St Andrews- The Greenkeeper’s Tale

St Andrews- The Greenkeeper’s Tale
In his first book, Gordon Moir, the author and former Director of Greenkeeping of St Andrews Links, tells the inside story of managing the Home of Golf and shares the story of the day-to-day workings on the huge complex, noting the highs and lows, challenges, and ultimately the rewards of being in charge.

He touches on his biggest and recurring challenge, which was preparing the Links for three Open Championships. Offering a glimpse behind the scenes during these Opens, St Andrews – The Greenkeeper’s Tale while being factual, is a light- hearted read with colourful anecdotes involving the game’s great legends and many others in the world of golf. As public courses, owned by the citizens, local golfing politics were never dull, and there are many memorable moments on and off the courses.
Moir, who is currently president of BIGGA (the British and International Golf Greenkeepers’ Association), has travelled widely to share his experience. Set to the backdrop of the ever-changing role and techniques of the modern greenkeeper, this is an entertaining, fascinating read that offers unique insights by one of the industry’s most respected leaders.

Available from Amazon in paperback or as a download and at various other outlets.
