The inland courses of England and Scotland are often overlooked because of the publicity afforded to the Open which can only be played on a links.
Golf in the Heather and Gorse takes you on a journey through over 70 heartland, moorland and parkland courses commencing in the east coast of Scotland and finishing in Cornwall.
There is also a special chapter on the Isle of Arran which has no less than 7 golf courses.
Apart from detailed course descriptions there is travel information and over 300 beautiful colour photographs showing the courses and Mother Nature in peak form.Whether it is James Braid's Boat of Garten in the Scottish highlands or Harry Colt's wonderful Swinley Forest in Surrey, the heathland courses in particular are shown at their spectacular best.
To quote from Peter Thomson: "Worley has a unique way of presenting inland golf as an art form".
If you are planning a golfing holiday then Golf in the Heather and Gorse is indispensable. If you can't make the journey then this book will take you there.
What are people saying about David Worley's Golf Books?
Worley's book will certainly wet the appetite of those planning such a venture, and for them it is compulsory reading.... as one who has made several tours of Scotland, this writer can verify the commonsense and practicalities of Worley's advice
