Overview

This book carries a foreword by Sean Connery. Scotland gave golf to the world. With more golf courses per head than any other country, it is still a golfer's paradise. They range from remote honesty box clubs to superb Open Championship courses and the busy clubs of the towns. Scotland's strength is the vast range of enjoyable and historic courses throughout the land which welcome visitors, be they players of professional standard or recreational golfers who play only for the love of the game. Previous editions of this vastly popular guide have introduced thousands to the game in Scotland. It covers the history of Scottish golf, its best courses, and gives helpful information and advice about all aspects of play in the home of golf. This new edition is greatly expanded from an informative guide to a full-scale golfing miscellany. David Hamilton has added fascinating lists, details of extraordinary and dramatic golfing feats, tales about funny and tragic incidents on the golf course, statistics about leading golfers and championships and quirky facts and figures that show the rich diversity of Scotland's national sport. As well as being a practical companion for beginners and visiting players, "The Scottish Golf Guide" is now the ideal gift for the golf nuts in the family.
