Episode 120: TGH 120: A Historic Trip to Scotland

The Society of Golf Historians is flying to Scotland in August of 2025 and we want you to join us!

Today on the show we are joined by the President and Co-Founder of PerryGolf, Gordon Dalgleish, who shares the early history of PerryGolf and how it was one of the early pioneers in the golf travel industry.

Gary and I then pivot to discuss The Society of Golf Historians Trip to Scotland with Gary providing some color into some of the Open’s most famous venues.

The trip will be unlike any other – PerryGolf is scheduling the golf, hotels and travel accomodations and I am scheduling the extracurriculars which include walking tours of St Andrews, a live recording of the TalkinGolf History Podcast and some things I dont want to share in the media (but will be amazing).
