Abstract:"In graphic form and text, this book will examine golf holes, the literal building blocks of golf, and introduce how they are linked together to form a course. The first were created by nature and discoverd by golfers. Whether sand or water, hazard or heroic carry, hill or depression, the natural topography of the Scottish links held all the components of a golf hole. As generation after generation played game after game, the most exciting routes for the hole eventually became established." Includes: Architecture and art -- The nature of golf course design -- Golf holes are compositions -- The tradition of replicating classic golf holes -- Broad criteria for classic golf holes -- Specific features of classic golf holes -- The classic golf holes
