Australia Golf


Because of its many historic links to the United Kingdom, Australia has inherited many golf traditions from that source. Of course, Australia has also created a few golfing traditions of its own.

Visitors to Australia can enjoy many golf courses and a number of different resorts.

There's a Crocodile on the Golf Course... and he's not having a very good game! Luckily he has his friends, Goanna, Quoll and Frilly with him to help him out. Will he get a hole in one?

There's a Crocodile on the Golf Course is a delightfully illustrated tale which explores golf, friendships... and cranky crocodiles! Author and illustrator Rachel Barnett takes us around the course with Croco as he plays a round of golf. His friends, Goanna, Quoll and Frilly join in, but things don't start well for Croco. He is cranky and not having any fun. Although the game is just not going his way, his friends are there to help him out and offer some fun and friendship along the way. Soon things are looking up and by the end of the game he gets the ultimate reward... a hole-in-one!

This book was inspired by the real life crocodile which frequents the Alyangula Golf Course. It is a lighthearted, read-out-loud tale ideal for the golfing enthusiast or anyone else to share with the children in their life. Children will love the Australian animal characters and the vibrant illustrations so much they will want to read it again and again.

Product Description:
Norman von Nida - The "Von" - is a national treasure, Australia's last remaining link to a glorious era in sport which stretches back to the late 1920s.The creation of this book has been a remarkable collaboration between eighty-five-year old Norman von Nida and the thirty-year-old Ben Robertson. Ben is a journalist by training and aspired to be a book writer. Norman cannot write because of his blindness yet wanted his life story told in his own words. The process of creating this book required an unusual intimacy and trust. Norman would tell Ben his stories in his inimitable yardspinning style and Ben would then write them, retaining the von Nida nuances. This process has produced a book of great freshness and character which is also easy to read. It. s like having a series of good yarns with Norman von Nida.Norman von Nida is a legend of Australian golf. He is one of only a handful of players alive in the world today who locked horns with golfing legends such as Walter Hagen, Bobby Jones, Henry Cotton, Gene Sarazen and Ben Hogan. He counts among his friends the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Peter Thomson, all of whom have contributed generous forewords.The pathfinding legacy he has provided for Australian golfers is without peer. He is to Australian golf what Donald Bradman is to Australian cricket.Ben Robertson has done Norman von Nida and the Australian public a great service by bringing "The Von's" story to life.
