Peter made his first appearance in the Ryder Cup in 1953. Since then he’s become the voice of golf, helped design 50 courses and written 20 books - the latest on the game’s therapeutic qualities for grumpy old men. As in his theatre show, Peter is delighted to field questions from the audience.


Eight times a Ryder Cup player and twice Captain of the Professional Golfers’ Association, Peter is past President of both the British Greenkeepers’ Association and the Women’s PGA. During his career he won three PGA Titles, two Spanish Opens, the Italian, Portuguese and Brazilian titles plus twenty other European victories.

Peter is recognised around the world for his television commentaries. Apart from his BBC commitments, which include Pro-Celebrity Golf and A Round with Alliss, he also commentates for ABC on the US Open, USPGA and other US Tour and Senior events. The world of television has also taken him as far afield as Canada, Australia and Hong Kong.

He has been involved in golf course design for the last 25 years. Projects in partnership with Dave Thomas included The Belfry, The Seve Club in Japan, La Baule in Brittany, the Landsdowne course at Blairgowrie and Old Thorns in Hampshire. Other notable courses include Herons Reach, Blackpool and Brocket Hall: in all, Peter has been involved in the design of over sixty courses.

He has written 20 books - the latest on the game’s therapeutic qualities for grumpy old men. As in his theatre show, Peter is delighted to field questions from the audience.
