'Ed paints a unique portrait of Gleneagles, Scottish golf and the history of the Ryder Cup' --Perthshire Advertiser

'In his engaging, polished publication Jewel in the Glen, Ed Hodge traces the Ryder Cup's Gleneagles connections and unearths one or two gems' --Herald

About the Author

Ed Hodge grew up in Perthshire, is a former Gleneagles caddy and employee and has enjoyed a writing relationship with the five-star resort for a number of years. A University of St Andrews modern history graduate with 11 years previous experience as a sports writer in Scotland, Ed is now PR & Media Executive for the Scottish Golf Union. This is his first book.

Jack Nicklaus is globally regarded as the greatest golfer of all time. Together with fellow American Arnold Palmer and South African Gary Player, known as the "Big Three", he is credited with turning golf into the major spectator sport it has become. Nicklaus was a key driver of change for the Ryder Cup, proposing the inclusion of European players to try to even up the competition after another comfortable win for the US over Great Britain in 1977; his influence will be as keenly felt at Gleneagles in 2014 after designing a number of changes to the PGA Centenary Course, where the battle for the Ryder Cup will be fought.

I received "Jewel in the Glen" as a gift but would have purchased it anyway, being a golf enthusiast. A wonderful book to have. The author's report of his interviews and anecdotes gathered from all the greats in the game and from golf administrators really captures the imagination and flavour of the Ryder Cup, culminating in a very informative history of previous encounters. A most enjoyable read and a must-have for every golfer.

After talking to the author, buying a ticket for the first day of the Ryder Cup and reading the book, I am more excited than ever about my visit to Gleneagles in September.

Although English I have a great affiliation with Scotland through a Scottish Mother, going to university in Scotland and working there for a time. My parents lived in nearby Dunblane and my Dad was a member of Gleneagles in the 1970's when annual membership was less than $100!

This beautifully-written book will inspire anyone planning to attend the Ryder Cup or those less fortunate to pay a visit to Gleneagles at another time.

I particularly enjoyed the very local flavour provided by the author from his experience of living close by, the interviews with major golfing personalities, professional and otherwise, and sharing the excitement of what the Ryder Cup will mean both locally and nationally in 2014 and beyond.

Well done Ed

The Ryder Cup will bring an almost unprecedented year for Scotland to a close in 2014. As one of the great sporting spectacles of our age, "Jewel in the Glen" manages to whet the appetite, were it ever needed, for what will be a very special tournament on a very special golf course. With effortless writing, fascinating photographs and an engaging array of golf and Scottish sporting greats, the author guides us through the history of Gleneagles and the Ryder Cup, and the profound impact both have had on Scotland and beyond. The format is very accessible whether you are looking to read cover-to-cover, dip in and out the countless curious and wonderful photographs and stories, or fact check and reference some great golfing or Gleneagles trivia.

"Jewel in the Glen" is an essential read for 2014 if you have the slightest interest in golf, Gleneagles or the Ryder Cup. If it needs any further endorsement, Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond recently listed this book as his book of the year! High, and worthy, praise indeed.

It is just like it says on the cover - a jewel of a book. I have read Jewel in the Glen and it is excellently written. Full of interesting facts and photographs. Ed Hodge has a very easy style and has done a huge amount of research for Jewel in the Glen. There are some memorable quotes from a multitude of golf greats and those who just love the game of golf. It is not just a book about Gleneagles, it sets the scene for the whole 2014 Ryder Cup starting with a chapter on the stunning victory at Medinah. I think Jack Nicklaus will have enjoyed it too.

This book offers a bright and fascinating insight into both the Ryder Cup and The fabulous course at Gleneagles. Written by someone who is almost an insider at Gleneagles and drenched with input from Golf's royalty.
A glittering read for anyone with even a slight interest in the game and it's most famous venue.
Size and weight make it an especially good present.
