Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"A seminal work that includes data on all then known golf course architects and their work. It features architect bios, a textural history of the profession, as well as a listing of courses worldwide. Its popularity was in part due to a golfers yearning to know who had designed a course he or she had played. Co-author Whitten went on to become the celebrated architecture Editor of Golf Digest." p. 59
