The lovely photos are accompanied with a half page description of the course highlights and pitfalls. Course designers are named and the year each course opened. The last page give the "best of" holes in each of 8 categories and tells which course and which hole is best in that category, such as Best Long Par Three. Beautiful coffee table and memoir book.
