A Golfer’s Travels with Peter Alliss – the illustrated book

A Golfer’s Travels with Peter Alliss takes us on a spectacular tour around the world. From the wilds of Northern Scotland through the arid deserts of Arizona to the mountains of South Africa and beyond, Alliss invites world-famous celebrities to join him on courses set in exotic locations.

HRH The Duke of York partners him at Royal Dornoch, actor Gene Hackman takes his clubs to New Mexico and former President F W de Klerk demonstrates his competitiveness in South Africa. The American rock band Hootie and the Blowfish swing through Hawaii and Dame Kiri te Kanawa puts down her clubs to help deliver the post on the little Loch Lomond mail boat.

The book also takes us beyond the game itself and its great courses as Peter Alliss and James Mossop interview and observe their guests, and the celebrities reveal a rarely seen side of themselves, often with passion and humour. Politics, culture and history are frequently interwoven, with the Duke of York talking at length about his fascination with the ancient game and former astronaut Admiral Alan Shepard giving a colourful account of that moment when he stood on the moon and looked back at planet Earth.
