Overview

The Art of Golf Design
As classic golf course design enjoys a renaissance, so does the art devoted to celebrating golf’s beautiful landscapes. Leading the way are Michael G. Miller and Geoff Shackelford, who have combined their love of golf and art in The Art of Golf Design. Noted for their devotion to celebrating imaginative design by the game’s master architects, Miller’s vibrant landscapes are contrasted by Shackelford’s provocative essays on all aspects of golf. With many of miller’s images taking us back to the early days of course’s existence—often when the designs were in their purest form—readers can step back in time to experience the beauty of masterpieces such as Cypress Point, Pine Valley, Augusta National, Pebble Beach, Merion, Winged Foot, The National Golf Links of America, Mid-Ocean, Sunningdale, Pinehurst #2, Kingston Heath, Riviera, Bethpage, Baltimore, and Pasatiempo. Miller also presents modern interpretations of some of the world’s favorite designs, including the remarkable Sand Hills.

With Miller’s landscapes as a backdrop, Shackelford’s essays include “What Is Art in Golf Architecture,” “Genuine Variety,” “Temptation,” “What Is Strategy,” “Sunken Pits with Raised Faces,” “Luck and Wind,” “What Happened to the Revolution,” “Progress Dearly Bought” and “To Frame or Not to Frame?” Sidebars include several long lost commentaries by H.S. Colt, Max Behr, Robert Hunter, Bernard Darwin, and Tom Simpson, who each campaigned for an artistic approach to golf architecture. The Art of Golf Design provides the ultimate meeting ground for enthusiasts of golf art and architecture.
