Forrest:

As I've been collecting golf architecture books for about 35 years, I never quite know what to assume people have read.

Perhaps you are right. I just worry that some of the books which cover fundamentals - both the classics and more recent efforts - might be a bit dry.

In any case, the good news is that there are far more choices today than just ten years ago thanks to people like yourself and Paul Daley.

Kind words. Thanks. It is disappointing that my book is all black/white. But it does have more words than Paul's essay collection -- the rascal limited us each to just few thousand!

If I were to advise on just one book for anyone wanting a rounded appreciation of the art, I'd say "The Links" by Hunter. Simply the best concise writing on the subject. And you feel like you have learned something when you are done.

Don't worry about the black and white. Paul Daley's first book was like that as well.

Moreover, such presentation certainly didn't hurt Geoff Shackelford with the Cypress Point book.

Tim and Forrest,

I have to agree with Forrest and I would always recommend 'The Links' by Hunter.  I would also recommend Doak's book 'The Anatomy of a Golf Course'.

Forrest's book is also worth having to show to member how much work actually must go into designing a golf course.
