How the Old Course Became the Old Course (Great Courses 1)

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll release the first few installments of what we’re calling our “Great Courses” series. These episodes will tell the stories of some of the best and most influential golf courses in history. And where else could we start but with the Old Course at St. Andrews?
Our guest is Scott Macpherson, a golf architect and historian, who recently published a revised edition of his fascinating, extraordinarily well-researched book St. Andrews: The Evolution of the Old Course. Scott joins Garrett to dispel some myths about the Old Course’s history (no, it wasn’t created solely by wind and sheep) and discuss how the links took on their modern form through a combination of natural and human influences.
You can order your own copy of Scott’s book on his website: St. Andrews: The Evolution of the Old Course.
