There can be no doubt about the interest which the Arbory project created, with several radio, and T.V Broadcasts from the course, with phone calls from people like Sir Sean Connery, Ben Crenshaw etc. The Scottish press were also in on the act with numerous articles in the Daily Record, Scotsman, Herald etc. The course re-construction took four years, with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, little money, no machinery, but loads of back breaking work and enthusiasm. Two brothers with a common love for the game, a golf course which almost ripped them apart, and a book which ( ten years on ) brought them back together again. ( What a Read ! )

A team from Sky television came to Arbory and filmed a programme for the Lonely Planet series.
