This fully revised and updated edition includes a new chapter on the 2014 Ryder Cup.

‘I have always thought Gleneagles is one of the greatest places in the world to play golf’ – Jack Nicklaus

The Ryder Cup came back to its spiritual home. The 40th staging of golf’s showpiece team event returned to Gleneagles – where it effectively all began. Tracing the history of the Ryder Cup back to that famous forerunner match at Gleneagles in 1921, this book intertwines the histories of the coveted prize with the five-star resort’s own rich heritage, on and off the course. Through a series of over 80 in-depth interviews with an array of national and international celebrities, including Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Sir Jackie Stewart, Andy Murray and Stephen Hendry, Jewel in the Glen reveals what the Ryder Cup and Gleneagles means to them while examining the impact of the tournament on the local community and the wider Scottish society, culture, and economy.
