Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

On the Hole by Jeff Bacot tells the story of Jay ‘Skew’ Hewitt, a vice president of a production and music distribution company, and Nick Landers, a tax attorney. They are both regular golfers at the Regina Buck & Duck Hunt Country Club. After eighteen holes, the friendship between the two men is explored; suddenly, it is not just about golf anymore. It is about life.

If I were to pick one word to describe this novel, it would probably be “genius”. Golf is not my favorite sport, but this novel might just changed my mind about it. On the Hole is an engaging story about the game between two men. Jeff Bacot has written some of the best complete characters that I have read so far. But the greatest thing about the story is that it is not just about golf, but thought-provoking things such as relationships, love, friends, family, and even oneself. It is fiction but it is definitely has a lot of heart. And to categorize On the Hole in one genre seems inappropriate because it has adventure, romance, tear-jerking moments and of course, humor as well. All in all, Jeff Bacot gives everything in this book for readers to enjoy. You don’t have to be a golfer or even love golf for that matter to read the story – this is not just for the guys as my fellow female readers will enjoy reading it as well. A highly recommended book for a fun, relaxing read.
