Overview

Through historical research and precise artwork, the legendary team of Robert Muir Graves and Geoffrey Cornish search their vast experience and design talents to provide coverage of classic holes, their components, and their replicas. Classic Golf Hole Design presents unique golf holes along with real-world examples of how designers have adapted them to other courses around the world. Descriptions and illustrations of each hole bring to life the technical science and aesthetic craft of adaptation. Addressing the hole's basic design and its impact on the golfer's game, golf holes are described with the designer in mind.

Graves and Cornish enrich their expert research and presentation with surefooted methods and strategies for linking classic golf hole adaptations into a circuit of eighteen holes to show how a course is formed. The book explores a multitude of courses, hundreds of golf holes, and countless features found on links that have withstood the test of time.

Complete with hundreds of photographs and drawings, Classic Golf Hole Design captures the liveliness and enthusiasm that have helped keep Graves and Cornish among the most active in their profession. This book is an inspiration to those on a quest for excellence in golf course design and adds another dimension to the golfer's understanding of the game that is "magic" to so many.
