In a warm and wonderfully told memoir that transcends the boundaries of travel and sports writing, Gillespie chronicles the year he spent with his family in Gullane, Scotland, home to Muirfield, site of the 2002 British Open.
I picked this up at the library searching for books about golfing in Scotland for an upcoming trip. What I found was a book that was about much more than golf. The author did a great job going back and forth between his time in Scotland and memories of his father. While I would have loved to read more about the golf courses, I thoroughly enjoyed the tales of his father, friends in Scotland, and the innocence of his young children. A great read for anyone, not just lovers of golf...and I really want to play Gullane!
