Description
In 1457 the Scottish parliament actually banned golf, and here master golf course architect Bob Cupp spins a colorful yarn about how this may have come to pass. In the Middle Ages, the Scottish town of St. Andrews was famous for its cathedral, its university, and for the game developed out in the linkslands by bored shepherds using balls and clubs. One, Caeril Patersone, is talented enough to be a champion, but to win the title he must contend not only with his competition but also a conniving financier and a sordid nobleman who have bet against him, not to mention the ravishing girl they have enlisted to throw the game.

"Cupp turns out to be a solid plotter, both on the course and off. His historical imaginings ring as true as the depictions of well-played bunker shots, and even his romantic subplot hits the mark. Quirky and fun."Booklist
