Golf in the Kingdom is adapted from Esalen Institute founder Michael Murphy's 1972 divine meditation on the royal and ancient game. Instantly hailed as a classic, the book is a unique confluence of fiction, philosophy, myth, mysticism, enchantment and golf instruction. It remains the best-selling work of fiction involving the game of golf, published worldwide and read by millions.

En route to India in 1956 in search of enlightenment, a young American philosophy student takes a Scottish detour to the fabled "Links of Burningbush." Seeking to enjoy one last round before giving up his beloved game, he is unexpectedly paired with the mysterious and mischievous golf pro Shivas Irons. A wild adventure on and off the links ensues, where the young student's perception of golf and life are indelibly changed. The events alter not only the young man's game, but they also radically alter his mind and inner vision, and forge between student and teacher a deep and unbreakable bond of camaraderie.
