The company is based in Edinburgh; where else would it be? Scotland is, after all, the home of Golf. The history of golf is synonymous with Scotland – the game was first recorded being played there in the 15th Century. Since then many famous Scottish courses have come into being: Carnoustie, Royal Troon, Gleneagles and Muirfield are obvious examples. None are more famous than The Old Course at St Andrews where golf has been played since before 1574 and has become the pilgrimage that golfers around the world dream of making at least once.
PG Wodehouse once wrote: “To find a man’s true character, play golf with him.” For so many who swing a wood or iron, hoping to hear and feel that perfect connection, golf is so much more than just a game. For many it is the one thing they can enjoy being bad at.
