  • where early golf was played and how and why it developed across Scotland in two chapters
  • an analysis of the golf course geology including links, parkland and how these were created
  • classifications and details of present golf courses including a general summary of facts and figures and detailed explanation of the courses divided up into four different regions of Scotland in five chapters
