The book, Golf in the Heather and Gorse by David Worley, is more of a diary of the author’s travels to inland courses in Scotland and England than anything else. The Isle of Arran is singled out for special consideration.
There are more than 300 photographs supporting the text and descriptions of the characteristics of the course and a few standout holes.
If your grandad went on a golfing holiday and wrote a book about it, Golf in the Heather and Gorse would be it. A modern version of The Golf Courses of the British Isles – there is very little to be found for the ardent, architecturally inclined.
