Golf is one of the few sports where the average player can walk in the footsteps of the great and encounter the same challenges - that do-or-die shot over water, that curling putt to become Open champion. Many of the game's most memorable moments have taken place on the courses in this book, and many of those courses welcome viviting golfers.
Includes Open Championship venues St Andrews, Royal Birkdale and Turnberry; the home of the US Masters, Augusta; and past and future Ryder Cup venues The Belfry, Kiawah Island, Valderrama and Celtic Manor.
Full-colour maps have been prepared using the latest technology, enabling the reader to follow course descriptions in detail.
Photographs by some of the world's great golf photographers encapsulate the beauty and atmosphere of each course perfectly. These are truly handsome courses.
The author's wide golfing experience allows him to write objectively about each course, including it's history, design and playing characteristics as well as a host of non-golfing essentials.
