The Anatomy of a Golf Course


Product Description

Tom Doak

Foreword by Ben Crenshaw

“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 Peper, former Editor in Chief, Golf Magazine


Now recognized as a classic look at contemporary golf architecture, The Anatomy of a Golf Course is Tom Doak’s look at the challenges facing the golf architect and how course layout affects the golfer’s game. Doak is acknowledged as one of the premier course architects in the world, with perhaps his most famous design being Pacific Dunes in Bandon,OR.


Tom Doak is the principal designer at Renaissance Golf Design, based in Traverse City,MI.
