Overview

There are more than half a million golf holes in the world—and GOLF Magazine has picked the best, in The 500 World's Greatest Golf Holes.

More than six hundred lavish photographs complement anecdotal "biographies" and vital statistics of the holes deemed the best in the world by the magazine's editors and their panel of international experts. Readers will find out if their favorite holes made the cut by first turning to The Eighteen, representing the most respected and challenging holes—holes like the thirteenth at Augusta National. Next, they discover which are considered the top one hundred (no surprise that the eleventh at St. Andrews Old Course and the fifth at Pinehurst are included here). Finally, there is an all-inclusive gazetteer of all five hundred. A special section offers the Best of the Best—lists of holes by category, such as the most scenic, longest, best in Europe, hardest-to-putt greens, and so on.

This is the golf book for the passionate golfer and the armchair duffer alike.
