Why is the NEW Terroir of Golf an elevated reading experience?


The New Look and Feel of the Book


Award Winning Book Designer

The new version of Terroir is designed by Chic Harper who brings a very sophisticated approach to book design that takes the reader on a journey of discovery. He is the winner of the British Golf Collectors Society’s Murdoch Medal 2019 and designer of the USGA’s Herbert Warren Wind Award winning books in 2008, 2015 and 2020 as well as designer of Murdoch Medal-winning books in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016.

High Quality Printer

Terroir will be printed and assembled at McAllister Litho Glasgow Ltd. to their exacting standards. They print for such esteemed organizations as the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and private clubs such as Royal Liverpool Golf Club and Glasgow Golf Club, the ninth oldest golf club in the world.

Superior Materials and Binding

The 352 text pages will be printed on 150gsm Arctic Silk paper, then folded, collated and sewn bound into the outer, hardback cover which will have a semi-gloss, anti-scuff, laminate finish.

Brand New and Updated Content


In some cases, stories have been enhanced to include more background of the founding of certain hotels, clubs, courses and locales.

All the stories and profiles have been updated to include the latest information about clubs and personalities that are profiled with 200 new color photographs throughout the book.

New historic imagery will be woven into the text of several stories, like the one about the Claret Jug, which also sheds light on how the Romans planted the first vines in Bordeaux during their empire-building days.

The book will have exquisite illustrated end papers, head and tail bands which provide added reinforcement and stability to the binding, and the silk ribbon marker.
