A great and honest read about golf and golfers This is Tom Coynes third book about golf that I have read and I have found them all entertaining, informative and engaging enough to read them again. A Course Called Scotland is more compelling as Tom visits a lot golf courses across Scotland that I have actually played. As ever there is a drive to all of his accounts, I am not quite at the end of the book but I am sure it will tell me a lot about golf, golfers and the secret of golf!

A thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring read. I don’t read a lot of books, but had by chance stumbled onto seeing something telling me the release date of this latest Tom Coyne work, and me being a golfer from Scotland, it stuck in my head for weeks. I’m calling it fate.Any man or woman who attempts to play this amount of golf and travel this many miles in such a short space of time, is going to have good stories to share and this book didn’t disappoint.3 sittings it took me to read this, I was absolutely captured by Tom’s…

Beautifully written stories of Scotland, Golf and learning what’s important in life. This book is about so much more than golf. Coyne tells you about the human condition through everything from finding new friends to (almost) losing tee pegs. The author loves golf. By the end of the book it loves him back and even if it didn’t, the game let him find out what is important in life, both on and if the links. Hugely recommended.
