St Andrews is THE home of golf. The balls, clubs and rules of the game were developed here and for 500 years Royals and commoners have enjoyed the bracing challenge of the links. This fascinating booklet is packed with facts, snippets and opinion about 'the gowf' and its lore. It incorporates an article published over 100 years ago and a guide to the Old Course of the 1990s. Jack Nicklaus reveals the moment on it he will cherish forever and a diary highlights major events of golf dating back to 1457 when the King of Scotland banned the game as a threat to national security.
