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 and the Open ChampionshipSt. 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.

St. Andrews in Old PhotographsSt. 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.

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.
