Links Golf - The Inside Story

by Paul Daley

links golf by Paul Daley

Links land is sacred and ancient – and the golf played on this precious terrain is a time-honoured and noble sport. Links Golf – The Inside Story captures and explains the passions surrounding the playing of this game. From the world-famous St Andrews, Ballybunion and Royal St Georges to the lesser-known courses of Aberdovey and Machrie, Paul Daley has conferred with the people behind the scenes to uncover the inside story.

"This truly is the inside story of links golf. Encompassing the history, tradition, and images of the great links, this book is a worthy travelling companion, and guide, on your golfing journey" – Ian Baker-Finch

"It is worth celebrating links golf in text and picture images, and this is done fairly and fully in Paul Daley’s book" – Peter Thomson, CBE, Open Champion 1954, 1955, 1956, 1958, 1965

"Links are the soul of the game – the greatest places on which to play, and they teach us much about the way the game aught to be. So does this book." – Michael Clayton
