Synopsis There are over 500,000 golf holes in the world. So how did the editors of Golf Magazine - and their panel of experts - come up with the top 500. The winners include holes at such revered courses as Pebble Beach and St Andrew's, as well as lesser known spots like Royal Antwerp in Belgium and Yarra Yarra in Australia. In case you favourite golfer doesn't have time to try out the full list, the editors narrowed it down to the top 100, and finally, unbelievably, the best 18 holes worldwide. In addition there are the "best of the best": the most scenic, the most heroic, the best in Europe, the best of the architect Robert Trent Jones, and so on. What better gift could there be? With nearly 800 colour photographs of the holes - the top 18 even have full schematics - and commentary from the experts this is the golf book for golf lovers. From the Inside Flap What makes a great golf hole? For starters, you look at strategy and difficulty. Next, the kind of hole that gives an average player a chance but allows an exceptional, thinking player an opportunity for a sub-par score. Then, the ability of a hole to play with the golfer's head-along with the hole to play with the golfer's head-along with the hole's physical attributes like hazards, pitch of the fairway, and green speed. Finally, the beauty of the whole itself, the ingenuity of its design, and its reputation among those who have played it. The 500 World's Greatest Golf Holes, a compulsively comprehensive book by George Peper and the editors of Golf Magazine, is an invitation to visit - and perhaps replay - five hundred great golf holes, those that most inspire, challenge, and excite golfers worldwide. To decide just which holes to include in this book, Golf Magazine's editors teamed up with an international panel representing other publications across the globe, from the Buenos Aires Times in South America to Svensk Golf in Scandinavia, The Compleat Golfer in South Africa to Asian Golfer in the Far East. The result is 125 par 3s, 250 par 4s, and 125 par 5s of golf greatness - holes at such revered courses as Augusta National and Pebble Beach, St. Andrews and Turnberry, and at lesser-known spots like Prairie Dunes in Kansas and Yarra Yarra in Australia. Arranged alphabetically by par in three sections titled The Eighteen, The One Hundred, and The Five Hundred, the book includes more than eight hundred full-colored photographs, anecdotal and strategic description of each hole, and hand painted topographical renderings of the first eighteen. A final, surprising chapter highlights holes that share special features: the most punishing holes that share special features: the most punishing holes, most scenic, best by the great course designers, hardest courses to get on to and those with the most public access, best with bunkers or hardest to putt, the holes that have produced great moments in golf history, etc. Whether you are looking for a golf hole in particular or are just particular about great golf holes, this all-embracing book offers hours of pleasure. If you want to play the world's great holes, here's where
