The purpose, in writing this, is to inspire and guide other solitary, or small groups of golfers, to follow the dream and experience the unique joy of golf in Scotland. I am just a regular working guy, not wealthy or well to do, just a person who clips coupons for the local food store and simply enjoys the game of golf.

Since I started playing, I had long had the interest in making the trip, to the home of golf. However, I had always been put off by the stories of trips arranged through tour groups, not to mention the expense. I have always been the type of person to do things my own way, and not be excessively bound by other people�s arrangements. On top of that, I really didn�t have a lot of other golfing buddies that I could collaborate with. So� what to do? Here is my story.

About the Author

JEFF FOULK - A graduate of Temple University, in Ornamental Horticulture, was born on Long Island, NY, in August of 1943. Upon graduation, the plan had always been to join the family business, Bloodgood Nurseries, which was a wholesale plant nursery located on Long Island for several generations. At the age of fourteen, the business relocated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, outside of Philadelphia.

However, a growing interest in cars and racing took him away from horticulture and eventually evolved into a ten year career as a professional drag racer. Jeff�s drag racing career coincided with the evolution of nitro funny cars, which changed the face of the sport. After racing, Jeff remained in the automotive field, as a shop owner and dealership mechanic.

Always interested in competitive sports, Jeff took up golf at the age of sixteen and became a single digit handicapper, used to shooting in the 70�s, and occasionally breaking par. Over the Ocean and to the Links: A Golfer�s Journey is Jeff�s first book.
