When Maggie is tragically widowed, she cannot imagine how she will manage without her husband. Then her ninety-nine-year-old golf club suddenly faces collapse in an unprecedented financial crisis and she finds herself cast in the role as saviour. Together with her young Polish lodger, she launches a bold plan to save the club’s centenary and make her own life more rewarding. 

But when he mysteriously disappears along with her money, Maggie must face the biggest challenge of her life.

Set in 2008 at the start of the great financial crisis, this inspiring book charts Maggie’s year as she struggles against increasing odds trying to overcome male prejudice, a family catastrophe and grasping bankers.

OUTDRIVEN - Laurie Rogers
While the setting for this novel is a golf club, this is not a book about golf. The people who play the game offer much more fertile ground. The ructions and ramifications of disputes within the committee and the membership expose some fascinating characters and controversies that illustrate a poignant social commentary on issues well outside the game of golf. Vivid descriptions of people and their intentions take the reader through a neatly interwoven and engaging plot that demands the next page be turned. A very enjoyable read!

An entertaining story, cleverly plotted, with a twist in the tail. When a crisis hits her golf club, the admirable Maggie devises an ingenious plan to rescue it. Her battle to overcome the difficulties she encounters make for an absorbing read. The author certainly knows his way around golf clubs. He has an excellent feel for their atmosphere and culture, and amusingly portrays certain recognisable golf club 'types'.
