Jones has designed or remodelled more than 200 award-winning golf courses around the world and has been called the 'father of modern environmental golf course architecture'.From Library Journal:
A time-honored adage of the sports world is that fundamentals come from the ground up, and Golf by Design literally exemplifies this statement. The author, an internationally acclaimed golf course architect, has produced a how-to work of considerable technical and artistic merit. The result is a well-written golfing masterpiece. Included are discussions of golf as analogous to chess and pool, as well as instructional line drawings that simplify the most difficult scenarios. Spectacular color photographs of 60 of the world's most challenging courses further enhance this one-of-a-kind guide that is likely to become a classic. Highly recommended for most public libraries.
