In this text, the authors begin at the beginning - in 15th century Scotland - and chart the rise of golf, which, from humble origins, has become a billion-dollar industry. They draw not only on their own experiences and observations, but also a selection of timeless articles from golf's literary elite - Henry Longhurst and Peter Dobereiner among them.
