chance to read many books, so when I do, they need to fill my imagination with vivid images while telling a great story. Luke Reese does both of these in the archetypal “can’t put it down” way. While it is a story of a wonderful friendship born through golf, the picture he paints of the golf courses, the matches, the characters, and even the weather are in beautiful technicolor that burn into your mind...If you are a casual golfer, an avid top 100 collector, or just love hearing about people, this is for you to enjoy and become part of Luke’s family." 

—Neil Hampton, General Manager, Royal Dornoch

"Be warned: you will enjoy it ONLY if you like books that study human nature or if you like reading books that are golf-centric or if you like learning about UK hidden gems or if you like buddy stories or if you prefer match play, or if you agree that life is best experienced outdoors or etc. etc. ETC. You get the point: Golf is definitely the backdrop, but One for the Memory Banks is a story about life."
