The Golf Courses of Great Britain & Ireland
Golfers from around the world dream of visiting and playing these courses. For golf lovers and history buffs alike The Golf Courses of Great Britain & Ireland will showcase the best courses of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
Charles Darwin’s grandson, Bernard Darwin, elevated sports journalism to an art form not seen before. Based on his historic book, The Golf Courses of the British Isles, this series will bring the courses he describes vividly to life, enhanced by interviews with champions past and present.
Bernard Darwin reinvented sports writing by describing the setting and competition with eloquence and style. While he wrote with grace and class he exhibited very little of it on the golf course. His tantrums were legendary.
The golf courses featured in the series include the iconic St Andrews in Scotland, Royal County Down, Muirfield, Aberdovey, Royal St George’s, Littlestone, Carnoustie and many more.
Using Darwin’s text as a narrative, the series will take the viewer on an emotional experience enriched with unique voices from the golf world.
