Bobby Jones once said: “If you’ve played less than 10 rounds at The Old Course and you claim to like it, you’re a liar.” St Andrews – How to Play the Old Course should help you if you only get to play it once.
For golfers, St Andrews is hollowed ground – it is Mecca. For many, however, the experience lacks the sparkle it should. That is exactly why this book is so valuable.
Tip Anderson, a St Andrews native and caddy to Mr Arnold Palmer, provides insight only a lifetime spent around the Old Course could offer. Desmond Muirhead’s insight betrays a fundamental grasp of strategic design principles despite a portfolio of quirky design.
Reading this alongside Scott MacPherson’s Evolution of the Old Course will prepare you for your Bucket List trip and help you understand the experience.
