A unique and indispensable book for golfers, The Architects of Golf, now in a totally redesigned and updated edition, is really two books in one. The first section is a history of the golf course and how its design evolved from the first seaside courses in Scotland to the present innovative American designs in which earth, water, and sand are molded in ways that leave the original terrain completely altered. The brief biographies in the second section offer a complete listing of all the important course architects of the past and present and commentaries on how their designs have influenced the game- also listed are all the courses they originated or designed. The third section of the book provides a complete listing of more than 12,000 courses throughout the world and of the architects who designed them.
