Details: Product Description Behind every golf hole lies an influence on every golfer's game that few golfers ever contemplate: the course architect. Why a hole dog-legs left and not right, why bunkers end up where they are, the length of a hole, the view from the tee--all these factors and many more are the result of choices made by the golf architect to challenge, and sometimes intimidate, any golfer's game. Tom Doak, one of America's youngest and most successful golf architects, here discusses his craft and explains the strategies behind a golf architect's decisions. Knowing why a course is laid out is critical to how the course should be played. Knowledgeable golfers and beginners alike will find The Anatomy of a Golf Course fascinating--and stroke saving--reading. Review "On one level, this is a lucid look inside the mind of a golf architect. On a second, more important level, it's an instruction book--it tells you exactly how to read a course."--George F. Pepper, Editor-In-Chief, "Golf" Magazine "Tom Doak is a brilliant and innovative course architect who has created courses which excite the imagination and reveal his mastery of the art. Every golfer, from scratch to 36, will benefit from reading this book--Joseph S. F. Murdoch, President, Golf Collector's Society "Tom Doak is a practicing golf architect and a dedicated student of golf design. He is also quite good at explaining many of the more technical aspects of golf literature in easily-understood terms. This book will appeal to the many golfers who find gold architecture a fascinating subject and want to learn more about it."--Tom Fazio About the Author Tom Doak learned golf-course design as a member of Pete Dye's legendary course-architecture staff, and is now a highly regarded course architect in his own right, having designed and built courses throughout the United States. He is also a contributing aditor for Golf Magazine. He lives in Traverse City, Michigan.
