Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1900 and 1948, Scottish-born Donald Ross designed over 400 golf courses in the U.S. and Canada, among them the world famous Pinehurst Number 2 in North Carolina. Ross was also a championship player and a master of technique, style, and form. Since his death in 1948, Ross's guiding principles of play have only grown in influence. For many, Ross's game--a strict but fair balance of risk and reward--is the only game. Here, Michael Fay, cofounder of the Donald Ross Society, takes the reader on a walk through 18 of Ross's masterfully designed holes chosen from courses across the U.S., providing a wealth of inspiration, a course in enjoying the purity of traditional golf, and practical advice on how best to play these courses for the golfer at all levels of expertise. With more than 175 newly commissioned and archival photographs, this is a book for anyone who has ever been touched by the sport and its rich history, a book that will compel you to grab your clubs and head toward the nearest course with new found admiration for the game's challenges and how to confront them.<BR>
