It's the first true atlas for golfers-a comprehensive collection of maps, charts, records, course cards, and little-known facts. More than 70 of the world's greatest golf courses are covered, including the most challenging holes (the Eighth at Pebble Beach, the greens of Oakmont), as well as the most memorable performances. Lavish color photos of the courses, from aerial views to close-ups of places rarely seen by the public, come with stories about their designers and creation. A unique history of the science of golf course construction becomes a page-turning narrative that reveals how even ordinary golfers can conquer their favorite course's most fiendish blind holes, hidden bunkers, and rugged natural terrain.
