First published in 1976, The World Atlas of Golf was the first book to take a global view of the sport and the history and architects of course design. Now, over 30 years later, it's better than ever. Completely new text has been written by an expert panel comprising course designers, ex-tour Pros, leading journalists and commentators from around the globe. The book covers the courses that are seminal to the history of the sport together with those that simply demonstrate architectural brilliance. Sumptuous computer-generated artworks accompany the details of each course, illustrating their features in impressive detail, while 'cut-away' illustrations of signature holes highlight their particular challenges and show the course architect's ingenuity. With feature pages that provide a thorough understanding of the golfing scene in every part of the world and maps showing the locations of key clubs, this is the book that set the benchmark in golf publishing.
