This lavishly illustrated volume spotlights 50 of the most stunning golf courses around the globe. Transporting us to the birthplace of golf—Great Britain and Ireland—as well as renowned sites from St. Andrews in Augusta to Ballybunion in Melbourne, from Pebble Beach to Valderrama, Golf Around the World demonstrates the tremendous appeal of the game through depictions of the top world class courses. Panoramas of lush greens and beautifully landscaped courses as well as close-up details of the unique characteristics of each course accompany a text that describes the physical layout of each and the techniques used by the champions to tackle the challenges they present. A brief history of each clubhouse and resort is provided, complemented by images that showcase these splendid structures—from the magnificent 18th century Georgian mansion that is the heart of Loch Lomond Golf Club to the stately 132-room Edwardian hotel of Turnberry Golf Club in Scotland. With a wealth of inside information on each course, golfing tips from the pros who have conquered these courses, and photographs documenting highlights of the competitions played on each, this indispensable volume belongs on the bookshelf of every golfer.
