    DescriptionGolf course construction continues to burgeon in the United States, Asia, and around the world. This book meets the needs of practicing landscape architects and other practicing professionals involved in the design or re-design of golf courses. Each classic hole is described in terms relevant to the designer including its basic design, its maintenance, and its impact on the golfer's game. Three samples accompany each classic hole illustrating varying replications and how those replications were appropriated for the new course. Graves and Cornish are two of the most famous and respected golf course architects in the United States, who have designed or remodeled a combined 1,000+ courses, taught more than 60 seminars on golf course design, and are both past presidents of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.

    Review quote
    "the book uses photographs and diagrams generously to illustrate the various classic golf holes." (Landscape Architecture, May 2003)
    Back cover copy
    "Bob and Geoff are two of the grand old men of the design fraternity. After several years of research and the evaluation of thousands of golf holes, they have put before us their findings. After reading this book, we'll all wonder if our favorite holes fit one of the classic models. For many, reading this book will be the beginning of a wonderful journey of discovery." --From the Foreword by Damian Pascuzzo, Past President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects
    Flap copy
    Through historical research and precise artwork, the legendary team of Robert Muir Graves and Geoffrey Cornish search their vast experience and design talents to provide coverage of classic holes, their components, and their replicas. Classic Golf Hole Design presents unique golf holes along with real-world examples of how designers have adapted them to other courses around the world. Descriptions and illustrations of each hole bring to life the technical science and aesthetic craft of adaptation. Addressing the hole's basic design and its impact on the golfer's game, golf holes are described with the designer in mind. Graves and Cornish enrich their expert research and presentation with surefooted methods and strategies for linking classic golf hole adaptations into a circuit of eighteen holes to show how a course is formed. The book explores a multitude of courses, hundreds of golf holes, and countless features found on links that have withstood the test of time. Complete with hundreds of photographs and drawings, Classic Golf Hole Design captures the liveliness and enthusiasm that have helped keep Graves and Cornish among the most active in their profession. This book is an inspiration to those on a quest for excellence in golf course design and adds another dimension to the golfer's understanding of the game that is "magic" to so many.
