THIS IS THE TEXT ONLY VERSION.


18 Greatest Scottish Golf Holes details the greatest challenges in Scottish Golf. It has been described as 'sumptuous and superb' by The Wall Street Journal and as a 'work of art' and 'an instant collectible' by Forbes Magazine.

 

The holes were selected by consensus, based on hundreds of interviews with tour stars, celebrated architects, club pros, greenkeepers, great amateurs, those who best know the game in Scotland... Many of those interviews are included in this book.

 

When your trip to the home of golf is but a memory this book will allow you to retreat to the study, pour a glass of your favourite malt whisky and lose yourself...

 

In its content, presentation and philosophy 18 Greatest Scottish Golf Holes pushes

the boundaries of what has gone before. Released in 2010 as a strictly limited First

Edition of just 3,000 copies, this elegantly laid-out and illustrated book features informed and considered chapters on Scotland’s eighteen greatest golf holes with

images captured by one of the world’s foremost photographers.

 

Some of Scotland’s most famous holes including Troon’s Postage Stamp and the Old Course’s Road Hole are featured. But golfing wonders from newer courses including Kingsbarns and Castle Stuart are also here and less celebrated challenges too.

 

In his foreword Colin Montgomerie says:

 

“The book’s aim is a simple one: to give Scottish golf and its great holes the treatment they deserve. And that aim has been achieved. For my part it is great to see Scottish golf presented so sharply, to see with fresh eyes the forgotten wonders of older clubs we sometimes take for granted as well as to see the remarkable style of some of the country’s newest golf courses.”
