“The Best Photo Book on Golf I’ve Seen…it Actually Made Me Homesick.” — David Feherty (special offer)

by Craig Better

Nov292012

You wouldn’t think too many things could get wise-cracking CBS and Golf Channel announcer David Feherty emotional about his home country of Ireland.

But this book is one of them.

It’s called Emerald Gems: The Links of Ireland, and it’s considered by many experts and in-the-know golfers to be the best photo book on Irish golf ever published.

Today, I’m going to tell you why this book is so highly praised and respected…

…how you can own a brand new copy for the lowest price offered anywhere (yes, including on Amazon.com)…

…and how to get it autographed by the famous photographer and shipped to you (or a gift recipient) for free.

More on this in a minute.

As you know, countless books have been published about golf in Ireland.

Most will simply come and go, never to be heard from again.

Emerald Gems, on the other hand, is one of the rare volumes that will stand the test of time.

This oversized, hardcover book is printed on the highest quality, high-gloss paper and weighs more than six pounds, but that’s not the reason for its staying power.

Waterville

It’s because this 220-page masterpiece includes stunning images of every links golf course in Ireland captured by the lens of Larry Lambrecht, the award-winning golf course photographer whose work has appeared in dozens of books and every major golf publication in the world.

In short, Emerald Gems is some of the best work, from one of the world’s best golf photographers, covering one of the world’s best golf destinations.

And, in addition to the large-format golf course images, so perfectly photographed you can almost feel Ireland’s sun, wind, and sea spray on your face, the book contains the work of expert Irish golf writers who provide all-important local knowledge and the colorful legends and lore that these charming links golf courses are known for.

If you’re planning a golf trip to Ireland, or want a permanent way to rekindle the fond memories of the Ireland golf vacations you’ve already taken, you simply will not find a better, more attractive resource than Emerald Gems.

But please don’t take my word for it. Here is what some of my colleagues have to say:

Emerald Gems is worthy of any golfer’s coffee table.”

Emerald Gems will stir your emotions and fuel your desire for a journey to the Emerald Isle.”

“Incredible, beautiful photographs of all of the great courses in Ireland, and a wonderful written talk about each course. Very highly recommended.”

Speaking of Amazon, if you were to look up Emerald Gems right now, you’d see that unsigned copies sell for $95 plus shipping.

Copies signed by the photographer sell for as much as $250 see photo below).

However, because I have an existing relationship with photographer Larry Lambrecht, I’ve been able to negotiate a special price (and package) for you, my valued readers.

Here it is:

If you purchase Emerald Gems by using one of the links on this page, you will pay just $75 and get free shipping to the continental United States.

Outside the continental United States, shipping fees will be applied to single-book orders. For multiple-book orders, please contact:

customerservice [at] golfodyssey [dot] com.

You can even send it to someone as a gift and I’ll include a card with your personalized message.

As an added bonus, the first 25 people who order will get a free copy of Larry Lambrecht’s 2013 Emerald Gems Calendar (at right), which normally sells for $19.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this calendar on a golf fanatic’s desk or wall — it’s like golf’s version of the coveted Pirelli calendar.

The 2013 edition includes gorgeous photographs of  Old Head, Rosapenna, Ballybunion, Ballyliffin, Tralee, and Waterville.

But, again, this special offer is for my readers only.

I will send you (or your gift recipient) the exact same copy of Emerald Gems you’d get if you purchased it in a bookstore, at Amazon.com (or from Larry Lambrecht’s own website for that matter).

The difference is, you’ll get an autographed copy for as much as 70% less than at Amazon, and you won’t pay a penny in shipping to the continental USA.

And, of course, if you’re one of the first 25 people to order, you’ll get a free copy of the 2013 Emerald Gems Calendar, too.

The only downside is that Larry has put a limit on the number of copies of Emerald Gems he’ll allow me to sell at this price. He’s only alloted me 100 copies, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

So, if you’d like to own or give as a gift what many golf aficionados and historians consider to be required reading for any serious golfer, my advice is to claim your copy now.
