Fascinating, 14 octobre 1999
Par Angel Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a fascinating book for any golf enthusiast or historian, as well as an essential practical resource for anyone actively involved in golf course design, construction and maintenance.
The design process progresses from the green to the individual hole to the entire course. Detailed technical information is well integrated with aesthetic and theoretical concepts making the entire book interesting & readable.
The book is packed with color photos of individual holes to illustrate design concepts, sites under construction and wonderful historical documents. The technical drawings & plans are well done and very useful.
This book is a great example of making a technical manual a joy to read. Any golfer who appreciates the background of the course he or she is playing on will love it.

All does not read well that starts well and ends well 11 août 2000
Par GDC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Starts off very well with the hope that it will get more technical but instead becomes more theoretical in areas such as aesthetics and fine art, areas which the author seems to not have a background in. ie, his discussion of perception, symmetry and balance etc. If you can skip the middle chapters its not bad but again I had hoped for more technical insights. Perhaps I needed a book on golf course construction. I just assumed from architecture courses that construction issues and recommendations as well as more detail of layout relative to game play would be discussed.

Comprehensive overview of designing and building courses 21 décembre 1997
Par dsgntech@tiac.net - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Simply an outstanding look at the fascinating process of taking a piece of land and sculpting a chapmionship layout. A step-by-step process that details the many intricacies and disciplines involved in creating a golf course. Any golfer will more fully appreciate the not only what they see on a course, but also what they "don't" see. The photos and illustrations are plentiful and precise in leading one through each phase of construction. Must reading for an serious student of the game. Kevin Burke
Really useful 30 avril 2013

It's difficult to find a golf course architecture book that was written in the past 5 or 10 years. And while this book is not current, it's still relevant.
A Good Inexpensive Book on the Subject 28 février 2013
Par John Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Even though it was published in the '90's, it is a good book for the price (a whopping $1.99 plus shipping). The author covers most aspects of Golf Course Design and Architecture from the beginning of the game to current thinking. Easy to follow with lots of illustrations, I'd recommend this book to any serious golfer or anyone beginning their study of the subject.
