Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"These prolific architects have designed hundreds of courses and taught thousands of people what they have learned. Each had fifty years or more of work in the field. Used as a textbook by Harvard Universitys Continuing Education Program, this widely distributed treatise has been embraced by other college-level programs as a textbook." p. 72

Quotable Quotes:"In golf, there are no rigid dimensions and no standard playing fields. Everyone who has ever designed a golf course (indeed, anyone who plays the game) has had his or her own ideas about how it should be done. The resulting variety of courses is one of many reasons that golf is such a fascinating and durable pastime and that its architecture is one of the most intriguing of all professions."
