The latest edition of your favourite independent golf journal has arrived. In issue #7, we kick off with a foray into the world of professional golf, as Robert Lusetich explains how the origins of LIV Golf can be found in, of all places, 1970s Australian cricket. It is a remarkable study into the monstrous ego of a billionaire television mogul and the complacency of those who ruled a sport for decades—sound familiar?
McKellar excels at exploring the forgotten corners of the golf landscape, and in this issue, Lawrence Donegan discovers a truly wild one in the jungles of Oahu. In the 1990s, Ko’olau was a golf magazine staple — celebrated for its tropical beauty and notorious for its brutal difficulty. Then it seemed to fall off the edge of the earth. What happened? Our man in Hawaii meets the motorcycle-riding, yoga-obsessed golf pro fighting to save what remains of Ko’olau from the encroaching forest.
On the other side of the world, while North Berwick may not exactly be a hidden gem anymore, we wanted to show it in a new light, commissioning famed Scottish photographer Murdo MacLeod to show us one of golf’s best-loved towns through his eyes.
For Golden Age architecture aficionados, our twin pieces on the global career of Charles Hugh Alison are must-reads. No architect is more revered in Japan, and Hal Phillips traces the complex evolution of the Alison style in that golf-mad nation
In the second, Chicago radiologist Stephen Zivin ;pays a visit to Royal Hague Golf Club, where his casual curiosity about the club’s history gradually revealed a World War II drama of the first order. This will be one of the best golf-related stories you read in 2023.
