Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"This is a chronicle of the literature that has accompanied the remarkable evolution of course design in North America, with numerous footnotes, asides and clarifications. Published in part for the American Society of Golf Course Architects, it emphasizes the evolution of North American course design from the period when Scottish professionals and designers dubbed the process derogatively as 18 stakes on a Sunday afternoon to the contemporary age of multimillion dollar layouts by highly skilled and intensely dedicated young designers." p. 58-59
