Gordon G Simmonds, author of The Walker Cup 1922-2023, Golf’s Finest Contest (Centenary Edition)

We are delighted to be able to offer some really special events at Nairn Golf Club which is generously sponsoring the festival this year.

Enjoy a lively and informative talk by Gordon G Simmonds, on his definitive publication about this prestigious and often closely contested amateur competition, played between teams from the US and Great Britain and Ireland bi-annually since 1922. First published in 2000, and described as ‘a breathtakingly accomplished history and reference book’ (Golf Letter), this is the 3rd edition of this popular book which was produced to celebrate the centenary match which took place at St. Andrews last September. Simmonds has fully refreshed his history, including hundreds of extra photographs, new forewords from Peter McEvoy and Fred Ridley, up to date statistics and additional reports for the matches played between 2005 and 2023. The book has been published for The R&A by Grant Books Ltd.
