Golfshake Podcast #44: Ed Hodge, Gleneagles, Golf in Perthshire

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 09 Sep 2019 | Comments

Author Ed Hodge joins Kieran Clark on the new Golfshake Podcast to take a closer look at the rich history behind Gleneagles, the venue of the 2019 Solheim Cup. 

Ed's acclaimed book Jewel in the Glen charts the long story of the game on this magnificent estate, which is renowned for its three courses; the King's, Queen's, and PGA Centenary that also served as host of the Ryder Cup in 2014. 

Discussing the inspiration behind the book and the legacy of Gleneagles, Kieran and Ed also reflect on the remarkable region of Perthshire - an area they both know well - and what it can offer golfers; stunning courses, breathtaking scenery, and tranquility in the heart of Scotland.
