One for the Memory Banks
The best golf book in 20 years." --James Dodson
One for the Memory Banks is a hilarious, and poignant, memoir about Luke Reese's fascination-turned-obsession with golf and about the friendships forged by a mutual love of the great game played on great courses. Part travelogue, part biography, part memoir, One for the Memory Banks captures the give and take of competition and conjures these memories and relationships in technicolor. Part Twain & Hemingway, Luke Reese carries readers on a sweeping journey across the UK and Ireland, introducing them to a fascinating group of characters who share a passion, and reminding them what makes golf so great.
"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, author of To the Linksland
“With its Twain-like storytelling and humor, One For The Memory Banks is a must read for any golfer who loves camaraderie and travel.“ --Andy Johnson, The Fried Egg
"Part travelogue, part journey of discovery, part combat story, part love story. One For The Memory Banks is testament to what Alister Mackenzie called “the pleasurable excitement of links golf,” especially when it’s played among kindred spirits.” --George Peper, Links Magazine
"Luke's vivid descriptions and economical use of words reminds me of Hemingway...for those of us who have scrapped a trip to the U.K., Luke's tours around these links are the next best thing...It all makes for a happy read in an unhappy year."
--Ran Morrissett, Golf Club Atlas, GOLF Magazine Architectural Editor
"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
