Abstract:

In the casual style of storytelling to good friends, Sun-Up to Sun-Down reveals a rarely seen look into the personal lives of a diverse set of American entrepreneurs who by one path or another own golf courses. Even though today s golf industry is truly global, the United States is home to roughly one-half of all the golf courses in the world, as well as roughly one-half of all the golfers in the world. From manufacturing, construction, retail, tourism, service and other broad sectors of the industry, golf has a very important role in the U.S. economy. At the core of the industry are the men and women who own and operate the playing fields, the golf courses.
