Overview

Every day golfers from all over the world cross oceans and continents to visit the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland to play the round of a lifetime at the birthplace of golf, The Old Course at St. Andrews. If the course is booked -- it usually is -- they enter the daily lottery, hoping to win a tee time for "tomorrow," or the next day. And they wait.

All the Courses in the Kingdom offers another option -- a fascinating tour of all 43 courses in Fife, from municipal to chapionship layouts, 9-hole and 18, challenging, available, inexpensive, and all only a few miles, or yards, from The Old Course.

Only novelist and golfer Richard E. Peck, author of All the Courses, has played them all. Even if you never tee it up at Kingsbarns, or Ladybank, or Crail, the book you're holding will let you enjoy these wonderful layouts with him. Then play The Old Course.
