More history no doubt will have been written by the time one consumes all the information in a new iPad app, “Golf History with Peter Alliss.” This app spans the game from Mary Queen of Scots and her passion for golf in the 1500s to Bobby Jones’ grand slam in 1930. The basic app is free, though to realize its full potential, in-app purchases are available, including those detailing the U.S. Open. the Open Championship and the Roots of American Golf. A value pack unlocking all content is available for $9.99, a modest price to pay, it seems, for so much history. Read More

Photography and the modern game of golf developed around the same time. Coincidence? Probably, but it was a fortuitous coincidence since we’ve been left with at least some photographic history of those early years. It’s likely that the largest and highest-quality collection of early golf photography is in the hands of Howard Schickler of Sarasota. Read More

Been playing this game since I was 4. Now I’m a golf coach and I absolutely love the game and this app. Shows really interesting facts about the game for a lifetime and goes in depth into the origins all the way up to now. A must have for golf fans. The only issue with it is at some points you have to pay for the content but other than that it’s awesome!
This is a beautiful app – top quality. Amazing content. It’s easy and simple to scroll through, and at the same time I can dig a little deeper. I just like the “feel” of it all. The cover flow of all the images is just terrific. I’ll come many times when I want to read a new story about some golfer or place I’d never heard of. I’m not a golfer, but I love history, old photographs and learning about people and their passions. The story of women is really interesting.
I really didn’t know what to expect when I downloaded this app, but was pleasantly surprised by the amazing number of stories and photographs of early golfers and the types of balls and clubs they used back then. I particularly love the slide shows on golf fashion and the section on women’s golf. Great way to impress your friends at the clubhouse…
