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 specifications. 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 340 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.

New Content

All the stories and profiles have been updated to include the latest information about clubs and personalities that are profiled with over 100 new COLOR photographs throughout the book.

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

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 New Author’s Edition

The Author’s Edition of only 100 signed and numbered books with a leather bound cover will be available to the discriminating book collector who loves an exquisite presentation as well as a good read.
