  • Golf's Grand Design: The Evolution of Golf Architecture in America

    "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 a...

  • The Anatomy of a Golf Course: The Art of Golf Architecture

    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.

  • Making the Masters: Bobby Jones and the Birth of America's Greatest Golf Tournament

    The origin story of the most monumental golf event in the world.Held the second weekend in April each year since 1934, the Masters is the world’s most prestigious golf tournament and most-watched tournament on television. Tickets are in such demand that even the waiting list is closed, and players value the title above all others. In Making the Masters, award-winning golf writer David Barrett focuses his attention on how the Masters was conceived, how it got off the ground in 1934, and how it fully established itself in 1935.The key figure in the tournament’s creation and success was Bobby Jones, who was a living legend after winning the Grand Slam in 1930 and immediately retiring at the age of twenty-eight. He went on to found Augusta National and sought a high-profile tournament for his new course. But nearly as important was Clifford Roberts, a banker friend of Jones who not only embraced Jones’s vision, but also became his right-hand man in working to bring that vision to reality.Barrett explores how Jones and Roberts built the Masters from scratch, creating a golf institution embellished by the often surprising details of what that entailed as they were trying to establish a golf club and golf tournament in tough economic times. It also vividly chronicles the events of...
