World Atlas of Golf

The greatest courses and how they are played

By Mark Rowlinson

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

First published in 1976, The World Atlas of Golf has a unique place in golf literature as the first book to take a global view of the sport and the history and architects of course design. Now, re-written for the twenty-first century, this new format is a handy size, with expert guidance of the world's greatest courses. Written by an expert panel comprising of course designers, ex-tour pros, leading journalists and commentators from around the globe, The World Atlas of Golf covers the courses that are seminal in the history of the sport as well as those that simply demonstrate architectural brilliance. Sumptuous computer-generated artworks accompany each course, illustrating features in impressive detail, while 'cut away' illustrations of signature holes highlight their particular challenges and show the course architect's ingenuity.With feature pages that provide a thorough understanding of the golfing scene in every part of the world and maps showing the locations of key clubs, this is the book that will set the benchmark in golf publishing for the next 30 years.
