29/11/2019: The Golf Lover's Guide to Scotland

The Golf Lover’s Guide to Scotland
By Michael Whitehead

Published by Pen and Sword

An A5 paperback book full of fascinating facts on over thirty golf courses.

As a non-player, but avid watcher, of the wonderful game of golf, I found this book to be a great read. It lists everything you need to know about each course mentioned, including green fees, the availability of caddies, price of equipment hire, whether a handicap certificate is required and how to book.

A detailed description of ‘Playing the Course’ is given for each Golf Club with the pitfalls mentioned for every hole and suggestions given on how to play it.

Wonderful photographs are also included for every course showing the beautiful and varied scenery of Scotland.

This delightful book also includes the history of each course and, whether you are a history buff or not, it makes for interesting reading. The information given was never dry or boring and I certainly learnt a lot of historical facts from this book.

The Golf Lover’s Guide to Scotland truly is a book where pure enjoyment leaps from every page.
