Pilgrims in the RoughPilgrims 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.

 

St. Andrews and GolfSt. 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.

St. Andrews in Old PhotographsSt. Andrews and the Open Championship:... You could visit St. Andrews for years and not see scenes like the amazing color photographs done by Iain MacFarlane Lowe. They are a treasure. The book also contains many good black and white photographs.

The 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.

A 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".
