In conducting research, and expanding my golfing eduction, I wrote a book in 2007 called – ‘St Andrews, The Evolution of the Old Course’. This book has been well received and is now considered the definitive book on the changes to the Old Course. Please click on the cover of the book to read more about it.


In 2014 I wrote my second book and it is entitled ‘Golf’s Royal Clubs’. Commissioned by the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and to commemorate the Queens Diamond Jubilee, the book celebrates the 66 royal golf clubs that have had their title conferred on them by the British Royal Family. Please click on the cover of the book to read more about it.

"Scott is a very good course designer and it's interesting to go around a course and see what he sees. I have my own ideas about courses and the way they should look, but listening to somebody like Scott, who has a lot of experience, makes you appreciate how much more there is to take into account when you are designing one."
