Annotation from
Golf Course Design, by Geoffrey S. Cornish and Michael J. Hurdzan:
"Scanning this book, one may conclude that it is a love story concerning course architects Alice and Pete Dye, a husband and wife team, in a field where that is not unusual. Each of the Dyes is a member of the ASGCA and a past president of that prestigious organization. Studying the book, one concludes that it is a remarkable autobiography by a remarkable person in a remarkable profession. Not incidentally, Alice and Pete's two sons, Perry and P.B., are members of the ASGCA and creative designers. Paul Crichton, senior publicist of HarperCollins says Dye has written the perfect gift book. We agree and add that it is an extra special contribution to the profession of course architecture." p. 67
