Ecco are known for the awesome quality of their leather. The are the only golf brand who control the quality of the leather from farming it all the way to the tanning process and then making the shoes themselves in their own factories. So it’s an unusual move when they bring out a leather free golf shoe. But golf footwear is evolving, and not everyone wants a heavy leather golf shoe.  But wait, there is more…

Milngavie Golf Club, Scotland

Milngavie Golf Club dates back to 1895, to a time when golf course construction in Scotland was booming. Indeed, a glance at the record books will show there were no fewer than six other courses opened that same year.

The St Andrews professional Willie Auchterlonie (who won the Open two years earlier) and his older brother Laurie (who would go on to claim the US Open title in 1902), laid out the course and it took them no more than a day to peg out a 9-hole circuit.

The Auchterlonies were of the opinion that the club actually had enough land to accommodate a full 18-hole course and so the number of holes in play was quickly doubled, producing the layout that remains in play today. (more…)

Puma Ignite Disc

Disc golf for your feet

Shared from GolfPunk

As a kid I wanted Air Max, Pumps, and Puma Discs. I loved the little gizmo on the front, because laces were so, so, vintage. Who wanted to tie a lace, when you could twist a disc? And while it’s now 2016, and the vast majority of us are still using archaic laces to tighten our shoes, we no longer have to do so.

I still love my Puma Discs today, and even now I’ve got pair that I put on when I’m feeling extra lazy. Over the years I’ve said to Puma they should bring out a Disc golf shoe. I don’t think they listened to me, but someone at the company finally came to the same conclusion. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #234 (Playing Through: Modern Golf’s Most Iconic Players and Moments)

Jul 19th
2016

41M3qgj7eQLThe game of golf has been witness to dramatic change since the early 1980s. Technology has relegated polished wooden drivers and wound balls covered with balata to the dustbin of history.

The world’s great courses have been stretched unfathomable lengths to counter the game’s modern champions and the distances they hit the ball. In the end, though, it still comes down to the players.

Jim Moriarty has focused his attention on the glory, sacrifice, success, and despair of these champions. In Playing Through, he captures the essence of this most recent, most transformative chapter in golf’s long history.

He writes of the last great rivalry: Jack Nicklaus versus Tom Watson; the rise of the European juggernaut with Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo; the Ryder Cup spectacles of 1999 and 2012 and the romance of team golf; the tragic loss of Payne Stewart and Ballesteros, both gone too soon; the emergence of the Australians, South Africans, South Americans, and Pacific Rim players in the Presidents Cup; and the man who ruled golf, Tiger Woods. But wait, there’s more…

2016

The Island Golf Club, founded in 1890, is a traditional private members’ golf club with a proud history of upholding the best traditions of amateur golf. Overlooked by the North County Dublin village of Malahide, the links is located in some of the most stunning dunes on the east coast of Ireland. The club is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland and the third oldest in Dublin. The Island was ranked 13th in Golf Digest Ireland’s Top 100 Courses in 2016.

The Island is a traditional links in splendid isolation surrounded by the Irish Sea, Donabate beach and the Broadmoor estuary. Undoubtedly one of the most underrated links courses in Ireland, The Island has been selected to host the Irish qualifying section of the British Open from 2005-2010.

Although there are several short par-4s, the Island always presents a challenge to find the fairway from the tee and then to find the target. A variety of shots are required and the wind will add to the difficulty. But wait, there’s more
