Spectacular Golf
The Courses, People, and Stories That Make The Game Great

by David Gould

Golf Digest and Levin Associates bring together the stories and rich history of the sport of golf with the inspiration that comes from the majestic beauty of great courses around the world.

Nothing captures the imagination or makes golfers yearn to play more than to see a fantastic hole laid out before them--the beauty and the thoughtfulness of the fairways, the dramatic backgrounds, the subtle breaks of the greens, the daunting hazards. And if you cannot get to the course, how better to feel the lay of the land then to experience it in the magnificently oversized format of a richly illustrated volume that you can visit again and again at your leisure?

Spectacular Golf celebrates, for the first time in one book, the vast spectrum of courses throughout the world: from St. Andrew's, Royal Troon, and Murifield to Pebble Beach, Augusta National, and Pinehurst; from Winged Foot and Shinnecock Hills to Casa de Campo, and Beaver Creek. With 36 pages of fold-outs opening to nearly four feet each, and over 100 color photos, this book has the advantage of being able to bring the reader to the most spectacular courses and holes--allowing every golfer the opportunity to become intimate with glorious places and events.

With over 130 pages of entertaining and informative text ranging from anecdotes to course architecture, and an unrivaled assemblage of illustrations from the Golf Digest library, Spectacular Golf brings the wonders of golf's legendary courses into your home.

The text and its stories are further brought to life through the thoughtful incorporation of vintage photos of special moments and historic courses in their earlier years, as well as the stunning photography of Golf Digest's photographers that allow those wonderful moments to be cherished permanently in a handsome package.
