As this appropriately short book hopefully attests, the diversity of golf’s playing fields never ceases to amaze.
…who say’s size matters!?
As for many of the great classical and contemporary architects, writing has offered a way to express my views on golf course design, critique distinctive golf holes, and to reflect on the state of the industry.
