in the Rough: St. Andrews... Beyond the 19th Hole. An insider's
guide to golfing in St Andrews, this book provides information
on the course and the history of the game. It looks at the history
of the town, with parallels drawn between the early pilgrims
to St Andrews and the post-reformation "pilgrims"
to the links, and also contains tourist information about where
to stay, where to eat, and what to see and do in the area.
Andrews and Golf Offers an artist's perspective of historic
St Andrews which is known throughout the golfing world as the
'birthplace of golf' and home of the Royal and Ancient Golf
Club. Arthur Weaver, a premier golf artist for three decades,
depicts many of the events and personalities which have influenced
golf in St Andrews for more than 500 years. Also featured are
the interesting sights and traditions of the town, which dates
back to the Roman Empire. Interspersed among the hundreds of
illustrations are exclusive essays by noted golf personalities.
Discover the appeal of the 'auld grey toun' and why more famous
golfers have set foot on the Old Course than on any other golf
course in the world.

Andrews for years and not see scenes like the amazing color
photographs done by Iain MacFarlane Lowe. They are a treasure.

of historic golfing events at St. Andrews.
Andrews in Old Photographs (Scotland... Drawn from family
albums, local collections and professional photographers, they
show the way things were and how they have changed. Every photograph
is captioned, providing names and dates where possible, revealing
historical and anecdotal detail and giving life to the scenes
and personalities captured through the camera lens. Bringing
together all aspects of daily life - celebrations and disasters,
work and leisure, people and buildings - the collection should
inspire memories, as well as serve as an introduction to visitors.
Scrapbook of Old Tom Morris Old Tom Morris lived to the
age of eighty-seven, witnessing, and being a major part of,
the development of a sport which is now played all over the
world (and once on the moon). It is therefore extraordinary
that this seems to be the only book dedicated to his life, or
even to this time in golf's history; prior to this publication,
the exceptional characters of the time - Old Tom Morris, Willie
Park, Allan Robertson, Young Tom Morris - have merited only
the odd paragraph in golfing encyclopedia. Scottish Golf Books.

An autobiographical title which examines the relationship between

background of golf lore and legend. Scottish Golf Books.
Wee Nip at the 19th Hole For over 200 years caddies have
been walking around St Andrews, the most famous piece of golfing
land in the world, advising players of vastly different abilities
not only on which club to take but also on the type of shot
required and, most importantly on the Old Course, exactly the
line on which to play. Richard Mackenzie reminds us how caddies
first came to St Andrews, the way in which they have added so
much to the folklore of the links and the great contribution
which they have made and continue to make to the game of golf
for those who visit "The Home of Golf". Scottish Golf

Monance, Pittenweem, Anstruther and Crail, it would be sheer
paradise - but there's so much more to it than that. Scottish
