Described as "the modern bible of golf architecture," this text distills Dr. Hurdzan's 30 years of knowledge and experience into one source. Beautifully illustrated with 326 color photographs, and 80 course maps and drawings, it chronicles all facets of designing, building, renovating and restoring a golf course.

This single source provides a wealth of understandable and useful information on golf architecture from its earliest beginnings with Old Tom Morris to modern architectural design. Its readable style and varied illustrations make it a perfect reference for golf enthusiasts, green committees, green chairman, builders and developers, as well as superintendents, golf professionals and course managers.

Dr. Hurdzan reveals both the art and science of golf course architecture, and takes you inside the designer's mind as he leads you through each step in designing a golf green, golf hole and golf course. Dr. Hurdzan explains the roots of ugliness and sources of beauty, how the landscape communicates, and the recreational process that inexorably links the golfer to the golf course.

Golf Course Architecture is also practical in nature. It explains tee, green and bunker construction, turfgrass establishment ad maturation, as well as drainage and irrigation trends and techniques. Dr. Hurdzan is refreshingly frank in his discussion of golf and the environment and golf course improvement and restoration.

Recognized by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America for its value to the profession, profits from this timeless text will support the GCSAA Foundation for its valuable support of research, scholarship, historical preservation and environmental awareness. If the golf course is important to you this book is must reading.
