Author Gary Sutherland will be talking about his new book ‘Golf on the Rocks: A Journey Round Scotland’s Island Courses’

Monday 6th June at 7pm - East Lothian Libraries at Longniddry Golf Club - Free Event

Author Gary Sutherland will be talking about his new book Golf on the rocks: A journey round Scotland's island courses

Gary was a lapsed golfer, until he acquired his late dad's putter. After studying a crumpled golf map of Scotland, Gary decided to embark on a voyage. His target was to play 18 rounds of golf on 18 Scottish islands in honour of his dad.

From the Northern Isles to the Outer Hebrides, in the Harris hail and Arran sunshine, this is a life affirming tale of remembrance and discovery, it's about having a laugh and holding on to what's dear, and it's about a putter with magical qualities...

"A heart warming tale of hooks, slices, ferries, fairways and friendship that'll make you want to pick up a golf club and phone your dad" Charlie Connelly, author of Attention All Shipping.

Free Entry - You need not be a club member.

To reserve your place, call Longniddry Library on 01875 852735 or email longniddry.library@eastlothian.gov.uk
