Does anyone know a place or places where some of these may be for sale? I have St. Andrews and Pebble Beach in my study framed and I like the routing maps, architectural drawings much better than pictures of courses.
I assume they are the property of the clubs not the architect but I have not seen them for sale at any clubs.
1> As maybe mentioned previously, for Ross courses, you can visit the Tufts Archives web site, http://www.tuftsarchives.org/
From home page you go to 'Donald Ross' and then 'List of Ross Courses' and then 'View...' . You will a list of Ross courses, and the documents for each course. Tufts has the 'Ross' layouts for a number of courses, and has the individual hole sketches in some instances.
I noted Tufts has routing plans for a number of courses and quickly noted a few courses often discussed at GCA,
I ordered a copy of Ross' Seminole plan and was happy with the result.
2> At eBay, if you search 'golf course maps' you can find a number of the 'modern' color renderings of the old courses. A few are in the style of the 'World Atlas of Golf' if you know what I mean. It is the style of oblique aerial sketchings that I first noticed in World Atlas of Golf back in the mid 80s.
