HASH(0x9e732480) out of 5 stars The Bible is no longer in print! June 23 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
For anyone who is interested in golf course architecture, this book is a must for your library. Contains a complete index (a continuous work-in-process) of architects and their courses. Essentially every course in the world (including those which are no longer in existance), is listed including its location, date of orgin and the architects who created it also the provider of any known substantial (professional) renovation work. It must take a tremendous effort for the authors to keep this book up to date. I hope the fact that this book is no longer in print indicates that the authors are hard at work. If you do not have a copy find one, if you have to go the the library and photocopy theirs (but bring a stack of dimes its very long).
HASH(0x9e5b63f0) out of 5 stars Inside Baseball for the Golf Architecture Junkie Jan. 19 2015
By Valuable Book - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Comprehensive review of designers of golf courses. The back section includes a biography, picture and a list of courses designed by the architect which is a fabulous reference for the golf architecture junkie. The first third of the book is a history of the styles of architecture and highlights in detail architects like Pete Dye and Robert Trent Jones.
HASH(0x9fb000b4) out of 5 stars Golf Architecture Bible March 18 2012
By S. Sawyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For all the golf architecture geeks out there. Great directory of golf architects and courses. Somewhat out of date so missing the last couple decades of development but still a great historical reference.
