From revered links, like St Andrews, to hidden gems, like Casa De Campo in the Dominican Republic, this beautifully designed and illustrated guide covers the seminal and most architecturally brilliant courses. Stunningly designed feature pages provide a thorough understanding of the golfing scene throughout the world. There are also maps showing locations of key clubs, plus sumptuous computer-generated illustrations of each course, filled with impressive detail, and "cutaways" of signature holes.

Written by the world's leading authorities on golf course architecture,The World Atlas of Golf paperback edition continues the tradition of this well-respected and best-selling title and is the only guide that any lover of the game will need. The greatest courses of the world are waiting to be explored!
