    Product Description:
    "Golf’s Grand Design," prepared as a companion volume to the PBS documentary of the same name, expands upon the information presented in the television program. Co-authored by Bob Cupp, one of America’s leading golf course designers, and Ron Whitten, Golf Digest’s longtime senior editor on golf architecture, the book features rare sketches and diagrams of golf holes—some never before published—by 34 past and present golf architects, including Alister MacKenzie, Pete Dye, Bill Coore, Ben Crenshaw, Tom Doak, Gil Hanse, Doug Carrick, Steve Smyers and David McLay Kidd. In each chapter, based upon one of the drawings, Cupp and Whitten explore a different facet of the course depicted and present unique perspectives into the craft and art of golf course architecture. These sketches are the vehicles by which design becomes grass. They are not AutoCAD plottings used to clear permits (full of technicalities practically indecipherable by everyday folks), but intimate, immediate and sometimes idiosyncratic streams of consciousness that are handed to a bulldozer operator, along with words of instruction, which become reality; the very crux of golf design. These drawings seldom survive; ending up as grocery lists, note pads or even shelf paper. But if one comes back to the designer after the fact - after the hole has been played and proclaimed fun, the drawings become treasures. Written in a lively conversational format, "Golf’s Grand Design" takes readers behind the scenes in the creation of many of America’s finest courses, from the modest-budget Bully Pulpit in North Dakota to the mega-budget Shadow Creek in Nevada. The authors retell the discovery of the land that became the groundbreaking Sand Hills Golf Club in Nebraska and relate the extensive process required to complete the environmentally-sensitive Liberty National in New Jersey. They take readers behind the scenes with Jack Nicklaus at work and at play, analyze what made Donald Ross and A.W. Tillinghast such great architects, offer insights into the little-known design talents of PGA Tour Hall of Famers Tom Kite and Tom Watson and pass along revelations regarding such famous holes as “The Cape” and “The Redan.” They conclude with a short discussion of the impact that technology has had on the world of golf. "Golf’s Grand Design" is intended for all who enjoy golf or who, by virtue of these stories, might consider the game. It provides a fresh approach to understanding and appreciating good golf architecture. It will certainly be one of those books with a long shelf life because its content is not trendy but factual. It is the story of American golf and a living description of the creative process of a game that somehow worked its way into our very souls.

    • Great product!
    Product Description:

    Behind every golf hole lies an influence on every golfer's game that few golfers ever contemplate: the course architect. Why a hole dog-legs left and not right, why bunkers end up where they are, the length of a hole, the view from the tee--all these factors and many more are the result of choices made by the golf architect to challenge, and sometimes intimidate, any golfer's game.

    Tom Doak, one of America's youngest and most successful golf architects, here discusses his craft and explains the strategies behind a golf architect's decisions. Knowing why a course is laid out is critical to how the course should be played. Knowledgeable golfers and beginners alike will find The Anatomy of a Golf Course fascinating--and stroke saving--reading.

    Product Description:
    The tests a golfer faces on the course are the direct result of the challenges originally faced by the golf course architect, whether they be complicated terrain, forces of nature, budget limitations, demanding developers, or the difficult task of balancing the practical scientific needs of a golf course with the architect’s creative instincts.

    Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects offers readers behind-the-scenes tales from America’s master architects themselves in their own words. Elite designers such as Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Rees Jones, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Arthur Hills, Arnold Palmer, and others share their personal anecdotes related to the creation of some of the world’s most famous courses: from run-ins with snakes to bulldozers sinking in quicksand, to holes created by accident, such as the famed island green 17th at the TPC at Sawgrass.

    Published in collaboration with the prestigious American Society of Golf Course Architects, Secrets of the Great Golf Course Architects includes more than 150 beautiful full-color photographs and dozens of drawings and course blueprints, making this a first of its kind insider’s look at golf course architecture sure to become a key addition to the libraries of all golfers with an appreciation for the courses they play.
