Overview

Eight middle-aged avid golfers journeyed to Scotland to fulfill a life-long dream of playing the British Open courses. It was a "golf til you drop" itinerary and included all the Scottish courses on the British Open rotation: Carnoustie, Muirfield, Royal Troon, Turnberry, and the Old Course at St. Andrews. The group also played Prestwick, the site of the first British Open, and several other famous links that are used as qualifiers for the Open Championship. They encountered all the challenges of links golf in Scotland: wind, rain, gorse, heather and pot bunkers. Each of the ten days was a chance to face the toughest courses in the birthplace of the great game, and gain memories that will be treasured by the group to the end of their days. Tanner Stewart captures the joy of playing golf with close friends on the great historic venues of Scotland. This book invites the reader to join the group as it weaves a rich tapestry of unique experiences in golf and life.

I loved this book about a group of middle-aged guys going on a dream vacation to Scotland. I've played golf courses in the United States, but it was really something to read about what golf is like in the place where it started. The book is a real page-turner, with golf talk interspersed with interesting conversations of the travellers. If you can't go to Scotland yourself, this is the next best thing.
