Tommy’s Honour Opens April 14th

Let’s make an outing to view Tommy’s Honour. More info once released.

The book screen-shot-2017-02-05-at-8-40-43-am

is also a very interesting read on golf history, design of early courses and the first Open. Young Tom was given the education of a wealthy boy and his days were spent literally exploring and playing on the golf dunes by the sea. Despite his success he would never become a gentleman member of St Andrew’s. His sister, of course, remained home helping their Mum. Old Tom first worked as a child stuffing “featherys” and later as a caddie and course designer. He was mocked by the members for carrying sand up from the beach to his greens. Its a  technique continued today to enhance golf greens. Here’s a little link to learn about early golf balls.
