Overview

When it comes to golf course design, Robert Muir Graves and Geoffrey S. Cornish are true masters. Over the past few decades, they have produced every type of course imaginable: long and short, entry level and upscale, courses built on ocean bluffs and swamps, courses located in the United States and around the world. Now, drawing on this vast experience and their popular golf course design seminars held at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and nationwide for the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, Graves and Cornish share a wealth of expertise on all aspects of design and construction in this outstanding book.

Golf Course Design covers all of the major historic, aesthetic, business, and technical issues of the subject— from course layout, hole design, drainage, irrigation, and turf-grass selection to planning, financing, construction, and environmental considerations.
