The Trouble with Golf
A humorous look at the game of golf through verse, cartoons and observations from one of New Zealand’s best-loved cartoonists. His earlier book of verse, Nursery Rhymes your mother never read you (2005) was the first New Zealand poetry book to have been awarded both a New Zealand bestseller Gold medal and a New Zealand Bestseller Platinum medal (16,000 cps sold). Widely known as both a landscape painter and a political cartoonist, and not at all as a golfer, Garrick Tremain succumbed to the intrigue of golf many years ago and perseveres with its challenges despite reason and advice. He finds it astonishing that it engenders such strong emotions in some people: watching him in action, grown men have been known to weep. This book is his tribute in verse, cartoons and quotes to the game and those who persist in playing it!

Garrick Tremain is highly regarded both as a painter and as New Zealand's funniest and most perceptive political cartoonist. His political cartoons are published every weekday in the Otago Daily Times. He lives in New Zealand's Wakatipu Basin, where he shares life with his wife, Jill, and their two cats, Marco Stan Polo and Oliver R. Buckle.
