Views from the Tee

Every golfer knows . . .

. . . that if you are getting bored while waiting for a four-ball to move on, the best course of action is to cast your eye around and enjoy the surrounding panorama.  David Shaw Stewart is an oft-frustrated golfer who has used the time wisely to illustrate some of the most fun, interesting and challenging courses in Britain and Ireland. The resulting thoughts and watercolours are collected here, in a colourful tour round the finest fairways.

David Shaw Stewart is a passionate golfer and artist. He swung his first club at Traigh Golf Course and now has the privilege of jointly owning and maintaining this spectacular nine hole links.

The watercolours include many of the renowned and classic courses to be found across the UK & Ireland, such as Muirfield, Prestwick, St Andrews and Portmarnock.  However, David is a discerning golfer and as owner of Traigh he is equally appreciative of Golf in the Wild – consequently and perhaps unsurprisingly, Views from the Tee includes Allendale.

This nicely produced hardback book is available from Robin Down  (and from the clubhouse next year) at £9.99 with £3.50 of every sale going to the club.
