This is the story of couple from the American suburbs who came to visit a rural Scottish community and stayed to make it their home. It includes a warm and affectionate portrait of the 'cradle of golf'. It describes a rich cast of characters and a host of adventures on and off the links. In 1983, George Peper was playing the eighteenth hole on the Old Course at St Andrews when he hit his ball so far to the right that he never found it. But he did spot a For Sale sign outside a house bordering the fairway. Two months later he and his wife Libby completed the purchase of 9A Gibson Place. But it was not until 2003, when George gave up his job in New York, that the couple could move to St Andrews for what they originally expected to be a two-year interlude. This is the story of how they found themselves becoming so much a part of St Andrews and its golfing community that, by the time they were scheduled to sell their house and pocket the anticipated profit, they could not bear to leave a place that had become their home. It is much more than just another golf book, for although it recounts George's adventures on St Andrews links, it also paints a warm and affectionate portrait of a small rural community in Scotland, with its many colourful characters, and the way in which two suburbanite Americans found themselves won over to a new and different way of life.
