Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"An update of The Golf Course with additional text, new architects, updated course lists and biographies, professionally organized master course list and useful appendices. The best single reference source for the industry, with an accumulation of information not available elsewhere. A cornerstone of the golf course architecture library." p. 59

Quotable Quotes:"The feast of the 1920s and famine that followed in the 1930s clearly demonstrated to architects that the most magnificently designed course would not remain magnificent for very long when adequate funds were not available for upkeep."
