Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"An enjoyable and exceedingly well-written book, this look at the career of the ninety year old course architect reveals not only the breadth and quality of his work, but the personality and good nature of the man himself. It catalogs many great contributions to the game, environment and society by this person who remained almost unheralded, although he was an influential president and longtime member of the ASGCA." p. 94
