New book: St Andrews - The Home of Golf
June 23, 2010

This is a stunning visual journey around golf's alma mater - an ideal souvenir for the millions of fans following The Open Championship this July on the BBC and at the tournament itself.

St Andrews, once Scotland's greatest city, is known internationally today as the spiritual 'Home of Golf', a place that evokes images of windswept seaside links and legendary golfing champions.

This luxurious full-colour history is packed with acclaimed golf photographer Kevin Murray's spectacular shots and, as The Open Championship returns in 2010, marks the 150th anniversary of golf's oldest and most prestigious tournament.

It includes a Foreword by a true legend of the game, Seve Ballesteros, who famously won the 1984 Open at St Andrews and who will make an emotional return there this July to take part in a special competition with other previous Open champions. Proceeds from sales of the book will be donated to the Seve Ballesteros Foundation, in partnership with Cancer Research UK.

Golf lovers everywhere will feast on the book's lavish photographic journey through the medieval city's cobbled streets, through the doors of many prestigious golf clubs residing within its greystone walls, and around each one of St Andrews' several great courses - from the fabled Old Course to the stunning new Castle Course.

Henry Lord is the author of the highly acclaimed golf titles, Creating Classics (Icon, 2008) and Masters of Design (Icon, 2009). A lifelong golfer specialising in the game's history and course architecture, he has a deep and lasting affection for St Andrews. Oliver Gregory is a graduate of St Andrews University and attended the prestigious Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, as a Bobby Jones Scholar.

Kevin Murray is widely regarded as one of the best photographers in the world of golf. His unique style offers a fresh and original approach to the industry and his work has featured in Golf Monthly , and The World Atlas of Golf , amongst other publications.
