Issue 6

McKellar returns to the scene with a stellar new lineup that’s marked by the depth and originality our readers have come to expect. Our cover story is a prime example of these qualities. Journalist Dani Garavelli and photographer Murdo MacLeod scored an exclusive coup, taking readers inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, showing a Muirfield beginning to change with the times.
Elsewhere in the issue, Scott Michaux lands an interview with the PGA Tour’s Roberto Castro. We also welcome writers from much further afield, as Tel Aviv-based journalist Itay Goder explores the condition of Israel’s marginalized Ethiopian community through the surprising lens of golf.
Turning to the journal’s regular contributors, we include new work from Geoff Shackelford, who applies his forceful voice to a subject close to his heart—the singularity of the Old Course. In “The Selector”, John Huggan profiles the ultimate establishment figure in British golf during the last century. And Anthony Pioppi brings his top-notch research skills to unearth a long-lost design from the founding father of American golf architecture — Charles Blair Macdonald.
These are just a handful of the highlights from yet another loaded issue of McKellar. If you’re a fan of high-quality, independent golf journalism, you won’t want to miss it.
