The Edict

(2007)
A Novel from the Beginnings of Golf
A novel by

 
In this colorful tale set in 1457 - the year the Scottish Parliament banned golf (in the first recorded reference to the game) - renowned golf architect Bob Cupp brings to life the origins of a pastime that has transfixed us for centuries.

In the Middle Ages, St. Andrews was famous for its cathedral, its university, and for the game developed out in the linkslands by bored shepherds using balls and clubs. One of these, Caeril Patersone, is sufficiently skilled to compete for the title of champion, but in this quest he must contend with not only his competition but also a conniving financier in league with a sordid nobleman, not to mention the ravishing girl they have enlisted to further their interests. The Edict is rich in history about both golf and the community that defined the sport-a delight for anyone ever touched by the magic of the game.
