Golf Information News, Vol 11, No 3 April 2014

Welcome to the latest issue of Golf Information News - your guide to what's worth reading in golf course architecture.


Golf – Scotland’s Game, by David Hamilton.

Scotlands Game

Published by The Partick Press, 1998. I have at last obtained a reasonably priced copy of this much sought-after book.
It traces the origins of golf from a Scottish Sunday churchyard sport to its emergence in the modern form. The book concludes that it was in Scotland alone that the modern game appeared.


Spon's External Works and Landscape Price Book 2011


I have obtained a newer edition of this book - our last one was from 2006. While not entirely up-to-date it does proved a useful guide to costings.


James Braid and his four hundred golf courses

James Braid and his 400 courses

By John F Moreton and Iain Cumming. Published by Grant Books, 2013.
Braid's first recorded golf course design is recorded as 1897. Soon his talent as a golf architect became known and he was in ever increasing demand throughout the country and abroad until his death in 1950.
