Creating classics - the golf courses of Harry Colt

£29.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Green cloth covered hardback with gilt lettering on spine, in almost new condition. Bottom edge of dust cover is very very slightly wrinkled and has very slight wear on back; in all other respects the book is as new.

This book, voted "GOLF Magazine"'s number 1 golf book of 2009, is a lavish, full-colour essential addition to any golfer's coffee table, featuring Sky Sports' golf commentator Bruce Critchley and five-time Open champion Peter Thomson. 'The real test of a course: is it going to live'? This was the maxim of arguably the greatest ever golf-course architect - Harry Shapland Colt. Having designed or influenced the layout of many of the world's most famous courses - Muirfield, Pine Valley, Wentworth - Colt's creations provide an enduring, pulse-racing test for today's golfer. "Creating Classics" tells the fascinating story of this golf visionary. From Colt's early years at Rye and Sunningdale to his partnerships with the other great architects of the early 20th century, the book embraces the phenomenal designs that emerged from this Golden Age of course construction. For golfers passionate about challenging courses steeped in character, this spectacular book lets players discover the rich heritage of their favourite golfing turf. Colt's definitive 18 holes, as chosen by golf's most distinguished commentator Bruce Critchley, and a foreword from five-time Open champion Peter Thomson, accompany stunning photographs and wonderful personal tales. This book will enlighten all lovers of the game about a special group of courses with unparalleled pedigree and a common bond - Harry Colt.
