Near the end of the 19th century, the wealthy of Montreal, Boston, and New York "discovered" the sublime beauty of St. Andrews. The Algonquin and other luxurious hotels sprang up to serve these magnates and celebrities, and their "cottages" are among the most elaborate in eastern North America. Summers in St. Andrews is the deliciously anecdotal story of the rich, famous, and powerful who made St. Andrews one of Canada's poshest resort towns. The golden age ended with the Second World War, but the cottages are still enjoyed by their eminent owners. Recalling the glory days, Summers in St. Andrews describes 35 of the cottages in loving detail. The Toronto Star called the book, first published as No Hay Fever and a Railway, "unique and spirited," and The Montreal Gazette pronounced it "delightful," just like the summers it describes.

A hilarious and poignant memoir of a Harvard student who comes of age as a caddie on St. Andrews’s fabled Old Course. In the middle of Oliver Horovitz’s high school graduation ceremony, his cell phone rang: It was Harvard. He’d been accepted, but he couldn’t start for another year. A caddie since he was twelve and a golfer sporting a 1.8 handicap, Ollie decides to spend his gap year in St. Andrews, Scotland—a town with the U.K.’s highest number of pubs per capita, and home to the Old Course, golf ’s most famous eighteen holes—where he enrolls in the St. Andrews Links Trust caddie trainee program. Initially, the notoriously brusque veteran caddies treat Ollie like a bug. But after a year of waking up at 4:30 A.M. every morning and looping two rounds a day, Ollie earns their grudging respect— only to have to pack up and leave for Harvard. There, Ollie’s new classmates are the sons of Albania’s UN ambassador, the owner of Heineken, and the CEO of Goldman Sachs. Surrounded by sixth generation legacies, he feels like a fish out of water all over again and can’t wait to get back to St. Andrews. Even after graduation, when his college friends rush to Wall Street, Horovitz continues to return each summer to caddie on the Old Course. A hilarious, irresistible, behind-the-scenes peek at the world’s most celebrated golf course—and its equally famous caddie shack—An American Caddie in St. Andrews is certain to not only entertain golfers and fans of St. Andrews but also anyone who dares to remember stumbling into adulthood and finding one’s place in the world.

From one of the first mentions of St. Andrews by the British in 1771 to the present day, people have long been pulled to the community as an ideal place to live. Around 1880, many years after Native American tribes greeted the first European settlers to St. Andrews, the St. Andrews Bay Railroad, Land and Mining Company summed up this idyllic town in an advertisement for mailorder real estate with this description: “The loveliest location in all Florida . . . the fairest land the sun ever blessed with its genial kiss. There is but one Florida, and St. Andrews Bay is its brightest jewel.” Many settlers lured by advertising such as this came to visit and found they wanted to stay. After St. Andrews incorporated in 1908, the community began its transformation into the popular port it is today.

One of the finest golf courses in America in the early 1900s was the revered Pinehurst No. 2, designed by the legendary Donald Ross and first opened in 1907. Physically and mentally demanding, the course gave players options on every hole and required them to envision and execute recovery shots from the sandy perimeters and the pine forests as well as think creatively around the intricate greens. As a result, No. 2 became a favorite of the nation's top amateurs and professionals. Unfortunately, a modernization of the course over the last four decades stripped it of much of its character. In The Golden Age of Pinehurst, Lee Pace chronicles the breathtaking restoration of No. 2 from its recent slick and monochromatic presentation back to a natural potpourri of hardpan sand, wire grass, and Sandhills pine needles. The restored No. 2--accessible for amateur play, yet challenging enough for the professional--once again stands apart for its beauty, strategic appeal, and Old World flavor.
