Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A less than serious, if occasionally right on the mark, look at life of the average British golf club. If you want your funny bone tickled or know the golfing world, this is for you. Swancliffe and Ankerdine Golf Club or 'Swankers' as it's known by some locals, with its collection of swingers, shankers and, naturally those other types and 'Spankers' by a few 'in the know' members for those notorious off-course antics. Through the eyes of eight officials, discover life both on and off its fairways - Denis Scott, power-crazed captain, introducing hair-brained, impractical schemes; Brenda 'Brunhilde' Maddox, lady captain and scourge of the ladies' and men's sections alike; Richardson, its pro, running his infamous 'Grip it and Grope it' Golf Academy; Barnes, ex-police sergeant and incompetent secretary and Tomlinson, chairman, wheeler-dealer business man and woman-chaser. Add the octogenarian hackers among the seniors, the militant wing of the ladies' section and a galaxy of practical jokers making every club officials' life hell and you've the ingredients of life in a typical British golf club.
