Synopsis: "The 19th Hole" examines the design of many of the world's great golf clubhouses. It's part of the "IMAGES" series of titles that looks exclusively at world-best practice in architecture. The book is a photographic feast of the often-sumptuous clubhouse fit-outs that accompanies golfing at these illustrious courses. This book is endorsed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who names author Richard Diedrich in his foreword as possibly the only person he has ever met who truly understands the synergy that must coexist between golf courses and their clubhouses.Nicklaus and Diedrich paired up more than 25 years ago to design many of the world's newest and most prestigious clubs. Many of the world's most established and legendary courses are featured, including the Augusta National Golf Club, the Winged Foot Golf Club and the Congressional Country Club, to name a few. What makes this book outstanding, however, is its presentation of many new clubs that are destined to rank among the world's legendary clubs. These include 40 recently designed and built clubs in the United States that set the standard for designing clubs around the world, which is appropriate when it is considered that more than half of the world's 32,000 golf courses can be found within the United States.
