Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"Foreword by G.S. Cornish. Tillinghast offers his impressions of golf in Mexico, California, San Antonio, Tulsa, Puget Sound, the Adirondacks, Michigan and many locales in between. He lets his opinions fly on trees, lengthy par 3's, winter greens, teeing grounds, sand pits, green committees and blind holes. This is the final volume of a trilogy of the writings of this truly great architect. Edited by Wolffe, Wolffe and Trebus, the trilogy is immensely significant to course design." p. 104
